The Ideal-Tridon Snaplock 56 series stainless steel quick release worm gear clamp has a stainless steel band and housing, a zinc-plated steel screw, and a quick release mechanism. A worm gear mechanism adjusts the clamp’s diameter to precisely apply sealing pressure. The band’s 9/16” width provides a greater sealing area than clamps of smaller width. The band is made of stainless steel that conforms to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 201 standard and the housing is made of SAE 301 stainless steel, each providing resistance to scaling and corrosion. The slotted, 5/16” hex-head screw allows installation using a blade screwdriver, nut driver, or socket wrench. The screw and bridge are made of carbon steel that is zinc-plated for resistance to rust. The screw swivels to lock the clamp or disengage it for quick release.
Hose clamps attach hoses to fittings to prevent flow leakage. They come in a variety of designs and distribute uniform pressure over the circumference of hoses to bind them to fittings. Hose clamps are suitable for a large number of industries, and commonly used in industrial, electronic, and automotive applications.
