Product Description

This Oetiker 18500060 Stepless one-ear clamp kit contains stainless steel Stepless one-ear clamps and a pair of standard jaw pincers for clamping hose clamps in a variety of diameters. The dimple or indentation on the ear of the clamp increases the clamping force for a more secure hold, and the mechanical interlock of this clamp keeps it securely closed and provides better corrosion resistance than a spot-weld, which is vulnerable to corrosion. The ear clamps are stainless steel for resisting scaling and corrosion for at least 1000 hours of exposure to salt spray in compliance with Deutsches Institut für Normung-English International Organization for Standardization (DIN EN ISO) standard 9227. This clamp kit is suitable for attaching a variety of hoses to fittings or other devices in various industrial applications, such as heavy machinery, hydraulics, irrigation, food processing, automobile manufacturing, and petroleum industries, among others.

Hose clamps attach tubing and hoses to fittings to prevent flow leakage, or are used for hose or wire mounting applications. They come in a variety of designs to distribute uniform pressure over the circumference of hoses to bind them to fittings. Other hose clamp types are used for mounting, strapping, clamping, and positioning hose or wire. Hose clamps are suitable for a large number of industries, and commonly used in industrial, electronic, and automotive applications.

Oetiker manufactures hose clamps, rings, couplings, conveyor chains, hinged belts, and other connecting parts and accessories. The company, founded in 1942 and headquartered in Horgen, Switzerland, meets International Organization for Standardization/Technical Specification (ISO/TS) standard 16949.

If you work on a european car, this is what you need, but make sure you also buy some smaller clamps. I bought this plus the 5/16, 1/4, and 7/16 clamps also available on amazon, and my worries about removing these things and having to replace them with a garbage screw clamp are gone! These go on easy, and never let go unless you purposefully pop them off with a plier or pick. Best hose clamp EVER!

Excellent clamping system. Not always possible to get the pliers situated correctly for an automotive application and useful to think about how you'd un-do the clamps in-situ if required, but for fuel lines and other things you don't want pinched or coming loose, very nice system.

Decent quality, but also quite pricey for what you get ($45 at the time of our purchase); I've seen drop-forged tools that will do the same job and still come with a selection of clamps for cheaper on this site. Also be mindful that most Oetiker items on Amazon do not correctly list both imperial and metric with the proper equivalency on the clamps and this is no exception (at least at the time of writing this review).

Know your sizing charts, and know that these type of clamps have a "clamping range". There is no standard for listing the diameter of these clamps at the top, middle, or even the bottom of said range, and typically it's just listed as the diameter matching the diameter of the hose it fits most snugly upon prior to clamping it down. Depending on the application, it's entirely possible to combine different near-matching sizes of hoses, with different near-matching sizes of barbs, and still fall within the aforementioned clamping range using multiple sizes of clamps. However, if you're doing a job like a high-pressure fuel injection system where it really matters, you may be out of luck if you don't do your research (or have enough backup clamps of different sizes to complete the job). Never replace an Oetiker clamp with a worm gear, tension band, zip tie, or anything but another Oetiker or a professional crimp.

I have only used these on a few applications so far....but they are certainly nicer than worm screw hose clamps. Easier to install, and Pretty sure they will hold better. The stub on the clams does stick up a little, but (again) not as bad as screw on clamps. I won't know for sure how well they hold until I get a chance to run the sprayer a 250-300 psi. Only have used on air hose at 135 psi so far.

This is exactly the right solution for permanent hose connections. Neater than worm clamps by far. I principally use two sizes for my home draft beer system, and found buying replacement ear clamps fairly inexpensive as well.

Love these clamps. I used them on my Volvo and the fuel hose on my 98 Plymouth Grand Voyager. Perfect fit and no leaks whatsoever

The kit worked perfectly for reinstallation of a gas filter on a project car I have been working on for some time.

If you own a ETEC, you must use these clamps. This box has all the size that you would need.
