Note that this device doesn't work in a really tight area because you have to flip the clamp over 180 degrees to close the clamp out. To remove the clamp, just cut the "bridge" with some side cutters. I ordered some .041" SS wire to try with again to see if that goes easier. I'll use my 0.032" for garden hoses and such.
The price point IS a little high on them, however to build one yourself, from the stainless materials and brass, your time better not be worth anything and you better plan on making a lot of them. I'm okay with someone making some money on this very useful tool.
Watch the video on how to use it. It explains things very well.
There definitely is a little practice needed to put the wire clamp on fast and efficiently. It was a little awkward at first, but by the third one, it went a little smoother.
You need to have enough room to flop the clamp 180 degrees at the end to lock everything in place. The clamp of perpendicular to the clamping piece. Like any tool, you are limited at times to where you can use it. You need to have a little space. I was able to clamp an air line to the back of a plasma cutter without much of a hassle. The fitting, is right at the case of the cutter. It worked pretty good for my first attempts. The hoses seeped air with the normal worm clamps.
It’s a very simple process that is awkward until you’re used to it. I’m throwing this in my off - road travel bag. Great sense of security to be able to make any clamp size that could come up.
1. Correct wire for the job = good results (in an emergency, do what you have to do eg. hangar wire) Disclaimer: This isn’t my ‘area’, however, due to the tools design and minimal effort required to tighten, I’m sure it can snap any wire up to 0.61 , hence my selection of annealed and relatively high tensile strength wire.
2. The tools designed procedure for locking after achieving desired wire pressure, doesn’t apply additional pressure ie. further tighten the wire. This is a deceivingly difficult and beneficial bit of engineering.
The finished wire clamp is aesthetically pleasing and if the ends are tucked in as the instructions suggest, they DO NOT snag on anything.
What held me back for a long time was the price. Seemed kind of steep for what it was. In retrospect, I should have taken the plunge a long time ago.
The tool is well made. I would rate it about the same as my Snap-On tools.
Expensive? Yes. Worth it? For any mechanic, handyman or maker, Definitely.
If you have a mechanic, handyman or maker in your life, here's a tool they might not have that they didn't realize they needed.
Ordered this for my husband and he loves it. He is a car guy(so he saw it on his car shows) but he also is an superintendent of a masonry company. They go through a few water hoses (expensive ones) every few months. Also with the saws and the large industrial mixers. This has already saved them so much time by being able to custom make clamps. They have also used clamptite to secure the safety rails on the scaffolding.
