Buying strip banding with separate clamp heads not only saves money but gives great flexibility in use, since you can make a clamp of any diameter when you need it. You just cut the banding to length and hook it onto the clamp head. Banding comes in two widths, 5/16" and 1/2", each 13' in length, enough to make seven 6" diameter clamps, for example. Each kit includes eight clamp heads.
Tested against a number of current clamps on the market, our clamps outperformed them all. The 5/16" width tested at 32 inch lbs of torque before any aspect of the clamp failed, ample in such uses as dust collection systems, clothes dryers, and hoses from 1" diameter up. The 1/2" clamp withstood 175 inch lbs. Ideal for all usual applications as well as for coopered woodwork, the 1/2" banding is for 1-1/2" diameter and larger.
All components of the clamp heads and the bands are stainless steel, suitable for both exterior and interior applications.
Additional clamp heads are available in packages of eight.The 1/2" SS Band Clamp Kit is no longer available.
