I was today years old when I found out that heat shrink hose clamps existed. Thanks.

They're one time use. I used them to make a hose from silicone elbows, so they're permanent. I used worm drives on the ends.

I forgot to add that they go by I.D., so measure the O.D. of the hose you want to use them on.

since they are one time use just wondering if you have spares on the shelf do they shrink over time

I've got 3 that are 1.75 I.D. I'm not using. If you run them thru the google machine, you'll see they come on a cardboard ring to keep them from shrinking. Collapse the cardboard, then install on hose.....

I've used them for years,love em.if your shopping around,Allstar performance repackages the gates as their own.shows up in a Allstar wrapper with says gates on the band.
if you end up using them on the regular gates a removal tool that works well.doesn't cut the hose.
I had the worst time tracking down the sizes. That's why I posted the chart they emiled me. I never saw the Allstar ones. Most of the Amazon listings just say "CLAMP", so you had to have the model number.

nice chart.
I get them through summit,it's kind of odd to gauge some things @ first.like some hoses are a tad larger when slipped over their respective applications.
