500 Gator Clamps
Gator Brand Clamps are made using a stainless steel continuous band with extruded, asymmetrical threads for reliable performance. The edges of the band are rolled to prevent any sharp edges from damaging the hose. This is especially important on silicone hoses that have a soft, vulnerable cover.
An asymmetrical (offset) gear box is employed to reduce clamp twist when tightening. The gear box housing is designed to remain stationary as the clamp tightened to prevent movement over those hose. The combination of the asymmetrical gear box and the extruded threads provides an even clamping force over the surface of the hose that ensures proper sealing with minimal torque. Gator Brand Clamps hold up under 3.7ft./lbs. (5mm) torque; conventional clamps strip and fail at this torque.
Gator Brand Clamps can be installed using a flat blade screwdriver, metric socket wrench, or with the Gator Brand Flexible Clamp Tool for maximum torque potential.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
