Hose Clamp Pliers for Constant Tension Clamps
A constant tension clamp or spring clamp is used to apply clamping pressure quickly and easily. They are similar in design to a clip; the spring clamp provides a strong clamping pressure useful in holding down hoses or pipe lines. Experts prefer spring clamps because of the constant and firm tension on critical engine components.
How do you remove a spring hose clamp?
Use a specialty hose clamp plier like CTA’s NEW #1224 - Locking Hose Clamp Pliers with offset or #4027 – Locking Hose Clamp Pliers. The ergonomic design makes opening and locking the jaws easier than competitors. Its 32 x 19mm head with multi-directional slotted pattern allows easy hooking of teeth into the slots on the 2 protruding arms found on the spring hose clamp. Simply squeeze the handles of the plier to pinch and loosen the clamp, then slide the clamp off the hose.
If you plan to keep the spring hose clamp in a fully open position, but also need to use the pliers elsewhere in between, we recommend our #7396 - 3 Pc. Spring-Band Clamp Locking Pin Set to free up hands and pliers.
