SS Hose Clamp Contacts

Finding good quality SS Hose clamps in the Philippines with stainless screws is almost impossible and if you do find the odd one, they might as well be gold plated!

I need to build up my inventory and will order from US or Australia a large assortment.

Any recommendations as to manufacturer and supplier? Ö.thanks!

Wham, bam, thank you Mam...

I have found that buying hose clamps in Australia is very much a case of take what you are given and like it, with no single source supplying all sizes.
The ones that I have brought have been expensive and of unknown quality, particularly the large (around 102mm) "superclamps".
If you can get an order to one of the reputable manufacturers in the USA I'd go that way.

AWAB brand hose clamps are 316 stainless steel. Lots of places sell them. Try, e.g., Defender: Awab Hose Clamps

We had an extensive discussion of this matter some months ago that included references to good sources for hose clamps that may be of value to you. Take a look at Check Your 'Made in China' Hose Clamps !

Good luck!
