I bet you knew the guy who taught me the proper name for snap rings and other metal retaining rings. The mechanic called them Jesus-rings, for what he said when they bit off part of a finger tip.

Clamp-aid is the brand. Some of the best money I ever spent. They stay on really well and give a nice finished look aside from saving blood. I Still don't have full range of motion in my thumb The heat shrink clamps are an interesting idea; I will have to pick up a few to try out. Thanks for the link.
You keep the heat shrink around to close the gash on your hand.

Re: Gates Powergrip Hose Clamps

First thing I do when I have to work around hose clamps on a rewire job.

Is to reach into my bag of to short Heat Shrink tube leftovers. I then proceed to heat shrink all the tails of any offending hose clamps.

Now the job is OSHA safe for a re-wire.

Ya need a little iron in them for strength. The 316 is too soft and galls then strips out, which makes them maybe a one time use, if you can get them tight enough.

Re: Gates Powergrip Hose Clamps

I had wondered if using the rescue tape (awesome stuff... I want to wrap up everything ) is cutting off the O2 or not as well. I suspect not enough to cause long term issues.

I also tried the Scotts Mastic Tape but it remains sticky and attracts dirt.
