Ratchet Clamp for Tubing

  • Good quality clamp for In sump use By Mike on 3/22/14

    Really impressed didn't think it would get tight but it did! Impressive
  • Some problems By Scott on 7/15/13

    3/4" will not allow full clamp down unless you use a shim of some kind and very hard to separate. Even with all that still safest material to use in my aquarium.
  • quick and easy! By James on 3/25/13

    These work for now, but I ordered both 1 and 3/4 inch sizes for my sump, they are holding water with no leaks, but long term I may need to find another style
  • Does not fit 1/2 tubing By Rob on 3/25/13

    These clamps were too big to cinch tightly over my 1/2 ID aquarium tube.
  • seems like they should work well By Brad on 1/23/13

    I dont have water in the system yet, but they should work well. The only problem is, is that you need the next size up for whatever hose your using. Either that or BRS sent me the wrong ones. I have a 1" drain and a 3/4" return. So I ordered the 1" and 3/4" braided nylon tubing as well as the 1" and 3/4" clamps. I had to use the supposed 1" clamp for the 3/4" tubing. Im going to contact BRS tomorrow about this as they might already be closed. But i definitely recommend on buying a variety of sizes to be sure you have the right ones. But these should work just fine and not cause leaks like vanisher says he had a problem with. If you cant get them quite tight enough by hand just use some pliers to get a few more clicks on it. Dont squeeze too hard or yes you can break them as they are just plastic. But theres no reason they can make a good seal, or your have pressure thats more than what you should even be having in the lines.
  • Not that great By vanisher on 9/14/12

    I love BRS, and their recommendations are 99.999% spot on, but these I have to disagree with.

    Yes, I agree plastic (pvc, abs, bla bla) is better than metal for reefing.

    However, these couldn't get a tight clamp for the life of them.

    I used the screw tighten metal ones, and guess what, the leaks stopped.

    I guess I'll be replacing the metal ones every now and then. For now I get to return these.
  • Great alternative to metal By Nicholas on 8/7/12

    These are highly suggested when used around salt water. I couldn't find these locally either.
  • Hard to find By Nicholas on 8/7/12

    I couldn't find this product anywhere local to me. They're great clamps when you need to use them in close proximity to saltwater.
  • Will not fit "two little fishes" ball valve. By David on 7/29/12

    I purchased these to make a more secure union between my 1/2 inch tubing and the various valves and fittings I would be using. I chose the "two little fishes" brand for my valves. The 1/2" tubing I purchased fit perfect onto the valve, however the 1/2" da her will not close enough to tighten the tubing to the valve, even though it is tightened to the max. It just spins round and round very loose on the tubing. Just to let you know.
  • nice to have By Tim on 5/31/12

    great to be able to get these instead of the metal screw drive ones. thanks BRS
