Ratchet clamps are perfect to secure Braided Vinyl tubing to barbed fittings. If you are using silicone or traditional thin wall tubing we highly suggest measuring the outside diameter of the tubing you will be working with to select the correct ratchet clamp.
Choose from ratchet clamps for the following vinyl tube sizes:
- 1/2" Braided Vinyl Tubing
- 3/4" Braided Vinyl Tubing
- 1" Braided Vinyl Tubing
- 1 1/4" Braided Vinyl Tubing
- 1.5" Braided Vinyl Tubing
- 2" Braided Vinyl Tubing

We use nominal ratings for our plumbing and fittings, so if you are using standard braided vinyl tubing in 3/4", you'll want a 3/4" ratchet clamp.
Have a great day!
You will need the spigot x barb adapter to connect to 3/4" tubing. If the tubing on the reefer tank is 1' soft tubing you will need to increase the output from 3/4" on the vectra and we recommend using the Vectra adapter kit along with the larger spigot x barb adapter to do so! I have included both options below!

The ratchet clamps (and all of our plumbing) are all rated in nominal sizes. This doesn't refer specifically to either the ID or the OD but the plumbings nominal size. Nominal size is the standardized sizing in plumbing (just like if you went to home depot, etc) so that you know a 1" pipe will fit a 1" union, which will fit a 1" barb, which will fit 1" braided nylon tubing with the help of a 1" ratchet clamp, though the ID/OD of none of these components actually measures 1" If you have a 1" barb with 1" braided nylon tubing connected to a 1" pipe, pump, etc then you would want the 1" ratchet clamp.
All of our ratchet clamps and plumbing is listed in nominal sizes, so if you have 1/2" nominal tubing you would want the 1/2" ratchet clamp.
