Jubilee® Clips, manufacturer of the eponymous world famous Original hose clamp, offers a range of hose clamps much wider than just the worm drive hose clips it is known for. The Original Jubilee® worm drive hose clip’s smallest size has an adjustment range of 9.5 to 12mm. Nevertheless, even for hoses smaller than this, Jubilee® offers a choice of hose clips:
Jubilee® Juniors (Nut & Bolt Clips)
These mini clips, also known as nut & bolt clips, are ideal for small bore hoses with relatively low pressures, where little clamping force is required. Adjusted by a single bolt, Jubilee® Juniors are available in mild steel zinc plated and marine grade 304 stainless steel.
The Jubilee® Junior (nut and bolt) clip has a 7mm hexagonal head screw and is ideal for applications such for securing petrol pipes, heater and other small bore hoses.
These useful clips offer working diameters ranging from 7mm up to 19mm (up to 16mm in 304 stainless steel) and provide a tightening torque of 2 Nm maximum.
Jubilee® ‘O’ Clips (2-Ear clamps)
Jubilee® ‘O’ Clips are widely used for maintenance and OEM applications. Mainly used on air, fluid, gas and steam lines and also suitable for low pressure hydraulic applications. Sometimes affectionately referred to as “Lemon Clips” due to their shape and also referred to as double ear clips and 2-ear clips.
The absence of a screw mechanism allows Jubilee® ‘O’ Clips to be useful on extremely small hoses, down to 3mm working diameter. The tamper proof nature of the fitting may also make the Jubilee® ‘O’ Clips suitable for certain applications where there may be a risk associated with any interference to the fitting.
Pincers are used to crimp the ears of the clamps and affect a proper seal. 2-ear clamps are installed by closing one ear fully first, the second ear is then closed so that the first ear opens slightly. This builds a resilient strength into the clamp in a spring-like action to hold against pressure, vibration and hose shrinkage due to temperature changes or ageing.
Jubilee® offers Juniors and ‘O’ Clips in bulk quantities, as well as convenient assortment packs.
