False economies with hose clips

False economies with hose clips Complex, high-tech, expensive machinery can frequently be immobilised when an inexpensive component such as a hose clip malfunctions, causing considerable damage and often significantly threatening safety. Jubilee clips manufactured by L Robinson & Co have, over the years, proven to be safe, durable and capable in combating extreme clamping conditions. In fact, Jubilee clips exceed the demands of BSI in all areas. Continuous band serrations on a Jubilee clip allow ongoing tightening of the clip to take place in order to achieve the required torque. A hose clip with short threads can in cases where the incorrect size clip is chosen, wrongly indicate a tight clip. A certain amount of diameter flexibility can be obtained when using Jubilee if the correct size of hose clip is not available due to the band serrations being continuous, providing care is taken to avoid an oval formation of the clip. The positively riveted housing has a wraparound formation to allow free turning torque compatible with maximum strength, additionally ensuring that the screw and band engagement is held rigid and that it remains intact during installation. All screws have a 7mm hexagonal head and a unique crimp formation, which prevents the screws from disengaging from the band threads and housing.
