Worm gear clamps provide a secure fit with high torque that prevents hose connections from slacking. When the clamp’s screw is turned, it pulls the threads of the band, tightening the clamp for a more secure fit around the hose or tube. These hose clamps have interlocking ends that apply consistent squeezing pressure on the hose and help prevent shearing. Worm clamps also hold the hose in place so it won't move or shake when high-pressure fluid is forced through the hose. They are often used with hydraulic hoses and industrial hoses, but their easy-to-attach fittings allow them to be used with almost any tubing. These hose clamps have interlocking ends, allowing their diameter to be adjusted for a more secure fit. Stainless steel worm clamps are a popular choice since they are resistant to rust, wear and a variety of chemical and environmental hazards.
