Although they can be easy to forget or neglect, hose clamps are among the most important pieces of kit aboard any boat with through-hulls for the simple reason that all it takes is for just one to fail to send your boat to the bottom. With this in mind, PYI Inc. has now unveiled a new line of 316L stainless steel, nonperforated worm-gear clamps to ensure all those hose connections stay connected as they should. Designed to be both gentle on most hose types and provide a long-lasting stable retention force, the clamps feature a smooth inside surface, a raised edge on the embossed heavy-duty band and a durable one-piece double-locked screw cage. Available in sizes from 1/3in to 15in, they are also highly corrosion-resistant.
