An amazing bargain!

Posted on February 19th, 2009 in Driving Emotion,Materials,tools by Julian Edgar

The other day I made a purchase that can only be considered an amazing bargain.

I first saw the goods (and then bought them) on Australian eBay, but by going direct to the manufacturer’s site, you can get them even cheaper.

So what am I talking about? Hose clamps – no less than 150 of them!

For just AUD$64.90 you get 150 stainless steel hose clamps to suit hoses from 6mm to 60mm. The clamps are packaged in boxes and appear to be of good quality.

And not only that, but you also get a flexible drive screwdriver (complete with three different sized socket bits to suit the clamps), a travel mug and a carry bag!

The company claims the retail value to be $240 – and that sounds about right.

The $64.90 cost includes postage to anywhere in Australia, and mine came delivered in a good quality cardboard box.

The deal is ‘while stocks last’ so you’d better get in fast!

Go here for the details.

    Radiospares sells a hose clamp banding kit by Stranglehold. It consists of a steel band with indentations for a screw slug and Samson housings and screws. Here’s the product datasheet:

    Unfortunately it’s quite a bit more expensive than your solution, but for odd sizes (large, mostly) it’s a very elegant solution. I’ve used this product on my projects quite a lot and they work very well. As for the price, maybe you’ll have better luck on ebay? Radiospares isn’t the first place I’d look for low prices.

    Thanks for the tip Julian. This deal represents terrific value. Even if I never use some sizes, the savings made on the cost of the common sizes makes up for any loss on unused clamps (and I still have the unused clamps for those odd jobs).
    The flexible tool provided is the BEST way to tighten hose clamps. It will quickly become the first tool to pick up when using hose clamps and it comes for free.
