Vortex Adjustable Jubilee Clamp
The Vortex Adjustable Jubilee Clamp 1″ to 15″ is one of those must-have items. Jubilee clamps, sometimes referred to as hose locks, are a popular clip fastener, and they’re most often used to secure a hose or length of tubing onto an appropriate fixture.
The fixture may be a tap, a spigot, nipple or barb, or any other outlet type from where air or liquid may flow through the hose when it’s clamped into place.
This clamp is a perfect item for use in hydroponic growing setups as it incorporates some practical attributes and features, and these include:
- Adjusts from 1″ to 15″
- Ideal way of securing a hose to a source of fluid
- Strong and durable
- Very versatile design
- Will last for years
How Does it Work?
You will have seen adjustable jubilee clamps often enough. Their chief use is to attach a hose or length of tubing firmly onto a suitable fluid source such as a tap, spigot or nipple, or any other outlet that can supply the hose with water or other fluid.
These products usually consist of a flat band of flexible steel, or sometimes brass or nylon, which loops into a bank or circle with a tightening mechanism. Its design is a screw fitting, and most will include a worm gear for tightening.
They usually work by being put around the outside of your hose where it joins with the outlet before safely tightening down until it pinches tightly around the joint between your hose and the tap, spigot, etc.
This tightening minimises the risk of any leakage or tube detachment due to high pressure.
You can tighten the clamps using a screwdriver or similar key when it is in place around the hose. But some of these products have alternative means of pulling and may instead be known as wire clamps, spring clamps or ear clamps. The cheaper variants, such as O-clips, don’t have any screw mechanism and need manual pinching to tighten them.
There is also a worm drive clamp available, which you can view here.
How to Use?
This product is straightforward to use. They help moderate pressure in various applications, and they can essentially work as a type of compression or crimp fitting.
They are versatile fasteners that can be deployed repeatedly in various roles. Because their band design is this strong, especially when made of steel or other hard-wearing materials, you may use them as a heavy-duty cable tie.
