'O' Clips offer a more permanent means of securing pipes and hoses than traditional, 'screw-type' hose clips.
Just push the hose on to your union and carefully measure the outside diameter.
Remember that hoses usually get bigger when pushed onto a union so measure carefully.
Then choose the 'O' clip that is the closest size larger.
Fit the clip and squeeze the two 'ears' with the special pliers.
You'll have a tight, 360º seal that will never come loose.
If you ever want to remove the clip just use the pliers to snip through one of the ears as shown in the pictures.
'O' CLIPS NOT INCLUDED BUT AVAILABLE SEPARATELY.
