2.0 out of 5 stars Look good, but poorly engineered, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Outdoortips Stainless Steel Fuel Hose Clamp Line Pipe Clips - 10 x 10mm-16mm
I bought these to secure the new fuel hoses on my classic Alfa Romeo - stainless steel fittings look great on an old car, and won't corrode or seize over time. These clips are advertised as "fuel hose clamps", so I thought they'd be perfect for this purpose.

Sadly, although they do indeed look good, they're not sufficiently well-engineered. Fitting one clip on each end of the first replacement fuel hose, both clips "stripped out" (i.e. jumped and clicked, without getting any tighter) well before they became tight enough not to be easily rotated on the hose by hand.

If they can't be trusted to grip securely, then they're not suitable for any safety-critical application - and I think it's pretty irresponsible to describe them as "fuel hose clamps". Not worth the hassle of making a claim, but I won't buy anything like this from Amazon again. By way of comparison, the LMA stainless clips available at Demon Tweeks, Europa Spares and elsewhere are terrific, and inspire much more confidence than these ever could..
