    Tried 3 different sizes from this kit and none worked well. Tight enough to not leak and started to go D shape and leak. A little tighter and strip out slots so will not release. Further loosening and screw backs out due to no thrust shoulder. Look like stainless but plated mild steel so kinks prevent staying round. All in all, crap. Available HF, Amazon, and various others same package.

    Ive been switching over to the Napa fuel injection clamps. I got sick of the cheap screw hose clamps stripping out before I felt they were even close to tight enough.
