Ideal Tridon stainless steel hose clamps are manufactured using a three-piece design, consisting of a band, screw, and housing. Our one piece mechanically interlocked housings are made from a single stamping with no tabs or stakes that can fail under higher tightening torques. Ideal Tridon also uses a rectangular notch design along the band, which minimizes stress cracking under higher band loads and enhances the overall strength of the band.
