A Word About Torro Clamps

They deliver the reliability and the durability that make them the ideal hose clamps for plumbing, hose clamps for emergencies and for just about any application.
Pick the Perfect Size
There is nothing more frustrating then waiting on a part for a repair and then you get the wrong part. Choosing the right large hose repair clamp from the start will save you a lot of stress and aggravation.
Rule number one is do not “eyeball” the size. Just looking at the size of the hose clamp that is currently on the hose or was on the hose, is not the best way to make sure you order the right size. You never know, the hose clamp that is on there or was on there, may have been the wrong size.
The golden rule of choosing the right size clamp is to know the diameter of the pipe or the hose you are going to use the clamp on. Clamps are described using the range that they can be adjusted too. The diameter of the pipe or hose is the guiding force when choosing clamp size.
Whatever the diameter of the pipe or hose is should be the medium point of the clamp. A 2-inch clamp would not work well with a 2-inch clamp. You would be best going with a larger clamp to get the job done.
Of course, you can always ask your supplier, they will have the answers that you need.
