S & H Products has designed a hose clamp that is easy to operate while wearing gloves. It has an offset handle enables more control by users. The Hose Clamp is constructed from high quality cast aluminum and brass. It is built to be used with today's light weight hoses in the 1" and 1 - 1 /2" sizes. When clamped on the hose, a locking device, made of brass, locks the clamp safely in the closed position as shown in Figure 1 to the left.
