Crushed Beads on Outside of Channel

October 2019

Many molded hoses have a special channel for the hose clamp. These channels are typically found on air intake systems in cars, trucks and many powersports applications. Attempting to replace an old clamp with a new clamp that is too wide for the channel will not only crush the beads on the outside of the channel, it will result in a poor seal.
