    Where to find hose clamp ends??

    Where can I find those little rubber ends that you put on the end of a hose clamp so it will protect your skin from getting sliced open?

    I have looked and cant find them.
    Need to buy a bunch!

    No idea Bill, but I would be interested as well!!! I just counted 7 cuts on my hands from finishing my head install yesterday!!
    I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

    Make them yourself using PLASTI-DIP and a piece of metal the same width and thickness of your clamp. After it cures, just pop it off and put it on your hose clamp. That should do the trick. The PLASTI-DIP comes in all kinds of colors too!

    i just put the the plasti-dip stuff on the hose clamp itself, you can't back them out, but that really isn't a issue most of the time. (just do it after you run the end through the clamp and not before.... )

    I like the heat shrink hose clamps. They are not reusable but you definately dont have to worry about cuts.
