I have used these on some of my hoses. i know them as super clamps. They are a bit more expensive but have a larger clamping area and haven't let me down at work yet.

Far too bulky, especially at the overlap area which results in poor sealing.

I would never use a clamp like that for any automotive application.

Except maybe as an exhaust clamp

Never for water or boost

most water treatment and process plants i have worked on that use flexible hoses mostly use these clamps. If you look use the correct sized one, they have narrow bands of use i.e. 57-61mm, therefore seal very well in that range, it is when someone tries to fit them onto a 45mm hose when leaks happen.

they are a lot better than jubilee clips.

Jubilee clips seal, those bulky clamps do not.
Now they may work when different types of flexible hose are being used.....but most cars dont use big bulky industrial hose.

Ive tried several types over the years, and on most bulky clamps you can actually slip a feeler blade under the silicone hose at the portion where that thick band overlaps. They are SHIT for such an application.

And even a clamp like that is certainly never needed on something say under 2" pipe size. Even at 2" I would never even use that style of clamp. It simply isnt needed.

If you want to use that style of clamp, use these, where there is no additional piece set in at the overlap, and the section that does overlap is very thin. The bulky ones as per Mikalor etc are just rubbish by comparison.

For smaller hoses if you insist on not using normal jubilee style clamps, this style is better

Ive used these on 3" pipes at boost close to 40psi boost with no problems

And if you use strong T-Bolt style clamps like that, make sure the base metal pipe you're clamping over is strong enough that you dont end up crushing it.
Ive seen loads of people destroying aluminium pipes doing that.
