Question

does the 3" mean it will go around three in. of of bundled hoses?

Asked on 06/18/2015 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

The stainless band by itself (without the rubber insulator) will be the exact measurement. With the rubber, I have found the diameter will be a little less (2 x the thickness of the rubber). If you hoses are exactly 3 inches, with no give, it may be too tight. However, considering rubber hoses have give, you will probably be OK. Otherwise, your option is to have about 1/16" gap at the clamp side.

Answer

That's a good question - if you mean the circumference (measurement around the outside of the bundled hoses) then I would think that is what they mean. I would doubt that it means a measurement across the center of that bundle (diameter) which at 3 inches would mean a much longer circumference and quite a large clamp.

Answer

I have never seen a 3". The 1" certainly can carry a bundle 1" in diameter. To support the load of a 3" one would need to use a bolt rather than a screw. A race might be more practical. The smaller sizes I have used work well.

I hope they do-it's a great product for holding steering cables, wires, and the like. You'll have to ask JTD about the selection

Question

what is the mounting hole size?

Asked on 02/23/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I didn't actually measure the hole because I didn't feel like taking the thing apart. But, I used an 11 mm SS fastener (nut and bolt) on it. So far the clamp has worked fine in our SE Alaska on my ocean going sailboat.

Answer

The bottom strap is odd long for adjustment and the top hole is just under 1/4" . It'll take a # 8-#12 screw.

Question

Is the cushion material in the stainless steel cushion clamps UV resistant? If not, what would you recommend to secure a wire bundle on top of a sailboat mast?

Asked on 03/07/2020 by John from Maryland

Top Answer

UV will deteriorate the gasket but it will take quite a while. Treating it with something like You could use split wire loom (https://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=4346) to protect the wires.
