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

need an assortment of 3/16, 1/4, and 5/16, do you have a box with 10 each?

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
what is the mounting hole size?
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.

The bottom strap is odd long for adjustment and the top hole is just under 1/4" . It'll take a # 8-#12 screw.
Excellent Product - Super Service
This is a wonderful product. It is well constructed and is ideal for mounting windshields to UTV roll cages. I can think of 1000 uses for these clamps.

A high performance piece
Tie wraps and plastic clips and clamps work- but SS rubber lined clamps work better. High performance cars and boats use these clamps to anchor fuel lines, oil hoses, electric bundles etc. They give a professional look but more important they give professional results. Clamp it and forget it.
