"Used to secure a washing machine hose and they work fine. The strap is slotted all the way through and the screw thread consequently has a good grip with no risk of failure as the strap is fully tightened. Well rounded edges to the metal mean the strap won't cut into hoses."
"not as good as original Jubilee clips, used to patch an exhaust pipe on a car by joining different lengths to wrap around a piece of sheet steel to re-enforce the original pipe which i had used gun-gum to fill holes and joints to stop any blowing. did the job quite well but afraid to put too much pressure in case they snapped. job has lasted till now reasonably well but area is subject to all the elements and i think only original Jubilee clips would survive really well. good value for money and would probably better if i had greased the clip threads after fitting to stop any rust occurring but was not one of my priorities on a cold wet sunday afternoon with the sun going down."
