I’ve always hated using hose clamps. I’d buy them from Home Depot and curse when they are installed and leak. I’d tighten them more and they’d deform and sometimes break. It did not dawn on me that, like everything else, there are different quality hose clamps than the crappy “All Gain” ones I use. This is particularly true for my compressor hose, which, over time, loosen and then leak. My compressor only needs 125psi.

Unfortunately for me, all the top brands are only available on Amazon and not local. Stores here sell hose clamps as generic, not even mentioning the brand. No wonder I cannot find a good hose clamp.
