Accordingly, hose clamps come with plastic, metal, different diameters, bands, separate housing as well as other types. They include spring clamps, ear clamps and screw clamps. They also include wire clamps, worm-drive hose clamps, and embossed hose clamps. These clamps can be used as an alternative for the conventional screw clamp, but are more attractive in appearance.
