Hose clamp pliers are used to help remove and install hose clamps. Most often for hose clamps in automobiles but they can also be used for any machinery with clamps securing hoses including washing machines, refrigerators etc. The type of HCP needed is based upon the configuration of the clamp itself, the location of the hose and the opening and closing mechanism of the clamp itself.
What are hose clamp pliers
HCP are designed to open or secure different types of clamps. Sometimes in tight workspace areas, for example when working on automobile engines, hose clamp pliers can utilize extensions and cords to attach to the clamps opening and closing mechanism. This allows the user to secure or unlock the clamp mechanism and rotate the tool freely in a confined workspace.
The Anatomy of hose clamp pliers consists of: the handle, where users grip the tool; the fixed joint point, where the handles of the pliers meet and allow the jaw or head fixture to open and close manually or with spring action; and the teeth or fitting mechanism which coincides with the specific type of hose clamp being removed or installed.
How are hose clamp pliers used
Hose clamp pliers are used by attaching the pliers to the exact opening and closing mechanism of the clamp being worked on. HCP allows the user to secure and unsecure the clamp with ease ensuring easy replacement of worn hoses or replacement of the clamp itself.
These pliers are most commonly used in the automotive industry, however any machinery with hoses that has clamps, can be a good candidate for hose clamp pliers. They can be used to secure and unsecure the clamps to change out hoses or full replacement of bad clamps.
