Our 1/4" hydraulic hose clamp and joining barb is a temporary repair for 1/4" inch hydraulic hose. The repair kit can be used in 2 ways:
As a Patch
The clamp can be used as a patch for simple repairs. You place the clamps over the leakage in the hose, making sure the hole is placed centre of the clamp and then tighten the bolts. You're ready to go. Use as a patch has its limitations and best suits pressures under 2000 psi, small holes, where the hose is in relatively good condition.
As a joiner
Using the clamp as a joiner requires the use of the joining barb that comes in the kit, which means the hose has to be cut. The advantages of using as a joiner are that condition isn't important and can be used at pressures up to 6000 psi.
