Problem Removing Strange Hose Clamp

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of replacing my AOS and I have run into a few snags. I have encountered a hose clamp that I cannot get off. The clamp runs the entire circumference of the hose. On one end the clamp forms a triangle. It appears that you need to spread the triangle however I am not able too. I have seen references in the past to similar hose clamps. People have mentioned that it is easiest to cut the clamp and install a worm clamp. I realize that cutting it off would be easy however I would prefer to remove it without cutting. Anybody have any idea of how to remove these clamps?

I now have the correct tool to remove these clamps but have used the needle nose type of vise-grips in the past. Best of luck as they can be a real bugger to shift.

wvicary is correct, ifyou don't want to spend money on the tool, just use alot of hand torque and a long pair of needle nose pliers...the long ones give you more leverage.
