A hose clip, also called a hose clamp or a hose lock, is a type of mechanical device specifically designed to attach or seal a hose over a fitting, like a barb or a spigot. It is used to secure the position of the hose over the fitting, preventing fluids to leak and ensuring a stabilised connection.
Jubilee kits technically refer to hose clips specifically made by the L Robinson and Company, but now is more commonly used as a generic name for hose clips, even those made by other brands.
How do hose clip and jubilee kits work
Hose clips and jubilee kits are simple to use. They are usually placed on the outer side of the hose, particularly at the point where the hose joins the outlet. Hose clips can either be tightened manually or use a hex key or screwdriver to ensure that there’s no risk of leaks or accidental detachment of the hose under high pressure. Other alternative tightening methods can also be used.
