Gates® Powergrip® SB Clamp

Designed for your hose assemblies, Gates® PowerGrip® SB Clamps are maintenance-free, durable hose clamps that retain dynamic tension for any shape of hose and housing, even on out-of-round fittings and applications, to reliably stop leaks without the need for re-tightening. The environmentally-friendly PowerGrip® SB clamps are designed for a secure, tight fit in extreme operating temperatures to eliminate antifreeze leaks and groundwater contamination.
Special Features:

  • Made of heat-sensitive thermoplastic with a memory to prevent over- or under-tightening.
  • Conform to any shape of hose and housing, even out-of-round fittings.
  • Wider sealing area entraps connector bead.
  • Can be used with all brands of silicone hose.
  • Temperature Range: -40°C to +150°C (-40°F to +302°F)
  • Installation: Just Add Heat! Easily installed with an ordinary heat gun

How To Install A Gates® Powergrip® SB Hose Clamp

STEP ONE: Be sure vehicle engine is turned off and has cooled down.

STEP TWO: Drain Coolant & then remove old hoses.

STEP THREE: Clean metal stems with wire brush.

STEP FOUR: Remove clamp from brace by squeezing, then folding the brace in half and removing it.

STEP FIVE: Place clamps over each end of new hose & position over fitting.

STEP SIX: Slide clamp over top of fitting bead. Be sure to position so the print on clamp is facing up and in full view.

STEP SEVEN: Apply heat as follows:

  • Use standard heat gun with settings on high.
  • Do not use open flame to apply heat.
  • Do not apply heat to one spot too long. Move gun continuously.
  • Continue until shrinking is complete.

STEP EIGHT: Check connections to be sure a good seal was made by trying to turn the hose.

STEP NINE: Replace Coolant

STEP TEN: Start engine and check for leaks. If leaks appear, apply more heat to clamp.

Maintenance-Free Hose Connection

This clamp never needs re-tightening and it is resistant to all automotive fluids.

How To Remove A Powergrip® SB Hose Clamp

Gates® offers a Clamp Removal Tool (Part# 91215) specifically engineered for the job. This simple, one-step tool easily slices off any size Gates® Powergrip® Hose Clamp from hoses.
