Hi,
I want to mount a 100mm ag pipe to the rear of my Jayco. Does anyone know where (in Sydney) I can get hose clips of about 200mm diameter? Are there any other bright mounting ideas?

If you are using clamps like those on a radiator hose, you can screw one end of a clamp into the next and so on to make a clamp as long as you like.

Hi Penguin,
Some of the cheap stores sell hose clamps that you make yourself. They consist of several screw type clamps and a length of metal strip with the required grooves cut into it. You simply measure the diameter of the pipe etc cut off the metal strip place in screw type clamp and Bobs ya uncle. I have seen them in Crazy Clints and GO LO stores. Regards,Dodg

Hi Penguin:

I have been searchhing for the same sort of clamps .. long radiator hose type clamps .. and have been advised today that you can buy them from "farm supply" type places. Have not yet tested the "theory", but will be heading off to the local farm supply shop over the next few days.

I am not trying to tell you how to suck eggs, but may I also suggest that you make sure the ends are well glued on (I used the blue glue used by plumbers), as i saw an incident recently where a driver braked hard, his screw cap assembly gave way and he had about 7 deadly looking "spears go all over the vehicle in front. Minor damage, but could have been worse. He thought just "tapping" the ends on was enough. Thankfully for me he did not have a vehicle that could accelerate as well as it braked or I may have worn them earlier.

Safe travels.
Jack

Thanks Jack,

Ouch!! I used the red primer first and then the blue glue. I trust that the ends of the pipe are going nowhere. :-)

Hi Penguin:
Yep, that'll do the trick. But you will be surprised at how many don't fix/attach them properly or securely.
Safe travels,
Jack

Throw in a few pop-rivets too, just remember to seal them with silastic or something, if a water-tight fitting is required.Smile, you're on ExplorOz
