Not too easy to describe, but this is one of those 'why didn't I think of that?' devices. It allows you to easily and reliably make temporary (or permanent) replacements for hose clamps (Jubilee clips) or similar parts, by tensioning a lengths of wire wrapped around the joint, and then securing the ends easily and neatly. Each tool comes with a small roll of stainless steel wire (and an instruction leaflet) but you can use any suitable wire which comes to hand. I have a small roll of stainless MIG wire to use with it which is strong enough, but very 'springy' and so not too easy to handle - a roll of stainless lockwire would probably be much more suitable.
No point in writing lots about this great little tool, a glance around the websites listed below will tell you all you need to know. Suffice to say that while it looks like something you might buy from the shopping channel on the haunted fishtank, it does its job simply and easily and I regard it as money well spent. Definitely one for the 'in car' toolbox.

ASA Member Product Reviews by Sailing Instructor Rafael Fernandez
I was very pleased to be asked by the ASA to evaluate a rigging tool that I had not ever seen before. I work part time in a boat yard, when I am not at my regular job as an architect/mechanical engineer.
I have my own boat and have been teaching as an ASA certified sailing instructor for over 15 years, so I have been a sailor and a ?handy? man for a long time. I am always tinkering with engines and equipment, but had never seen the tool, ClampTite.
ClampTite is a clamp-making tool approximately five and a half inches long. It is precision machined from stainless steel and is able to create a full 360-degree seal using stainless steel safety wire (12-30 gauge). I see a couple of advantages over the standard SS clamps. One, while we stock a variety of sizes of clamps to fit most size hoses at the yard, it is difficult to have every size clamp in stock on your boat that would fit any situation or problem. Two, it would save space by only having this tool and a small roll of stainless steel wire.
It takes a couple of steps to make the clamp. I showed to several boat owners. The individuals who were used doing their own rigging had no problems figuring out the instructions. However, I do suggest that you practice with the instrument ? before it is needed!
This tool is useful in all sorts of situations. It could be used to attach a hose to a bilge pump, attach a cleat to a stanchion or used to fix a leaky hose. Because of the mechanical design, it is very easy to tighten the clamp using only finger pressure. I like it! ASA said that I could keep the ClampTite as a thank you for my time and input. However, I have a request. I want a second one for my MGB (those of you who have owned an English sports car know why).
