    Hey all i was wondering what are the best clips to use for securing hoses on to the barbs of rectus style fittings and other barbed fittings ect. Ive just got a new pump that seems to be higher pressure than my last pump and im getting various little sprays of water leaking out of the connection ends of my microbore 6mm hose, where im using the PINCER type O clips.
    Does anyone use different clips like mabee miniture jubilees or something?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    The o clips are the best imo
    Stick a couple of turns of ptfe tape round the barb first..that should seal it

    Mini jubilee clips work for me, plus you can re use them unlike 'O' clips

    Those clips are brilliant. Technically they are not mini jubilee clips, but fuel line clips, which are supposed to be lower presure. I tried real small size jubilee clips to my pump but they leaked. When i tried these (the one Tuffers mentions) they really did a good job. I got them from my local agricultural place for pence. They tighten so much better that jubilee clips on small hose.

    I just find the little jubilee just don't tighten round, but those fuel line ones are great, not need for any sealant.
