These 304 stainless steel V-band clamps are designed for clamping exhaust components together.
Please Note: By popular request, these clamps have been renumbered. These used to be our 2.5" clamps and were numbered based on outer diameter of the rings they were built to clamp. As of September 29 2008 all V-band clamps and rings will be numbered based on the inner diameter of the pipe. We agree that it would have been better to number them this way in the first place. Confused? just look at the Actual Clamping Ability below.
Designed as a replacement for old or inferior clamps, they include only what is shown, not the rings (also known as pipe ends).
Unlike some other V-band clamps available, these are not marked with any company logo. The only marking is a small, convenient number telling you the clamping ability (in MM).
V-band assemblies are the most versatile and reliable way to connect your exhaust components. With V-band assemblies, you achieve the flexibility to install and swap your exhaust parts easily while maintaining the sturdiness and leak-proofing of a welded exhaust.
Actual clamping ability is 2.48" to 2.80". V-Band clamping ability refers to the outer diameter of the ring of the V-band clamp ring. The low number here can be 0.01" to 0.05" lower than the actual outer diameter of the V-Band clamp ring you are clamping. These match the sizes on our V-band clamp rings perfectly.
