Clamps, what do you use?

I am wondering what most people are using for clamps, and how they are holding up.

My kit came with worm gear style clamps. They are all holding great at 8psi except one. I have cleaned the pipe and coupler and even replaced the clamp. It still pops off , so I am going to use a t-bolt on that pipe. Hopefully nothing else pops off.

Is anyone using worm gear clamps and having pop off issues?

I use worm gear type clamps, but the ends of all my pipes are bead rolled so I really don't have to worry about the couplers popping off. T-bolt style clamps should help out your issue though. You can tighten them down a little more without fear of stripping or breaking them.

I have quite a few of the T-bolt style laying around if you need one. I just need the pipe diameter. I save all of them that are on the turbo tubing on Power Strokes that are turned in for warranty.
