It doesn't work in all situations because some clamps are located where you have very limited working room, but where you can get the Clamptite tool in position, it seems you you can make a clamp that will certainly outlast the hose its attached to. 316 stainless, even pressure all around, any size you want, works on everything from water lines to high pressure hydraulic - lots of advantages, with the primary disadvantage that it takes 5 times longer to put it on and you need an arc of working room to make it all happen.

Would you damage the hose when you tried to remove the wire clamp?

No, you just clip it with a pair of wire cutters, and it's off.

It works fine, ask any plumber anywhere with cast iron experience. It is sized for 5/16" nuts(industry standard) and 60 inch pounds torque.

There is another one for a different style called "Husky Bands"
(trade name) that accommodates 3/8" nuts and is set at 70 inch pounds IIRC.

They ratchet and have a distinctive click when value is reached. They are size specific so you can not change sockets.

Engine manufacturers will have torque values for most on-engine clamps in their service manuals.

Where it works, it works well. I've had one for the past 5-6 years.
