Constant Tension Clamps

Constant tension clips, also known as constant torque clips or spring-loaded clips, are specialized fasteners designed to provide a consistent and uniform level of tension or torque on a clamped object. These clips are engineered to maintain a constant pressure or force, even when subjected to thermal expansion, contraction, or vibrations.

Industrial Hoses

Industrial hoses are robust, flexible tubes designed to convey fluids, gases, or granular materials under varying conditions and pressures. These hoses are employed across a diverse range of industries, including petrochemical, food processing, construction, and manufacturing, to name just a few. Made from materials such as rubber, PVC, or metal, they can be reinforced with layers of textile, wire, or other synthetic materials for added strength and durability.

Hose Couplings & Fittings

Hose couplings and fittings are essential components used to connect, adapt, or control the flow of fluid in various hose assemblies. These components can be found in a myriad of applications such as water supply, hydraulic systems, and industrial processes. Couplings come in different shapes, materials, and sizes - ranging from simple clamps and sleeves to more complex quick-connect or threaded fixtures.

Constant tension clips, or constant tension clamps, are designed to maintain a consistent clamping force on an object even as it expands or contracts. These are often used in applications involving hoses, pipes, or cables that may experience fluctuations in size due to temperature changes, vibrations, or other environmental factors. Here are some of the benefits of using constant tension clips:

Improved Reliability

  1. Constant Force: As the name implies, these clips maintain a constant clamping force, ensuring a reliable and secure connection even as the clamped object changes size.

  2. Reduced Risk of Leaks: The constant clamping force helps to minimize the risk of leaks in fluid systems, making these clips ideal for applications involving liquids or gases.

  3. Vibration Resistance: The constant tension mechanism often provides excellent resistance to vibration, reducing the risk of the clip loosening over time.


  1. Wide Range of Applications: These clips can be used in various applications, including automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, and HVAC systems, among others.

  2. Compatibility with Different Materials: Constant tension clips can be used on a variety of materials, such as rubber hoses, plastic pipes, or metal tubes.

  3. Variety of Sizes and Designs: These clips come in various sizes and designs to fit a range of diameters and application requirements.


  1. Corrosion Resistance: Many constant tension clips are made from materials like stainless steel that offer excellent resistance to corrosion, especially important in harsh or high-moisture environments.

  2. High Mechanical Strength: These clips are typically designed to withstand high mechanical stresses, making them durable and long-lasting.

Ease of Use

  1. Ease of Installation: Many designs allow for quick and straightforward installation, often without the need for specialized tools.

  2. Adjustability: Some constant tension clips offer a degree of adjustability, enabling a better fit and easier alignment.

Operational Efficiency

  1. Low Maintenance: Once installed, these clips generally require little to no maintenance, contributing to lower operational costs.

  2. Temperature Resistance: Given their ability to maintain tension across a range of temperatures, these clips are ideal for applications that experience temperature fluctuations.


  1. Cost Savings: Though the initial cost might be higher compared to regular clips, their durability and low maintenance needs often make them more cost-effective in the long run.

  2. Reduced Downtime: The reliability and low maintenance of these clips can result in reduced downtime for maintenance or replacements, leading to increased operational efficiency.

  3. Efficient Material Use: Since they adapt to material expansion and contraction, you often don't need to over-tighten them, thus reducing the wear and tear on the materials being clamped.


  1. Reduced Risk of Failure: Their ability to maintain a constant force reduces the risk of failure, which is particularly important in safety-critical applications.

Given their various advantages, it's important to select the right constant tension clip for your specific application, considering factors like material compatibility, operating conditions, and required clamping force. Always consult with experts or follow manufacturer guidelines for proper selection and installation.
