Good HD clamp

What can you really say about a clamp. It worked just fine and seemed strong enough to hold tight.

Comments about Nickson 2-1/2" Heavy-Duty Muffler Clamp:

I used these clamps when I replaced the muffler on my truck. The exhaust pipe measured 2 1/2" in diameter so I decided to use a 2 1/2" camp, which worked perfectly.

            can this be used to cover small hole in muffler pipe?

              A:

              Great question Myra, I will be happy to help. Yes, if the hole is small enough I don't see why it would not work for you. I would also try a product such as our Nickson exhaust repair kit (Part No.540050) or similar like products. Exhaust repair kits may come with clamps already in the package.
