/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif Just in case there is someone left on the planet who may not know this.......you CAN hook hose clamps end-to-end to make a clamp big enough to do what needs to be done. MOST clamps will fit up and thread OK, even if they are different brands. In fact, when you are clamping something big, it's an ADVANTAGE to have two or even three places to tighten instead of just one./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

Oh it is too bad that youth is wasted on the young, Hahaha.
You can use a piece of radiator hose cut into about 1" length and slit opened. Then place that around what you want to clamp, and place the clamp over that. It works very well, since the hose rubber is very dense and will allow a very tight compression. This is also a good way to protect an object your clamping around.
Im hoping you were referring to CJ Dave when you referred to "grandfather", I might be getting old, but im still young enough to straighten out most uppedy youths(or is that yooots).
Hahahaha.

Ive got one for you guys...how about if you break your little 1/4" ratchet or if you do not have the correct amount of ratcheting room...use a medium headed phillips screw driver! It fits right into the 1/4" hole in the extentions and the sockets. It is also good for tightening oil pan gaskets and other gaskets, because of the rough size and diameter of the handle comes out to a good tightening torque.
