Help me identify this part.


I am trying to identify the straps in this picture.

http://images.swogger.net/pyro/Jun19%2322.JPG

It's for a prop I am building and I need to know what the technical term for something like that is, or where I can get some. To clarify, it is the straps holding the tank to the tube (Not sure what it is, just want those straps LOL!)

Help!

Looks like some sort of worm drive clamp, but I haven't seen one exactly like that before.

What exactly do you have to do? There may be other solutions!

Is that some sort of flame thrower? Looks like the brackets behind the straps are screwed into the propane tank? The clamps almost look like worm drive/hose clamps but you can't see any slots for adjustments. Also if you look where they wrap around the tank they are pretty thick, not like normal clamp. Maybe the screws are a clamp of some kind that just holds the bands on?

Some more info about what you are looking to do would help

Those look like metal shipping-bands/packing-bands with band clamps.

Thanks for the replies. I am trying to bind a few tubes together for a prop I am makeing, but I don't want to use industrial zip ties, I want a metallic look like the one in the picture.

I looked up metal shipping bands but I still can't seem to find exactly what's in the picture.

They must exist!

We see them all the time on lumber shipments we get from the various lumber yards. They use them to bundle the deliveries.

Don't know it that helps you much?

It is a commercial product that comes on a large roll and is applied by machine. I don't think you will find it as single piece items.

I've use metal banding at work but our clamps are crimp on, these look like they have a screw adjustment. Maybe they exist somewhere, i don't have my grainger or fastenal book with me but they might have something like that.

Here is a link to grainger with some banding and clamps that might work http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/productIndex.shtml

Telephone cables are sometimes pressurized in case a leak occurs! At intervals along the cable are pressure contactors. If a leak occurs in a certain section the contactor closes and alerts the monitor center of a problem. A resistance measurement can be made to the closed contactor, and the location of the fault will be known. What we see in the photo is the nitrogen filled tank, strapped to a phone cable using a worm drive strap! Worm drive straps are available in various sizes. If I wanted a very long one, I would daisy change several larger ones in series!
