Hey Mark,
Do you know anyone who has used them yet? Just curious if one trusts that they heated them up enough to make a good clamp.

There's at least one VMFer using them.

For more info, call McMaster-Carr at 630-782-3800.

I may have to give those a try. They have got to look better than the stainless straps. I bet they'd fit better under the braid covers for people using those.

Take a look at this. Instructions on how to use the clamps from Popular Mechanics. They make them sound like really good stuff.

The McMaster-Carr page also has a link to their installation instructions.

PM does seem to prefer this type of shrink clamp over the alternates. McMaster-Carr also has the hose clamps with a tensioning spring to keep things under pressure even when cold.
