Ace Race Parts 304 3" Stainless Steel V-Band Clamps are manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified facility and feature a "Standard" T-Bolt style clamping mechanism to ensure a tight, leak-free seal. V-Band Clamps and V-Band Flanges are an affordable and durable type of clamping system that is suited for high performance automotive, diesel, marine and industrial applications.
Our 3" Stainless Steel V-Band Clamps are supplied with two types of nuts: a Zinc plated metal lock nut and a 304 Stainless non-locking hex nut. The Zinc plated lock nut ensures that your clamp stays locked in placed during harsh conditions on the street, strip, and track. The 304 Stainless non-locking hex nut is provided so that the clamp can be used in mock-up, fitment, and pre-installation situations where a lock nut is not required. The non-locking hex nut will not lock in place during use to ensure that the threaded portion of the clamp will not be damaged.
Our CP1 Titanium V-Band Clamps offer a high quality clamping experience and is ensured to fit perfectly with our Titanium Tube, Titanium Mandrel Bends, Titanium V-Band Flanges, Titanium Pie Cuts, Titanium Flex Bellows, Titanium Bungs, and Titanium Flanges. For the best welding experience, choose Ace Race Parts brand Titanium Welding Wire, available in both 0.039" (1mm) and 0.063" (1.6mm) diameters.Note: This 3.000" Stainless Steel V-Band Clamp is ONLY compatible with V-Band Flange SKUs 72040 and 72056 and is NOT compatible with Ace Race Parts' brand of Stainless Steel V-Band Flanges due to dimensional differences.

Please note: Our 3-inch V-Band clamps are supplied with a metal lock nut and a standard non-locking hex nut. The metal lock nut is a locking-style nut and is not intended to be used during mock-up. Attempting to thread, remove, and re-thread the lock nut may cause damage to the "T-Bolt" section of the clamp. In some cases, excessive force can damage and/or break the "T-Bolt" section of the 3" exhaust v-band clamp. If you intend to use our clamps during the mock-up process please use a non-locking hex nut.
Ace Race Parts is not responsible for damage caused to our clamps due to the use of the locking-style nut during mock-up or removal. The thread pitch of our hex nuts, lock nuts and the threaded portion of the "T-Bolt" section of the clamp is 5/16"-24 (fine thread).
Note: The photo of the three types of nuts includes a nylon lock nut. This type of nut is not always supplied with our v-bands. The two main types of nuts supplied with each v-band assembly or clamp is the metal non-locking hex nut (finish hex nut) and the metal lock nut. If you would like a nylon lock nut to be supplied with your order please contact us.
