V-Band Clamp Sizing Information: Our V-Band Clamp sizing is in reference to the intended matching tube size diameter, not the clamping range of the clamp itself. This specific V-Band Clamp is intended to be used with 4.500" ID V-Band Flanges (matching tube size: 4.500" OD) and will accept V-Band Flanges with an overall OD of 5.070".

Ace Race Parts 304 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.

NOTE: Our 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.
Disclaimer: Our 4-1/2-inch V-Band clamps are supplied with a 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 4.5" 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 8mm-1.5.
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.
