What you need to know about exhaust clamps:
U Bolt “Economy” Clamp
The most common type of clamp is the U-bolt or saddle clamp. The most cost effective of all the clamps, people choose this one most often because it does a good job at a low cost.
Band clamps utilize a strong band which is tightened around the joint. Depending on the design, this type of clamp is less prone to leaks, and is a good way to secure parts together without the use of welds.
“Lap-Joint” Band Clamp
Lap-joint clamps are best when cosmetic appearance is important, as well as serviceability of the joint. This would include exhaust tips, mufflers, catback systems, racing exhaust, and show cars. This type of clamp is much easier to separate should a component ever need to be removed or replaced, so if disassembly is important, this clamp would be preferred over band or saddle clamps. This type of clamp does require that the sections being clamped have sufficient lengths of straight pipe leading into it.
“Butt-Joint” Band Clamp
Butt-joint clamps are also a good choice when cosmetic appearance is important. This type of clamp is for connecting two pipes that have the same outside diameter.
Reaction block and forced bar for complete inner circle seal and conforms to the pipe upon installation. This type of clamp does require that the sections being clamped have sufficient lengths of straight pipe leading into it.This clamp will not work properly if installed too closely to a bend.
