Before I "learn" how this clamp works by breaking it...
Anyone know how this clamp is supposed to work? It goes on the hose that will connect to a ball lock liquid connector.

You put it over the hose and the hose over the barb , ( use hot water and soak tip of hose to slide it on ) use tool for the clamps to tighten it . There better for hoses be Ouse they apply pressure from all sides .
It requires a special tool meant for Oetiker clamps.
Yep just put it on the hose and pinch the nipple on the clamp with a pair of nippers.
Do I really need a special tool to secure it?
Thanks Bobby I found the tool on Amazon.
BeverageFactory.com buyer beware I guess. They shipped me a disassembled picnic ball lock hose and forgot 1/2 the parts.
Then they ship replacement parts and I need to buy yet another tool which costs more then the assembly...
What a bunch of clowns.
Thanks everyone for the help!
I found a couple of nice photos that show how to install these so I thought I would share.http://www.kegkits.com/Merchant2/mer...ry_Code=OCLAMP
Right - that's the fancy schmancy tool way
You can also use a pair of side cutters almost as easily...
