McMaster has them as well, and shipping is wicked fast.

Do you have the part numbers? Also you can get the pliers off of ebay too.

I just order a whole bunch of these things from McMaster Carr. Depending on the OD, Outside Diameter of your tubing, I used McMaster P/N 52545K52 to support my 1/4" line which has an OD of 0.500". Fits perfect!

Measure your tubing then match that to the range specified on McMaster's site. They only have about 50 sizes to choose from.

Good luck!

what makes them function better? I've noticed no difference in seal or quality between hose clamps and oetiker clamps.

The ID of the oetiker clamps is smoother and rounder than hose clamps, which have a flat spot from the screw housing. Screw clamps work fine for most people, though.
