A Better Way to Connect Mufflers & Tubing – With a Better Fit That Minimizes Noise & Exhaust Leaks
SealClamp™ exhaust clamps are easy to install for sealing muffler inlets, outlets, elbow joints, flex pipes and other system connections. Available in two styles - stepped preformed and flat - they minimize noise and exhaust gas leaks.
Easy to install - no welding needed
Fewer parts to assemble
Improved joint seal
Preformed and flat styles available
Available in stainless finish for all sizes – aluminized finish for some sizes
Minimizes noise and exhaust gas leaks
When installed, the wide band conforms to shape of straight or flex pipe, seals without distorting pipe
Muffler inlets and outlets

Position the SealClamp over the smallest tube. Larger end of the clamp must be on the overlapping tube or flex
Locate the step of the clamp to the overlapping tube at the joint
Using the v-groove as a visual guide, alternately tighten bolts until the groove is approximately half closed (~50 ft. lbs). Do not exceed 70 ft. lbs torque as clamp damage may occur.
Installing the Flat Band SealClamp™
Position 1/3 to 1/2 way onto the larger diameter tube or to completely cover slots
Assemble bolts between clamp bolts and tubes
For all models, tighten by alternating the wrench between fasteners several times to uniformly take up the slack, beginning with the large diameter side of the connection. Tighten the nuts for stainless clamps as illustrated. Tighten alternately until the gasket is fully compressed and the mating bars’ surfaces are fully touching. The grade 8 bolts and nuts are rated to 100 ft. lbs. of torque. For best results use an impact wrench.
Important Application Notes (Flat Band)
Use either 14 mm / 9/16 inch hex wrench
Grease the clamps and the joint area before installing
Do not use for exhaust system mounting support
Do not use for exhaust manifold or turbocharger connections
Do not reuse the clamps
Do not use as a butt joint clamp–use for overlap connections only
