Topic tags/keywords: clamp

I bought some new pony pipe clamps and inside the package,along with the clamp is a small coil. It looks like it would go on the pipe but it does not mention it on the package and I can’t figure out where it belongs. I put the clamps together without it and some ot the clamps don’t hold well. I also noticed the metal of the pipes seems softer than the older pipe clamps I have. I purchased both the pipe and clamp at Home Depot,

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

aha, that coils is used to protect the thread at the other end of the black pipe.

So if you need to extend your pipe clamp you just get a 3/4” black steel nipple and thread the extension pipe onto the first one. First removing the Thread protector and the slider of course.

Hope this helps….

it is a thread cover for a double theaded pipe ,
to keep the slider from coming of ,
and to protect the threads on that end .
you want to use black iron pipe ,
as it is harder than galvinized pipe ,
the galv. gets peeled off ,
and makes it hard to slide the foot .
if you get some threaded couplers , you can put your pipes toghether and make
clamps as long as you got pipe for .
just hand tight is good .

Very helpful, indeed! I was trying to figure out if it was suppose to go inside the clamp assembly where the spring is.
