Be Knowledgeable and know the difference between stainless steel clamps vs ALL (100%) Stainless steel clamps:
Lots of clamps out there that are marketed as “stainless” unfortunately use only stainless steel bands, but not stainless steel housing or screws. These type of clamps will result in RUSTY SCREWS as shown above.
Your are better off with the ALL stainless steel clamps (sold through Highway Stars) because the housing and screw is also stainless and will not rust out.
“All stainless - 100% stainless” is the classification you’ll want because the entire clamp is STAINLESS STEEL.
