Nelson Hose Repair Clamps – TSP Item of the Day — 6 Comments

  1. Regarding the ADD ON SHIPPING for the hose clamp, for PRIME Members, its NOT $49. Here is the quote from the amazon site for me as a prime member on the hose clamp. This item is available because of the Add-on program
    The Add-on program allows Amazon to offer thousands of low-priced items that would be cost-prohibitive to ship on their own. These items ship with qualifying orders over $25

  2. I’ve used GatorHyde 100 foot hoses in rough duty for several years, and am very impressed with them.

    If it matters to you, they are also drinking water safe.

    Not cheap, but the best hoses i’ve yet used.

    (And if it matters, I am not in any way affiliated with them, I just really like them.)

  3. These hose end repair kits are also available at WalMart during the summer while they carry hoses.

    I use these A LOT. I probably have 10 matching sets (10 female and 10 male) as I get older hoses donated to me all the time and all that is wrong with them is one end being bad, but I almost always replace both ends.

    Also, if you cut a long hose by accident, don’t use a patch kit, use a set of these and you now have 2 short hoses. I have lots of different length hoses and I am almost always able to combine several of these for the perfect fit for a watering project, and if I want to add a valved Wye so I can run two sprinklers or a sprinkler and/or a soaker hose alternatingly it is easy to tap into one of the joints.
