INSTANT REPAIR SYSTEM FOR HYDRAULIC HOSES
HOSEPATCH FIXES A LEAKING HOSE IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES!
WORKS AS A LOW PRESSURE PATCH, OR AS A JOINER, ENABLING OPERATION TO CONTINUE AND AVOIDING COSTLY DOWNTIME
Hosepatch in-field hydraulic hose repair clamps have made hydraulic hose repair as simple as possible, with no removal of the hose from the machine. You can be up and running in as little 10 minutes. The clamps can be used on most types of hydraulic hose eliminating the need to have different fittings for different types of hose. The Hosepatch Kit is available to buy direct from A&S International in the UK and elsewhere in the world through our International distributors.
Hosepatch hydraulic hose repair clamps can be used in two different ways.
AS A PATCH
The clamp can be used as a patch for simple repairs. You place the clamps over the leakage in the hose, making sure the hole is placed centre of the clamp and then tighten the bolts. You’re ready to go. Use as a patch has its limitations and best suits pressures under 2000 psi, small holes, where the hose is in relatively good condition.
AS A JOINER
Using the clamp as a joiner requires the use of the joining barb that comes in the kit, which means the hose has to be cut. The advantages of using as a joiner are that condition isn’t important and can be used at pressures up to 6000 psi.
Hose Patch clamps are designed as a temporary repair and are completely reusable. It is best to replace the damaged hose as soon as possible and return the clamp to the kit for next use.

Benefits of Hosepatch
- Reduce down time
- Quick and Easy to use
- Excellent for remote areas or when replacements are not available
- Completely reusable
- The clamp does not rust
- Fits most types of hoses
This demonstration video shows how quickly and easily the Hosepatch repair clamp can be applied in the field.
HOSEPATCH HAS BEEN DESIGN ENGINEERED TO PERFORM
Because it is a clamp and not a fixed fitting it can be used on a variety of hose types with different wall thicknesses. This offers a significant advantage over in field (reusable) fittings that are hose specific. As a clamp Hosepatch can be used on 2sn, R12 and R15 hoses. And as a joiner it can be used on all the above hoses, passing all testing standards. Internal sizing was based off 2sn crimp shells
The lateral rib allows the clamp to be used as a patch on certain hoses while the internal ribs are wider and rounded so they aren’t sharp like a crimp fitting. This allows the clamp to seal on the outside rubber of the hose without cutting when used as a patch, however it will penetrate into the wire braid (spiral) when it is used as a joiner and has the internal support of the barb. This has other benefits as it means they can be used on hoses such as R7 Thermoplastic because of the thinner wall, where it clamps well but without cutting the hose.
The clamps are made from 316 stainless steel which has been specifically selected for its hardness to prevent bending when the clamp is tightened. Its anti-corrosion properties also make it suitable to be used in the marine industry.
Anodized grade 8.8 M8 bolts with a flat base are used in order to avoid using a washer (for easier install).
The use of grade 8.8 with the 316 stainless steel is intended to:
- Eliminate thread binding
- Make it easier to remove a broken bolt, and any thread striping should be restricted to the bolt and not the clamp.
- The bolts were designed to be the first point of failure if overtightened, as it is cheaper and easier to replace the bolts than the clamp.

1000’s OF SUCCESSFUL APPLICATIONS IN THE FIELD
BEST IDEA EVER
We have used these a few times when we cant get hoses made and they all work good.
I’m placing a order for another set for use on our construction equipment.
Good to use quick and easy fix to save downtime. Especially on long hoses that are a big job to remove for repair or replacement. Permanent repair can be done in off season or when time permits
Wow!! These hosepatches have saved so much downtime for our company!
We live remote and every time one of our machines does a hose the down time can be up to a week!
NO More Downtime so worth the costs!
NEED HELP WITH FITTING IDENTIFICATION
With the amount of different hydraulic fittings on the market, identifying them can be a bit confusing, fortunately RYCO have developed an excellent smartphone app for this called Thread ID Mate click on the links below for iPhone, Android or download the thread identification PDF, Thread ID Mate for iPhone Thread ID Mate for Android Thread Identification PDF
