How to Protect Your
Why protect your hydraulic hose anyway? To save
time and money!
If you have a hose you are constantly replacing
due to abrasion or wear issues - it makes sense to prolong the life of that
We offer three ways to protect your hose.
1) Spring Guard - spring guard is added before
your hose is made as it will NOT properly fit over an assembled hose. (As with
anything, you CAN make it work but we have yet to find a reasonable solution to
that so make sure the spring guard goes on when the hose is made.)
Note: Order the size to match your hose -
i.e. 1/4" spring guard will fit 1/4" hose.
2) Hose Sleeve - again hose sleeve is best put
on when the hose is made, however it IS easier to add to a hose that is already
made.You'll need to make sure the sleeve is large enough to fit over the hose
end. You can also protect two
or more hoses if the sleeve is large enough. Secure the hose sleeve with zip
ties or band clamps.
Hose Wrap - can be added either before or after the hose is made! Hose Wrap
also offers protection against Ultraviolet (UV) light and abrasion. It also
provides protection against crushing. You can bundle two or more hoses with it.
Note this wrap can protect many things besides hydraulic hose! You are only
limited by your imagination. Hose Wrap comes in two grades - Light Duty or
