Ermm... £1.51.

Honestly though, I don't know how you buy something and get it shipped over from China for that price. I'm not complaining mind.

Yet that's how it works. Regularly order something for a few bob, never gone wrong. Yeah it might take a month to arrive, but it will arrive.

I bought some a while back. The size adjustment mechanism on mine does not lock quite as positively as I'd like but they're pretty good overall.

i used mine on sat morning ,and they kept releasing the bottling pipe.
i do have a pvc hose that is soft when warm and stiff when cold, and as i cold crash my beer prior to bottling it makes the pipe very difficult to handle,
i have now ordered a silicone tube so hopefully that will solve my issue

I got a couple of these off ebay and found they do not grip the tube tightly enough so i use a similar set up as below but use my original red clip (as pictured in the OP) to hold the solid tube which i have extended with 20cm of extra solid tube and the blue one to keep a nice curve in the pipe a bit like below but higher i hold it in place with a clothes peg.

I think i may buy a stainless steel bulldog clip and clamp the open end of the blue clip so it holds the tube tighter they are only a few pence on ebay.
