If you put a muffler clamp on there you'll lock up the joint and defeat the purpose of the slip joint to allow for engine expansion when hot.
Weld it or clamp it and the headers will possibly crack from the stress.

My B&B's leaked a tiny amount at the slip joint too. I didn't notice it unless I was under the car while it was running.
I squeeze some high temp red silicone in between the double walls of the slip joint before installing the headers to stop the leak.

I've seen inexpensive Schnell headers and they had a slip joint but it was not double wall.
