Anyone know an alternative to PCG fuel line clamps?

On CIS-equipped cars, there are several "vacuum hoses" with 22mm O.D. / 18mm I.D. Most of the vac hoses use "fuel injection" style screw-and-nut clamps, like the one pictured below:


This style of clamp is readily available on the aftermarket, most notably, the high quality zinc-plated and stainless steel versions available from ABA/Norma. The ABA clamps are a fraction of the cost of PCG parts, usually at 1/3rd or more cheaper, which adds up when you're replacing every single hose and clamp in the engine bay!

The problem I'm having is I can only find these up to 18mm diameter. Does anyone know of a source that carries larger sizes in this style?

Thanks for the idea. I had considered ear clamps, but unfortunately, they end up being expensive AND inconvenient because you have to destroy them anytime something needs to be moved, changed, disassembled, etc.

Just bought a 125-pc 2-ear clip assortment (Swordfish brand) from Amazon for less than $10 and some brands are even less. I paid about $0.35 each depending on the size at my local hydraulic shop plus have to drive several miles to buy a couple of these clamps. I end up spending more on fuel than the cost of the clamps. So I decided to buy an assortment and save me time and money. BTW, I am cheap and frugal too.
