Default Where can I get black clamps for barbed fittings?

As the title states.....


And is it safe to do no clamps on barbed fittings?

zip ties is a good cheap idea. I think I'll go that route unless the ones at direct canada are cheap enough. Unfortunately I cannot connect to their site right now.

Those aren't what I was talking about but I do find them sexy as hell. Where can they be purchased? I am obv trying to do this without spending much otherwise I would just go compression.

Thanks for the heads up. I need all black because I want a super nice build and hope to look as good as lowfats :)

I went ahead and ordered all of my fittings already today. I ended up going with barbed because the angled compression fittings are quite pricey and I got a few of them. And with those little clamps it still worked out to being a good deal cheaper.
