Band type exhaust clamps

I've never used these band type clamps before.
How well do they work as far as sealing and the ability to get the pipes back apart again after removing the clamps?

I was looking at 2 different types.

These:
Dynamax Clamps
And these:

SuperTrapp Clamp

I have never used them clamps before but we use these at work for joining round tubing together http://www.morriscoupling.com/prod1.html we use a lot of 4 bolt clamps and I doubt you would be able to pull the clamps apart with each end of the joined pipes together with 2 4 wheel drive trucks pulling on them. These clamps also have rubber inside of them for sealing purposes.

These style of clamps work excellent, seal good on clean pipe, don't crush or indent the pipe at all, so removal and seperation is super easy. They are the way to go

They look like a super clamp,
but, won't the gasket melt on a tailpipe installation?

Ayuh,... The Morris clamps are for compressed Air, not exhaust...

I've been using the Dynaclamp style for Years...

Thanks guys.
I messed up my original link on the SuperTrapp clamp.

What about this style? It is more narrow as compared to the Dynamax clamp. Which style is better to go with?

SuperTrapp clamp

I've not used the Supertrapp clamp, but it doesn't look wide enough to hold two pipes end-to-end?? Looks more like it is for holding a pipe that is split 4, 6, or 8 ways clamped over another pipe?? Seems like the Supertrapp mufflers have that type of slip fit over a pipe split connection on them??

Thanks, that makes sense. I'll go with the wider Dynamax clamps.
