Gary1 those crimp style clamps are called Oetecher clamps after the designer of course....
The line itself...what i have done in the past that works fairly well is to use an anvil from the double flare kit, you know the 2 piece bar looking thing that hold the metal tube, and I clamp the plastic in that, keeping short, putting the fitting in a vise, giving a good handle for the plastic that allows me to grunt that baby on there. Sometimes I heat the metal barb fitting a tad (not too much) to help soften the tubing as it slides on.
