Plumbing hard lines, I need clips

I have my benders, flaring tools, unions, other hardware and have made my first few brake and transmission cooler lines. Not bad,, I think this may work. For days I've been looking for clips to route these lines. The factory uses little all metal clips and I found some nylon clips at a local hardware store but they are all the wrong size plus I don't like Nylon...

Does anyone here know of any supplier who can get me A: the right sizes and B good sturdy metal clips to make a nice neat job of this?

Somebody has to make these things...

I've seen them in Home Depot's, around the electrical section, where cable ties and miscellaneous electrical hardware is. Summit or Jeg's would also have them.

I used similiar clips for my brake, fuel and air lines. I got them in packages of 8 or so at my local Napa Auto Parts, a stocking item.

Summit has them in all sizes. Also, the exact package you show in the picture is available at Sears Hardware stores, 2 to a bag. Summit's are cheaper and come about 6-12 in a bag depending on size.

Thanks, what I needed was "Adel" clamps. I did a search and found the exact sizes that I needed to make a neat job.

I've been using regular steel line, 3/16" and 5/16", that I have found easy to double flare and easy to bend/route for this first timer. Can't see the need for stainless and the pain it is to work with. I got all the stuff I needed (except the Adel Clamps) from a guy in Bradford PA that goes by "Performance Tools".

As I said, I've found the plumbing project easy so far with the application of some common sense. I just hope when it's all together it won't leak all over the place. That'll be the real test.
