I use a Sears Craftsman Pop Rivet tool to make wire hose clamps. I use .040 stainless steel wire. You can use mild steel such as electric fence wire, but you have to be careful and not get it too tight or it will break. I have no idea if other brands of Pop Riveters will work or not. I learned this by trial and error, but now make most all of my hose clamps, especially on air lines and sprayer lines..
Sears Craftsman Pop riveter (another brand will probably work)
.040 Stainless steel wire (Harbor Freight)
Cut wire to approximately 15" long.
Fold it in half
Thread ends through loop
Twist the wire evenly to give the pop riveter a better grip on it
