GatorClips Oil Cooler Mounting Clamps
GatorClips are the best, most secure way to mount an oil cooler to bracketry or flat panels. GatorClips grip the cooler at its strongest point, the core tubes, and provide a secure, durable connection to your vehicle.
Totally reusable – A stack of three GatorClips clamp the cooler securely and create a 1/2" clearance between the cooler and any mounting surface, solidly locking it in position and allowing additional airflow over all surfaces.
Set of 6 recommended for 4-pass coolers (2-point mount); set of 9 recommended for 6-pass coolers (3-point mount). GatorClips are supplied with some coolers, and are available as an accessory kit (below) to fit any Flex-a-lite tube & tin oil cooler.
