Trying to identify a clamp

OK, I will try to describe this as best I can. It is a two piece clamp made of metal which clamps on tube or pipe, so a round hole in center typically with two bolts which screw the two halves together. If you look at the clamp from the side it has a square outside shape with the hole in the center for the pipe or tube. The part which clamps around the tube/pipe is smooth and not serrated. Hopefully my description is good enough. Oh and if you know where to buy them that would be helpful as well.

Thanks!

It seems that you are looking for shaft collars. Lots of variety to choose from.

What size tube are you wanting to clamp? 1/2" or 3", etc? Also, do you want it to be metal or reinforced plastic? A grainger or McMaster catalog might have some choices, but there are also items made for mounting antennas that can work depending on your budget and what size you need.

That's the concept but they need to be square rather than round on the exterior. I will be bolting flat stock on the flat edge that's why I need the square one's.

I don't have the exact measurement but somewhere around 1 1/4" hole in center. I am looking for the metal ones.

I can't think of the proper name either.

Here is one place that calls them "Super Duty Saddle Clamps":



Unfortunately they only have 2" listed as being the smallest:

And they are also somewhat spendy. If you can live with plastic, they make a "Resin Support Block" in a ton of sizes:


And the 1 1/4" ones are less than $5:

Hope that helps you!

Oh also I had the thought that if you needed a quick and half assed version of this you could just purchase 2 muffler/exhaust clamps and use the base plates:

Something like this? Obviously these are not exact but close?
