You can just cut off the banded hoseclamp and replace with one you can
tighten.  If the hose ends are really bad, you can trim off a 1/4 to 1/2
inch before installing the hoseclamps.  I used all stainless on mine when I
redid all the hoses in my engine compartment because the OEM stainless
clamps with steel screws had rusted so badly in some cases I had to break
the strap to get them off.
