CV Boot Band???

I ordered new CV boots from ATVCVBOOTS, they came with new bands and I have no idea how to put these on and secure them. Can someone help me?
Thank you!

    best way is with a band clamp tool,but a pair of needle nose pliers will do the trick if you know how to do it.put them around through the end with it on the boot then catch the end close to the boot,and turn it counter clock wise if you go the way you'd think they go it will not work go counter.then once its tight bend it back over,and tap the tabs down over the clamp.

    Go to a parts house and order the CV band tool. Trust me it will make your life a lot easier. Tool is pretty self explanatory. The latest ones have a cutter built in so you don,t have to mess with trying to cut the band after you have it installed(common cause of nicked boots. The needle nose method will work, it will also expand your vocabulary considerably, and probably cost you a band or two, or a boot until you get the hang of it. Think I gave around 15 bucks for my tool. Just my opinion, hope it helps

    Can you post pictures of the bands? The reason I ask is because the bands on my superatv axles can be removed or installed with needle nose pliers very easily. Theirs a spot where you squeeze the bands and then they just hook together after you have enough pressure on them.

    ive used zipties,  and i actually still do have 2 zipties holding one of my boots on and no problems at all...the yamaha bands are easy to use, i didnt use them the first time cuz i didnt know how to get them to work and i forgot to put the small one on before i assembles the joint so it wouldnt work after that lol so used zipties cuz i needed the bike ready for the next day for a marengo ride

    anyhow here is a video of how to use the band tool

    also if you go on the gorrila axle site i think they have a video somewheres of how to do it also

    The hose clamps are alotttt easier to remove in my opinion and are better for repeated use.

    Hose clames are ok for car boots but i find there alittle to wide for the grove.

    just need one large tie wrap with the little clip that holds pressure to be metal.

    cops use them when there big fights and stuff and not enough hand cuffs.

    I used a hose clamp once and wont do it again, they pick up weeds and crap from mud holes, and cause a huge mess when all that crap gets twisted arround the axle. I always just use plyers and a screwdriver, works pretty good.

    you need to turn the cage completely perpendicular to the cup  (sticking it in sideways) and the windows on each side of the cage need to be lined up with a raised part of the cup  (not the groove where the bearing rides)  if that makes any sense.....
     
     
    if you have it lined up like that it will drop right in, then you spin it whichever way is is supposed to go.

    i either use hose clamps or preferably an automotive CV band, the style that you crimp on. I use horse hoof clippers to crimp them tighter than you can get any zip tie !

    yeah you gotta turn the cage sideways,and pretty much force it in then you put the star in,and then you put each ball bearing in 1 at a time.then grease it,and shove the axle shaft in with the boot on first.
