Tranny fluid radiator hose keeps blowing off?

About 3 weeks ago the transmission fluid hose running to the radiator came off the little barb and all of the fluid leaked out. I got a new hose clamp that actually fit, slid the hose all the way on and tightened up the hose well. Today when I left school it started to come out of gear and then I could smell the fluid and sure enough I knew the hose came off again. The fluid is leaking no where else and isnt coming threw the hose anywhere but for some reason it keeps coming off. Do I just have **** for luck or is there a pressure or heating build up of some sort? The fluid is clean the the Jeep was still fairly cold.

Cut the hose back some and put he clamp back on. The hose will soften with time and stretch enough that it won't hold the barb like it once did.

On my old Charger I had to run 4 hose clamps per end. Total of 16. Ohh Yeah..

Also seconding to cut the end off. You *might* just want to replace the line with fresh stuff anyways.

I don't know how much pressure a tranny can make, but could the heat exchanger in the rad be clogged causing it to blow off? Just something else to consider. I would try at least double clamping it.
