How do you deal with this brake line clip on the rear axle?

The brake hard line along the axle tube to the right rear wheel is held down by this clip.



Do you just pry it open to release the line and then bend it back when the new line's installed? That would seem to be the only way to do it, but I wanted to be sure...

That's how I've always done it, but never with a clip that was that rusty.

Add some duct tape and bailing wire and you'll have a complete repair kit!

On a previous vehicle I used some brake line clamps that were a rubber bushing that went around the line and tied to the axle with hose clamps. And I can't figure out where I got them. Internet image search hasn't been useful, so if anyone thinks they know what I'm talking about I'd appreciate a link.

I really need to have my stripped out vent block held on with something besides a couple of fat cable ties and some black RTV, though it's held.

I also throw in a roll of self-sealing repair tape and JB weld to complete the kit.

If running new brake line w/o the spring protector I've pried up those welded on clips, split longways a short piece of small fuel hose on the line, then pushed the clip back down. I've also used small diameter split pieces of fuel hose elsewhere on the brake lines where they may rub against bare metal (over top of the pumpkin).

I've also used the below rubber cushioned clamps on brake and fuel lines. Of course you wouldn't be screwing it to axle but could probably run a zip-tie through the holes.

While it's a little pricey at $23 for 16ft I've also used the below stainless 3/16" protector (gravel guard spring) when making my own brake lines next to the axles.

Darn bushy-tailed rats have chewed up my trailer wiring again and I'm going to run all new wiring inside of the above stainless steel spring protector. Hope that dulls their little demon teeth! Lol.
