Not really , they wouldn't fit the hoses very well and wouldn't be able to connect it to another hose, unfortunately. Not sure I'd trust adhesive under the bonnet either.

Thanks though.

These are the easiest to use and reuse, just twist the ends together i'm sure you can get them in different size's,,,,, https://www.ebay.com/itm/25-Wire-Ret...-/401072472121 and find a uk site

Ooh, that might work. Could zip tie them to one hose and twist around the 2nd.

Edit: That would work for hoses that cross each other, but I'd need large ones to go round both hoses for parallel ones. Will see what sizes are available and how well they hold.

For those who don't get my vague description of what I'm doing at the moment...

Now that looks like the right sort of thing! Question is, are they available with different diameters on one side vs the other? Eg radiator hose attached to a half inch SC oil feed hose. I'll do some searching...

I think your cable tie approach is fine. What's the problem again? Doesn't look pretty?
