Alternative clip to use for ETS Charge Pipe

Got my charge pipe installed about a month ago and today i decided to take my car to COBB to do some dyno runs to see how much power i was making compared to stock after installing a bunch more mods.

During the dyno the tube that connects to the silicon popped off. We tightened the silicon clamp and gave it another run and the same thing happened again. Is there any alternative clamps i can use that can ensure it wont slip off the silicon.

I assume you have t-bolts? If so you could use a little hair spray on the coupler.

Short of changing your charge pipe to one that utilizes the OEM c-clip connection to the throttle body, the above advice is probably the best you're going to get.
