how to secure silicone intake hose

OK, my silicone intake hose (vishnu pwm version) just popped out while i was doing 18psi.
it's been a year since i installed it and it's been through some abuse, not sure why it decided to pop out now.
since i'm going to have to remount it, what do you guys do to prevent this sort of things? i hate to over tighten the T-clamps for fear that it'll crush the throttle body.
do these things slowly edge out till it pops out? do you guys check it every so often? i usually inspect my engine bay and it didn't look out of norm yesterday.

any tips/tricks are welcome.
