A hose clip/clamp .... it's a Brit thing (I believe) that some common items are often referred to us by their most well known brand names or original designer name. 'Jubillee' clips, 'Hoover' for any vacuum cleaner. Can't immediately think of others but I'm sure a few more may be mentioned.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Can't see that as being a brand name. I know across the Pond it is a term used for the road.
