    You dont re-use it.

    Thats a hose clamp that you when you buy they are open - and then you 'clamp' together with pliers.

    You will need to carefully open it with a small flat screwdriver - or cut it off.

    Agree but be careful. The reason these 'hose clips' are used is that they are supposed to grip the pipe evenly around the pipe. Its quite easy with a jubilee to snag it in one place etc.

    Be OK - dont overtighten and you should be fine.
