Default Sorry charge air clamp

I had a one of those goofy little clamps break on me yesterday and leave me stranded. The solid clamp on the bottom by the cooler on drivers side. Anyone else??? Looks really puny to me.

I'm his brother, but here the pics.. Happened at 700 last night so no option of going to a dealer and he's on a cross country trip with a loaded cargo trailer.. Very inconvenient

Can't upload a photo off my phone but yea 3 months old 15000 miles was in middle Wyoming on 80 pulling a big cargo trailer. They said they couldn't do anything with trailer so just told them to forget it. Called five star towing out of rock city had them bring me a 3 inch hose clamp 200 $ later was back on road. Gm said they wouldn't put that clamp on cause of warranty reasons😂

Can you fit a t-bolt clamp over existing clamp or is there something in the way?
