I'm removing the fuel tank for routine maintenance, and have come across a hose clamp I've not worked with before. It is the clamp on the fuel return hose at the tank. The clamp appears to be a type of double clamp, ie. a 3 tab spring clamp with an outter shell clamp that further compresses it. How are these removed...are they reuseable..how are they reinstalled and do they require a specific tool? Thanks for your responses (and for so kindly sharing your knowledge)

They are a quick release coupling, push the line like you are pushing it on farther then squeeze the tabs and pull the line off.

I'm afraid this is not a coupling. It's rubber hose over a nylon pipe with hose clamp around the rubber hose. Have to open the hose clamp wide enough to tug everything past the flare at the end of the pipe. Problem is, this clamp is TIGHT and conpressing the tabs towards each other doesn't open it far enough to loosen things.
