generally speaking, the hose clamp won't snap - usually the worm gear damages (bends) the band, or the worm gear can pull itself through the housing. If the clamp is too tight, it can "extrude" the hose through the holes in the band, but this is generally more of an issue with silicone hoses, and can be avoided altogether if you use a lined hose clamp.
