Default ac line protection ?

I have a big txs tmic that rubbed a hole in my low side ac line. I got one to replace it but does anyone know of something I could wrap it with to prevent this from happening again ? Any suggestions welcome thanks

Split loom or Cut a hose with an internal diameter about the size of the a/c line down the center and zip tie it on (kind of like roll cage padding).

You need to bend the line out of the way and make a new bracket to lower it down.

You'll be replacing it again if you don't even with something covering it.

They aren't that fragile. Just go slow by hand and don't kink it.

I used heat wrap and a 1/2 rubber hose too. So far so good.

I used a clamp like the one on the a/c hose on the fire wall to that rubber mount. So I re-used that clamp at the top of the fire wall with a self tapping screw. Been this way for years. Works really well.

Don't mean to bump an old thread but thought it would be helpful.
