You got me worried now, lol... I left it running a leak test last night and it's still running while I'm at work. Watch me get home and my PC is

Still, those things took so much force to get on I couldn't imagine them coming off on their own. When trying to pull the tubing apart from the barb I laid an egg.

Well when leak testing did you notice any leaks? If not then you should be fine because its not like all of the sudden the setting would change from you not being there lol, but I do remember how you feel about not wanting to let it out of your sight for fear of leaks.

With 7/16" tubing on 1/2" barb, you most likely won't need a clamp.

If, say, it were 1/2" tubing on a 1/2" barb, then yes...a fitting would be deemed necessary.
