Unhappy Pypes rattle

So I had a muffler shop install a set of pypes axle back "pype bombs" on my 12 v6. After about a week I had some rattle under acceleration and when the shop looked again they said one of the clamps had come loose and was rattling off a hanger. Unfortunately after they "fixed it" it took all of 3 days for this to start up again.

Has anybody had problems with the clamps? If so how did you fix it? And does anyone have any other suggestions on how to keep the rattle out?

This happened to me before, just tighten it very very tight, and then some more.

Have a spot weld put on every connection. It will never rattle, and the pipes will stay whereyou want them. I did this on an exhaust system I installed 16 years age and it still doesn't rattle.

I had my pype bombs welded on so they would fit right.
