    You should be able to use a hose clamp - if you can find one big enough.

    It might depend on the CV boot that you're installing. If the CV boot has a lip large enough to accomodate the width of the hose clamp, then you should be good.

    If not - then I'd find the proper clamp to fit in the lip.

    Lip - meaning, the outter edges where the clamp goes.
