Clamp Size Question

I have a new right front axle that I managed to damage the outer gaiter clamp on. Anyone know what size it is? I'd like to get a replacement.

Wrap a string around and measure the length. Divided by π for diameter

It might be easier and quicker to just order a boot kit.

Another option would be a band clamp but they can be pricey and not easy to find either.

Too obvious shot right past.

I think I have one of those (I have a boot repair kit) I'll measure if I get a chance
