Default Radiator coolant bottle

I've noticed that on my 2006 GT that the hose that runs from the coolant bottle to the radiator does NOT have hose clamps installed, just pushed in place? Is this normal on all PT's? I have had to replace coolant in the bottle and was wondering that when the system get's hot, the hose expands and allows coolant to get out? Can't see it but I do get a whiff of coolant from time to time while driving. I am going to put hose clamps on, just wondering if any one else had the same issues? Thanks

The Haynes and Chilton manuals for the Turbocharged models don't show any clamps on the hose but it sure can't hurt putting one one if you want to.
