[RFI] Using Split Beads

I ordered some material 43 split beads to place on rg8 coax.  It appeared 
to me that the coax had an outside diameter of 3/8 of an inch, so that 
was the size of split bead I ordered.  Now that I have the beads, the 
inside "hole" of the split beams is a bit small for the outside diameter of 
the coax.  
So, my question is, is it essential that both halves of the split bead 
actually touch each other, to fully encirle the coax, to work optimilly, 
or will they still be effective, even if there is a small gap between the 
two halves of the split bead?
Any comments would be appreciated.
