"It was a sunny day and I was building a table. It was then I suddendly realised I was not able, to clamp the top lengthwise while the glue dried. I was so annoyed and could have almost cried. I picked up my phone and looked online for a bar clamp that was big, one larger than mine. It was then I found the 48" sash clamp and clicked buy now. Really fast delivery Screwfix take a bow. I applied the glue and tightened the clamps. The job is now complete and I have Screwfix to thank."
"Purchased two units to clamp the mortise and tenon joints on a window I was making. Wanted the cast iron clamps but needed them in a hurry and they were out of stock. "Made do" with these lighter clamp and they did the job well.
They were easy to position and tighten.
Good value for money and will get well used now that I have them!"
"Does exactly what you want it to do - but is so easy - massive length - good grip - great for doors or other large items. I bought 2 units - smart move especially when you need to ensure consistency..."
"This was so easy to use. So easy to slide open or close the jaws. Not sure on the plastic caps on the ends of the T Bar (the handle). These fall off very easily and could easyily be lost. Having said that, it does make it easy to remove the bar, if it gets in the way.
"lightweight clamps but more than up to heavyweight clamping tasks, you are never going to assemble regular household doors and windows with these but for the less demanding tasks like coffee tables and picture/mirror frames then these are a must buy. excellent all round"
"An excellent choice for the average diy enthusiast who only needs to use these on an occasional basis as they are a fraction of the cost of more robust clamps. They do the job perfectly adequately and should last well if used sensibly."
"These are certainly not the heavy weight Record sash clamps that you could keep under the bed for self defence. However, for light to medium clamping duties they are just fine. If you have a big clamping job on and need an armful of clamps then I doubt you can find them much cheaper."
"Stable and well made product. Obviously with softer aluminium u-rail you have to be careful not to force the clamp in the wrong position or can dig in and dent. Good for lightweight clamping applications."
"Well, they do what they say on the tin. Pretty well constructed, a little bit of play until you really tighten the clamp. Light weight, so not too hard to move around. I used on a 2m x .8m x .3m bookshelf being glued-up. Worked fine."
"They are a bit tinny and the bars ends have a rubber bung on the end were it would have been better with being riveted over or crimped at the ends, the rubber ends are going to get lost or misplaced, I have lost count of the amount of times I have put them back on, I have only used them once. but they did the job to clamping 7 pieces of tongue and groove together."
"I bought these because I needed 3 quite long clamps and they were much cheaper than steel ones. They might be OK for very light weight projects which is why I didn't give them zero stars, but for my purpose they were completely inadequate and went wrong in multiple ways. Probably my own stupid fault for going cheap."
