"This clamp is cheap but really good. The spring loaded adjustable head makes it quick and easy to adjust to the desired length for fast clamping when securing glued items. The bar tightener isn't the best as its only secured at each end with plastic caps that easily slide off, apart from that, really can't fault it"
"Can't heve enough of these clamps. Just bought 2 more in different lengths and find them easy and quick to use. The only thing I would point out is that they should not be over tightened in order to correct bad jointing as the heads can snap if too much pressure is applied. This said, if you try to force a joint you should blame your workmanship, not the tool."
"I bought these to build some MDF cupboards that will slide in/out from under our stairs.
Each cupboard has been built using 18mm MDF, glued together and clamped using these sash clamps before screwing together.
They are lightweight, have a good quality feel and clamp the work perfectly without leaving any marks thanks to the soft feel of the metal clamp jaws. They are easy enough to hold up with one hand, even when being so long thanks to the aluminium body.
The sprung back clamp is also really useful, much better than pulling out a hole stop type arrangement.
I will be looking at buying some more in the future."
"I purchased 2 of these clamps to use whilst repairing some old Victorian doors I had purchased. They did the job a treat. Were easy to use on your own, clamped up tightly and held the joints securely and squarely until the glue had set. Dont know how they will stand up if used proffesionally, but for occasional use by a DIYer they are great value. Would thoroughly recommend them."
"Considering the price they are good value clamps. I haven't used them for anything too heavy (I've been joining old oak floorboards to make table tops etc) but they hold well and can also be used as a guide for a circular saw or router. I've used one as a guide to cut floorboards along a straight edge and they tighten well enough so as to prevent any slipping of the saw. The movable head looks a bit flimsy but hasn't let me down so until it does I have no complaints. I'm going to buy two of the 2feet ones as well as the 3 feet length is good for doors and tables but the length gets in the way for smaller jobs - but still works equally well if you have the room for the overhang.
For the money I think they are hard to beat but - a word of caution - I think the head would bend for heavy work so a more expensive model might be a better choice."
"I bought two of these to complete a workbench. Doing a good job, also being aluminum these are a lot lighter than my steel ones. The ends will fall off of the tommy bars but a little glue will fix it."
"I bought two of these, plus two 36" ones, to put back together some flat pack drawers that had fallen apart. Very good clamping action for the work I needed, so just the right quality for me. If I was doing some really heavy duty clamping then I suspect that the rather basic mechanism (and plastic parts) would not stand up to too much pressure. On one of the 4 sash clamps I got the screw action of the clamp was rather stiff, and oil didn't make a difference. I managed Ok though. As previously mentioned the collar that slides along the rail can catch occasionally, but just keeping it straight as you adjust the coarse length is sufficient. So - professionals stay away but for DIYers these work great. ""
"I have had two of these for quite some time and the only problem is the clamp jaw comes away from the threaded joint but doesn't effect the use. I needed a third clamp to use in conjunction with the two existing clamps"
"this sash clamp has a aluminium slid rail with notches that enables the stock to be located very quick with the flick of a lever rather than removing a pin and relocating it for diy work it is ideal but would not like to put to much pressure on this product all in all it does the job and good value for your money"
