Very solid clamp - great price
15 Aug 2014

"I was looking for a clamp for a large piece of work and decided to buy this one from Screwfix.
After reading reviews about many others I thought I would try this one as there were other positive reviews and some of the lighter weight clamps were not cutting it from the feedback users had left.
I wasn't let down. This is a very solid and dare I say simple clamp, but very effective. it is not the lightest, but that doesn't matter, it will last a long time, not much can wrong with it and if needed would buy another."

By JohnH61

"I have been considerably impressed by the performance and the robust construction of these clamps.
I purchased one, and bought a second three days later.
They are terrific value for money and I expect years of regular use out of them.
Great product, highly recommended.

Does the job
21 Aug 2011
By Cicero
, Birmingham
"I bought a pair of these clamps for a specific job but have found myself using them all the time. Despite the price the clamps are sturdy and look as if they`ll be in use for a long time. There is nothing fancy about them. They are solid and workmanlike, exactly what I needed. Can easily see myself buying more as the need arises."

Forge steel sash clamp 36''

By Will4

"This product does exactly what it says on the box. It gives an excellent range of movement to clamp small to medium pieces of work, its not too heavy to handle but of very strong construction. I expect this product would last for many years. And its excellent value for money too."

Poor quality
18 Jul 2012
By Alldoer
, Devon
"I had hoped that these would be at least comparable to the Record clamps, but I guess the price should have given a clue.
These clamps will only do light work, and will not last. The turning bar is so thin it will bend under hand pressure, and the connection between the thread and the moveable head is very poor, and will undoubtedly break. Only suitable for very occasional use. They are also undersized, claiming to cope with 900mm wide clamping, but in fact only managing 850mm.

Value Sash Clamp
1 Nov 2011
By Steve937
, Cambridgeshire
"Bought two of these and have used them for around 12 months. They are competitively priced but this is clearly reflected in the quality. The casting is rough and like others found the threads are of poor quality making it difficult to operate with one hand. The thread is very course which makes applying pressure much more difficult and results in the winding bar bending when trying to tighten. The end of the threaded bar is also poor quality and has deformed meaning it binds when tightening and pulls out of the cramp head when unwinding. The jaws also deform under load and splay out so you tend not to get even clamping. As others have pointed out the distance between the jaws is less than 36" although the steel is easily drilled and I added an extra hole to get greater distance. Overall they do the job on the cheap if you have a one off project that doen't need accurate clamping, but there are other value makes on the market which offer far better value."

Poor Build Quality, & not 36"
17 Jun 2011
By Gerry2106
, London
"I have just received 4 of these, very stiff screw threads even after oiling, one needed a steel pipe to get it to turn, the bar on the end bent. sizes ranged from 35" to 35 3/4 max. but for strengh work you need to use the insert bar and holes - this gives you a bar of 30". These are all going back. Because of the stiffness of the cast iron / screw assemble you need more than 2 hands on some units."

Beware - length not as stated
8 Mar 2009
By dazzledoc
, Peterborough
"The layout of holes on this clamp is ridiculous. The last hole is 5.5" from the end but the first hole is covered by the movable end. Because of this the maximum interjaw length using the end hole is only just over 30". Look at the enlarged picture and compare it to the Irwin Record sash clamp where you can see the holes go all the way to the end. Beware - this is not usable as a 36" sash clamp and should not be advertised as such."
