"Since buying these a week ago I've used them every day. I really don't know why I've never had clamps like these before. Especially useful for sawing sheet timber but also for holding work while belt sanding, and much else. Only minor grumble is that the rectangular plastic jaw protector has a tendency to slide off, otherwise they're fine and really easy and quick to use. Great value too."
"Very good clamps. Much better than the slightly cheaper (brandless) ones. Precise in positioning and tightening, good grip on handles (can tighten nearly fully with two fingers), very limited play. Solid feel."
"I recently bought some of these clamps after some of my old clamps finally failed on me. I had seen this type while in Germany, but totally dismissed them, as they looked too fragile. How wrong I was, these are the best clamps I have ever had, very fast and easy to use, with a very strong grip and should last longer than any other types I have, or have used in the past. I will be buying more of these fantastic clamps, in various sizes in the future because of their excellent properties, they are "CRACKIN CLAMPS" !!!"
"These are very cheap, so it is no surprise that when clamping they push out at odd angles, and that the thread is uneven and prevents free movement. Provided direction is not important, they're fine. You get what you pay for."
Cons: clamp tends to rotate and slide when tightened against anything other than very rough surfaces. Because of this is it best to for two handed operation. The relatively small contact area and hard plastic pads tend to leave a mark if over tightened.
Because of these issues I have switched to using the Irwin single handed clamps 29139"
"There is a very good reason these clamps are so cheap... they have been made with no attention to detail and this results in a poor quality, weak, sub-standard clamp. The head does not line up with the face, because it has been riveted on at an angle so when clamping pressure is applied it twists. All the clamps supplied to me, including the replacements after a complaint did this to a varying degree. My advise is spend a little more and get something worth having."
