single handed
7 Apr 2014
By woodgnome
, Oldham
"Brilliant little clamp easy to use one handed and grips really well excellent value for money and perfect for D.I.Y jobs around the house- first saw one of these on TV where a well known professional builder recommended them.
If you can afford it and I cant get the 18 inch quick change bar clamp as its what the other picture shows when you look at this items details just as JimND of Sheffield says in his review it does not have the features shown i.e the thicker bar and adjustable front jaw. All in all a great item though

Good, but not as shown
5 Dec 2013
By JimND
, Sheffield
"The photo shows a large hole in the bar, and a screw fastening the fixed jaw on. That means the jaw could be moved to the other end and it could be used to force something apart. Mine can only be used as a cramp. It's good, but the pictured one has an extra feature."

Great Little Gripper
4 Aug 2013
By RetiredCraftsman
, Gosport
"Bought these to replace broken 4" quick grip cramps. The operation is virtually the same as the previous cramps but having a longer bar for the head/tail to slide along it is possible to cramp up items of greater size. They are not heavy duty and so used only for light to medium cramping situations where heavier cramps would be inapropriate."

How did I manage before?
13 Jul 2012
By wolverine874
, Cumbria
"I bought two of these two hold wood in place whilst measuring, marking and cutting, and to hold wood in jigs whilst marking and cutting.
Prior to this I had G-cramps which tape too long to adjust to their limits, and in practice I don't use them unless I have to.
Having had these for a while, I really don't know how I managed without them, and have been back to buy another two. They're light, easy and quick to use and adjust, strong and just so handy.
Will be saving up to get them in all different sizes!"

Excellent Restraint
26 Jun 2012
By SideboardSpanker
, Edinburgh
"I bought a pair of these for a friend who was having problems keeping wood in place whilst she was working on it.
I didn't even have to show her how to use them - she was actually quite persistent that I was restrained from taking part. She was able to effortlessly use these clamps with one hand; whilst her free hand positioned the wood as she wanted it.
The clamps provide excellent restraint, even though the wood was rattling around.
Would recommend these to anybody who needs quick and strong restraint, especially for large, hard wood."

"Had a job that needed more hands than i've got so had a look in the Screwfix mag and found these, they're very well made, easy to use and at £6.99 a must have. Just remember they're lightweight clamps and i would think they'll last for years."

Great clamp for the money
2 Jun 2012
By donrevie

"I do fine woodworking as a hobby and these clamps have performed well in the time I've had them. Just understand their limits and they'll serve you well. They're not meant to hold huge blocks of material together, but used on the right job these are great value for money and will serve you well."

Superb !
17 Nov 2011
By elab
, Wigan
"After buying one yesterday and using it today I can't believe I mucked around for all those years without one !
Some parts are plastic (but strong!) so it probably won't still be around in 10 years, but it is way better than I expected and easily clamped 2 4x"2" beams together tightly while I screwed them together.
Easy to use, fast and cheap."
