Simple way to make longer clamps, use chain.

Start with 2 pieces of 3/4” pipe about 3’ long. On one, place the screw asssembly. On the other, the adjustable ‘foot’. Then drop a piece of chain thru both pipes. Stick a bolt thru the chain at each end so it cannot slip. By changing the location of the bolt, you change the length of the clamp.

I’ve used this system to clamp system to pull cabinets over 30’ long into position .

The only secret is finding the chain. Your local big box store probably will NOT have the chain you will need. My supply house has several chains that will fit.
