IMO, the round portion of this tool/jig HAS to be there in order to redirect the clamping forces in the proper direction, it’s just simple physics.

In a strap clamp it makes no difference but in the applications shown in the video the circular portions transfer of forces in the proper direction. The same thing one does when a dowel is placed between the jaws of a pipe clamp and the surface to be clamped.

The door hinge will work!
