Quick Release Clamp No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I have had two of these clamps for about 1 year. I bought them because I am a bit of a sucker for new tools. They sat in a drawer unused for a few months until I had a job that needed some tight clamping, the other quick grip clamps similar the Irwin XP did not have the gripping power.
I now often reach for these clamps first because they have excellent holding power for their size (18”);
-they are easy to apply
-quick to release
-the tensioning lever is ratcheted
-you can adjust the tension easily from light to heavy grip.
-they are a reasonable price down under & I guess elsewhere if available.

I have tons, well maybe not tons, but a lot of the older type of clamps. My wife kids me about all of the clamps that I have. I would like to have some of those new clamps that are out on the market these days, but I can just hear what my wife would say if I came home with another clamp. Maybe I could sneak some into the shop we have here at the senior community without her knowing.

Well you know what they say – you can never have enough clamps. I’m a big big fan of the “one hand” clamps.

same here you can never have too much clamps. a lot of my clamps are like, you would never think they are useful until you start using them.

These look like good quality clamps, Grumpy. I’ve never seen any just like them. I’ll be looking for these based upon your recommendation. Thanks!

I saw ‘em at a woodworking trade show but I can’t remeber the name of them for the life of me. The demonstrator did do some amazing things with them, I’ll say that much!

A company called Shanghai Shining makes a clamp exactly like this one only difference is color. name doesn’t ring a bell.

No name on it Chuck but I guessed it was probably Chinese. I think it just goes to prove, you can’t have too many clamps.
