Great handle is easy to grip.
Easy to release.
Bar has decent rigidity.
Large clamp pad surface area.
Difficult to engage clamping pressure – clamps often won’t “bite” then you are forced to reset the threads and try again. This usually occurs during a glueup, when time is of the essence.
Nothing holds the moveable clamp head in position when not in use. Occasionally that part will slide down the bar and slam into the fixed head. Most clamps have triggers to prevent this annoying problem.
They don’t perform as well as my Bessey 1/2” H body pipe clamps.
They do work, and I use them frequently for desk frame and table glueups. The mechanism that engages the clamps takes some getting used to, but all in all a good clamp.
