Save your money. A block of scrap wood substitutes for the “step over” attachment with my old Jorgensen bar clamps. I don’t know about you, but money is tight these days. I try to make do with what I already have.

Don’t expect clamps in either style to exert a lot of pressure,
but for position clamping and the sort of sensitive angular
clamping involved in furniture repair and instrument making,
those clamps will be useful.

Thanks for the replies. I was hoping that the gimmick would be worthwhile. Guess not.

Oh – I would totally find use for a pair of each. The bar clamp
ones might serve in many of the same situations a luthier
clamp comes in handy for with the added benefit of being easier
to operate one-handed.

Those EZ Grips in your first link look an awful lot like the KliKlamps but at half the price Amazon sells them for. I’ve got about ten of those KliKlamps and use them all the time from glue ups to holding my grinder down to it’s table. If the LVs work as well as the KliKlamps they are worth having a few in the shop, IMO.

Have your say...
