Yes I admit I went to HF today – ref: previous blog.
I looked at this covertable clamp and was quite taken back.
HF Clamp This is it as a clamp
HF ClampNow it’s a screwdriver
HF ClampSee the socket wrench?
HF ClampAnother wrench
HF ClampNeed a hammer?
HF Clamp Pry bar and nail puller

Not the sort of item everyone would want but as an emergency tool in your trunk, not bad
If in doubt about this tool consider it cost $1.87 !!!!! Yeah I got 2 if them, one for the trunk, one for the house.

Seems gimmicky, but if it works for ya, more power.

Jimi_C : I don’t look at it as a serious tool, but at $1.87 it can get you out of a problem away from the shop.
bluchz : Me too, but there is a gadget for getting a boy scout out of a horse’s hoof!
ShawnH : Harbor Freight – but don’t mention the name in the presence of hard core, well heeled pro’s.

i have about 5 of these clamps they are plastic with a pivoting ridged orange tips and metal axel they work great but have only one gripping force. still they hold good for long periods of time. great for reliminating ends of waterdameged plywood or small projects that don’t compress too easily. auto body repair stores carry them they’re good for glues, putty and paints that can be used on wood too. picture in my next blog or project.

When I first saw the tip removed I thought it was broken. It took a double take to see it wasnt.

As my wife always says “You don’t need another gadget.” But that one is neat. I don’t know how long it would hold up though.
