Let's face it, in a lot of cases a clamp just needs to hold two parts in place whilst the glue dries, you don't always require something capable of crushing a truck. Spring clamps are easy to position with one hand, fast, firm, relatively inexpensive and more than capable of fulfilling numerous clamping needs. These all-steel, plated clamps have vinyl plastic jaw tips to protect your work-piece. The same coating on the handle makes for comfortable use. Use these clamps for holding workpieces whilst glue dries, temporarily securing a moulding as you nail it in place, in small jigs or just as overgrown bulldog clips. Capacities given are for the clamps fully open and the throat depth.

Strong hands neededI am an amateur woodworker. A warning - you need strong hands to open these clamps. My hands, wrists & elbows are arthritic. I assumed I would be able to apply these clamps to work pieces clamps one-handed. I was completely unable to open 3 inch & 1 inch clamps at all. It reminded me of my woodwork teacher at school, who had muscles like walnuts on his hands. Obviously good quality clamps.
