These may be the most unassuming tools we have ever seen, but also perhaps the most useful. Frankly, we have never seen anything like them. They will be absolutely great in the shop and all around the house (even in the kitchen, or to hang bar rags).

Each clamp has two rubber gripping pads and uses an integral lever to close the clamp to its final position. The lever will hold its position at any point. The Small Clamp has a capacity of 5/16" max opening to zero. The Large Clamp has a capacity of 1-1/16" max opening to zero.

These are not fancy tools but are very, very useful—and very inexpensive. We recommend them very highly. Available in sets of 10 each and in a master kit of 20 (10 of each size). Made In India.

They Must Be Good ..
Reviewed By:   (Los Altos Hills, CA) 
.. if they've been around this long. My dad ran a sheet metal fab shop in the 60's and I worked there in the summer. Being the boss's kid I got to do a lot of fun stuff. One thing was building a custom aluminum Buckminister Fuller dome on spec. Must have used a zillion of these to set up and then pop-rivet everything together. They grab and hold great. I have the feeling they go way back as my Dad worked in an aircraft factory during WWII and a lot of what he used he learned there. These could have been in existence then, although I don't really know. I would have bought these on nostalgia alone but they are super handy!

Not Quite As Good As I Was Hoping For
Reviewed By:   (Tehachapi, CA) 
I purchased these clamps with the intent of using them for balsa model work. There small size permits additional options over standard spring clamps but the clamping mechanism has some limitations. First, the claim that "The lever will hold its position at any point." is true as long as it's at one of the four flat surface on the cam. Any other position slips towards the flat it's biased towards. Second, the first problem means that a user may end up with excessive or insufficient clamping force. Overall, as long as you're willing to work with the limitations, these clamps provide a few more options for modelers. Plus, who doesn't need a few more clamps!?

Poor Quality Control
Reviewed By:   (Pocomoke City, Maryland) 
I received a set of the small clamps and a set of the large clamps as a gift. The small clamps are perfect and work just fine. The large clamps were almost impossible to operate due to being riveted two tight. I had to lubricate the joint and work the clamp with a pair of pliers for several minutes to loosen them up where they could be used without the use of the pliers on on the operating lever. I would not recommend the purchase of the large clamps until Garret- Wade improves the quality control of their manufacturing process. These clamps, made in India, are not up to the normal Garret-Wade quality.

Overpriced And Too Hard To Close
Reviewed By:   (Carmel, IN) 
These are a great idea. The small ones work well. I was unable to close the larger ones as far too tight. Had to use pliers. I do have arthritis but do not have this degree of difficulty with my other tools. They also seem very expensive for such "simple" tools bought in bulk.

Wonderful Little Things!
Reviewed By:   (Shelton, WA) 
These little clamps are already making themselves indispensable in my shop! I got a set of each size. They find themselves clamping small projects, holding things up to dry, keeping thin veneers from slipping, holding fabric onto displays, keeping keys handy, and even pinning notes up on the lamp so I won't forget things. They are just a tad stiff to begin with, but that is probably necessary from a design standpoint. You need a bit o' friction to make them effective I reckon. I love these things. Worth their weight in gold.
