I use this thing a lot now that I have it! I used to use a band clamp for box corners and such but with this I can clamp the sides quickly and pin with a nailer and move on to another corner! I should have bought this long ago!
Tightens well and leaves no marks. Lightweight yet strong and the price is certainly right!
I bought 2 of the 90 deg. clamps. Each had a problem concerning workmanship. That is there was poor workmanship. The first problem was that one of the 2 clamps in one of the 90 deg. clamp units did not tighten. Instead the clamp's quick release engaged and then disengaged as I tightened the clamp to secure a work piece. If the quick release worked properly it would have remain engaged until I pushed on it to disengage it and thereby loosen the work piece. The problem was caused because the quick release was not working properly. I just exchanged the 90 deg. clamp at the store. The second 90 deg. clamp works properly but while working with it one of the screws holding a plastic insert in the jaws of one of the two clamps fell out and onto the floor. The plastic piece just protects the work piece from marring. I tried to tighten the screw but it turned out the threaded hole in the plastic was stripped. I kept the second 90 deg. clamp since the store in Brockton did not have any more units and it still functioned well. I just glued the screw in the hole. My conclusion is that the 90 deg. clamp is an excellent idea but there are problems with the quality of the product caused by poor manufacturing practices.
The clamp works fine. However, I ordered TWO and only received ONE!! (I did however, get credit for one. But now I have to order ANOTHER one!!
I MAKE GREAT PICTURE FRAMES WITH THIS ITEM. I ALSO USE IT TO MAKE SHADOW BOXES FOR MY SCHOOL AWARDS.AND OTHER ITEMS. IT IS A GREAT TOOL.
