Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Innova Economical simple frame clamp
So far I used this band clamp on one DIY 18-inch square frame, from picture frame moulding also bought at Home Depot. Once the shouldered metal corner brackets are in place, the clamp tightens and holds mitered corners square and tight.
The removable corners are ideal for normal height frames, and also make the clamp available for more diverse projects. Since the inside metal corners are slightly rounded, I taped thin plates to each inside face, about 1/16-inch from the corners.
It would be nice if Home Depot were to carry v-nails (e.g., Logan brand, for enforcing frame corners) that I found elsewhere with shipping expense.

Used this to repair a picture frame broken during moving. The corners all separated. Turns out the frame was made of a structured polystyrene foam. We couldn't find a picture framer willing to work on the frame. We used a small tube of construction adhesive, also purchased at Home Depot, and this band clamp. It comes with 90 degree corners and a locking ratchet. I applied even pressure all around and after 24 hours we had a perfectly repaired frame with picture hanging on the wall of our new home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sternberg Works very well for clamping wooden boxes for glueup.
I have other more expensive and fancier clamps that do virtually the same thing. I needed a few more and ordered them online. Meanwhile I saw these and bought them. they work so well, I have bought more of them.

I'm a collegiate art student and this band clamp works perfectly for when I build my canvases. The length (15ft) really allows me to build larger canvases with a secure way to hold them in place. I really like the little wrench and braces this particular clamp comes with, it makes it easier to use.

I've used this clamp before, but it belonged to a friend. It was easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to remove from the project piece. I figured I'd better buy my own since I was going to be using it rather frequently. Glad I did, when I did. Got it at a good price and the Home Depot gals were great in assisting in the buying process. The only bad thing was it come when they said it would, so I had to borrow the friend' clamps again. It did come rather quickly, but a few days after it was promised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gamma Handy clamp for curved project
This was my first chair repair project. The clamp was easy to use; however, I could've used an extra hand, but still accomplished it. I used a socket wrench instead of the included tool for more leverage. I would definitely recommend to a friend!
