Product Overview

This rapid acting 23 ft. strap clamp makes clamping round or irregular shaped objects a much easier task. Clamping irregular shapes with strap clamps is not a new idea; however, most clamps of this style exert force (pull) in only one direction and this can easily distort the work piece. The BESSEY VAS-23+2K is different as it pulls equally on both ends of the strap, eliminating the chance of distorting your work piece to one side. The high tensile woven polyester strap is extremely strong and there is a built in take-up reel that neatly stores the excess strap.
  • An excellent tool for clamping round or irregular shaped objects
  • Strap is drawn simultaneously from two sides to ensure pressure is applied equally
  • Integrated rewind mechanism that neatly stores excess strap
  • 4 twin-tilting pads are variable in a range from 60 degrees to 180-degrees
  • Woven polyester strap with 1000 lbs. tensile strength is resistant to tearing

Can i strap a 53” x 27” frame with this?

Yes. If I understand correctly, you are describing a 13.33 foot perimeter, and the clamp size is 23 foot. Should be plenty of room.

I want to clamp wood to form triangles of different angles. would this work for me?

I was able to glue up a triangle using one of these, cannot see what would stop you from doing many different angles. If possible may suggest pin nailing them as well.

I have a spotting scope that mounts onto a tripod. The clamp that holds the scope onto the tripod broke. I need a temporary fix for the scope.

I was looking for a tool that can hold my frame project together until glue set. My frame was 36" x 28". This product was very easy to use. I have several more frame projects to complete, so this is one tool that I would use often.

If you are making a picture frame or a dinning room table, this clamp will meet your need, simple to use and applies equal pressures to all sides. One strap clamp like this can replace several clamps on a big job. I had a cheaper make of one of these and so glad I stepped it up and got a Bessey!

Very nice clamp. If more than four corner block were included for gluing more than for side projects I’d give it five stars

I purchased two of these for a repair project when I was visiting my daughter's home, because the HD store did not have the "Pony" type of strap clamp (HD Model # 1215-K Internet #100129976 Store SKU #362123) that I am accustomed to using. I was very disappointed with them. Pros: (1) The variable-angle corners are neat for clamping shapes that have non-right angles, like triangles, hexagons, etc., as compared to the simple right-angle corners provided with the Pony type clamp. (2) The strap is heavier and and 8 ft longer. (3) The two ends of the strap come apart, allowing it to be threaded through places a one-piece strap may not go. (This is also technically possible with the Pony style, but trickier.) Cons: (1) The reel and handle body is too large and heavy. Unless you use it flat, on a table, the weight pulls downward, twisting the strap. This is in contrast to the much smaller, lighter-weight reel and ratchet body of the Pony type. (2) The twist handle is difficult to turn if you have the work laid out flat on a bench, as compared to the Pony clamp (which can be turned by a small wrench, included, at right angles to the bench top. (3) The wire spring link that joins the two ends of the strap has two problems: (a) it acts like a spring, limiting the amount of tension you can put; (b) it will put a dent in wood where it makes contact; (c) it tends to come loose. (4) Those nifty variable angle corners don't quite work. As the strap is tensioned, the friction of the strap pulls them off-center, putting more force on one side of the corner than the other. I don't have this problem with the Pony model, but the have only done right-angle corners. Recommendation: Consider the simpler and cheaper Pony model.

I had my doubts, but I LOVE IT! Just bought it today at Home Depot, Appleton (Darboy) WI. Photo is of my first attempt at a picture frame that we made too wide for the inexpensive miter clamps. It is square, and applied enough force to squeeze glue out of the joints. The big surprise was it took only 1/4 of the time to make the frame, compared to using the 4 qty miter clamps. Thanks to the video Home Depot had for this product, I was able to use it at once with great results. I highly recommend this product, and I am tough to impress. This Bessey Angle strap clamp is a tool every DIY'er should have in his tool selection.

When you need a strap clamp this is the one
Strap clamps are for situations where bar and other clamps won't work at all or as easily. Straps don't have the tightening pressure of metal clamps, but for odd shaped objects they get the job done the best way possible. The Bessey Angle Strap Clamp has plenty of clamping force and is an improvement over others I've used. I like that it uses a mechanism to keep the excess strap rolled out of the way on a take-up reel. It comes with four pivoting corner pieces which work by slipping between the work and the strap directing the force into and around corners. The strap is a 23 foot long strip of woven polyester material. It has two ratcheting systems to tighten working together. One ratchet tightens the strap quickly on a reel and the second one tightens with a screw mechanism in fine increments to snug taut. I've used this clamp to repair a chair holding the legs in place for re-gluing tenons. The best approach was to go slow and slip the corner pieces into place as you start to tighten up the strap. Then make smaller adjustments positioning the corners as the strap tightens. I own a number of different clamps, but you always get a project where a strap clamp is best for the job and this one works nicely.

I had a 5 ft by 4 ft picture frame that had fallen and broke. This tool allowed me to glue and secure the joints and repair the frame. The picture is back in its proper place.
