About This Product

The BESSEY cabinetry clamp is designed to combine the multiple steps of face frame cabinet installation into one easy process. It works on stiles 1-1/2 in. to 2 in. and up to 1-1/2 in. thick (each). Face frame stiles can be tightened, aligned, pre-drilled and fastened while the clamp is in place. The clamp holds the individual cabinet edges together while also keeping the faces along the joint flush. There is an integrated pilot-hole drilling guide on one end. The guide flips out of the way so you can drive screws to connect the cabinets without removing or repositioning the clamp. Professional quality installation is achieved at a fraction of the time compared to the use of more conventional clamps.

Highlights

  • Simplifies face frame cabinetry installation
  • Holds cabinets together and align cabinet faces at the same time
  • Heavy duty construction
  • Integrated drill guide
  • Includes non-marring felt pads for all contact surfaces
  • Acme threaded spindles
  • Helps improve productivity, without sacrificing quality

    Q:Can you screw together before mounting?

    Answer This Question

    A:  You technically could but I wouldn’t recommend it. I think it works best to mount each cabinet, then use these to align the next box.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Beasley is a German company. I am not sure where the clamp is assembled but the parts are manufactured in Germany. I bought one out of necessity, but honestly would have bought a Pony brand clamp instead had it been available.

          Must have for setting cabinets
          As a trim carpenter, I install a lot of cabinets. These clamps are handy for so many reasons. They pull faceframes together, flush them up, and also hold cabinets together if you need to adjust them. With uppers, it helps hold the next cabinet on the wall, paired a cleat board, they keep the cabinet on the wall while reaching for tools. They are pricy for a clamp but well worth it when youre working with thousands of dollars worth of cabinetry.

            This tool ruined my cabinet
            The clamp is poorly machined. When used the ball on the face clamp penetrates the felt leaving a dimple on the face frame. I did two times before I noticed the damage. I don’t know how to fix it without replacing the cabinet. This is one of the most disappointing Home Depot purchases I made. I home they start looking at better quality products because it seems like a lot of things are not as well made as they used to be.

              Leaves dents in face frame
              I really wish I read the reviews. I watched some YouTube videos and the people using them thought they were great. They failed to mention the fact that the, super thin, felt pad does not prevent the end of the lead screw on the clamp from putting a dent in the face frame. Brand new cabinets with a giant blemish before they even have anything in them. So angry and very disappointed!!!!!

                Cheap garbage
                Bought 2 clamps, both of them leave a dimple on the face of the cabinets from the center plate. Really great tool to ruin your nice new cabinets with.

                  makes the job easier
                  Well worth the investment if your installing your own cabinets without a whole lot of experience, the clamps make it a bit fool proof. These clamps will keep the faces nice and straight, way tighter than any adjustable clamp can. There is a hole in the side to drill so you know your drilling will always be straight and with tight space in a small cabinet it is easy to get off center.

                    I used the Pony Cabinet Claws for years. They were an essential tool for hanging cabinets. So much so that someone borrowed them and never brought them back. The Ponys are no longer available. The Bessey clamps works in the exact same manner. I wouldn’t install cabinets without them.
