About This Product

Ratcheting hand clamps differ in that they work in an opposite fashion to regular spring clamps. It is your hand that provides the clamping force, and the spring forces the jaws apart when the quick release trigger is pressed. They are available in two sizes; 2 in. and 4 in. capacity.


  • Soft, anti-slip 2 component handle for comfort
  • Heavy duty resin construction with pivoting jaws
  • Rapid-action
  • Positive locking mechanism
  • Ratcheting mechanism provides variable clamping pressure
  • Riveted pivoting clamp pads won't fall off
  • Unique and innovative design for productivity
  • Swiveling pads engineered to provide secure clamping on variety of shapes and work surfaces

Answer This Question

A:  no

by|Feb 23, 2022

A:  Does not clamp will not hold UV light may not matter

by|Oct 5, 2021

A:  I have quite a few of these in my shop, and I'm very happy with them. I would worry more about the metal clamp lock than the plastic degradation in UV light, but I can't give you an accurate answer to your question.

A:  Bought these clamps to lend a hand for cutting down some material on a miter box. Worked great. However, wish the head/ends were more rubbery and not so stiff.

by|Jul 17, 2021

    A:  I'm not sure what gardening application you would use this for. Plastics generally degrade with time in intense UV environments, but it should provide several years of service. I would avoid extreme temperatures - sub zero or over 100 F.

    A:  Never clamp more than 3 skunks together at the same time and you'll never have a stinky issue son.

      Q:Would this work to hold a separated baseboard mitered corner (90 degree) in place after gluing it?

      A:  the jaws might not be wide enough, i had trouble using it on a 3" project, wouldn't lock

      by|Oct 30, 2019

        A:  In a word - no. The slick face of the pads refuse to stay in one place; your efforts would be an exercise in futility.

          by|May 24, 2021

            A:  No this isn't the proper clamp for that use.

            Not A Good Item
            I am sorry I purchased this. I cannot squeeze with a enough pressure to make it stay where I need it. I have a blood blister where is pinched my pinky finger while opening it. So far, it's been useless.

            Buy yourself a chip clip!
            Save yourself some cash and frustration and buy some chip clips instead! They are much stronger than this junk. Have yet to find a project that they actually work on, INCLUDING BEING USED AS A CHIP CLIP! Garbage!

              Good clamps
              This is a good clamp to have for lighter projects. This is not a heavy duty clamp nor does it have a strong clamp strength but that is not the intent of this clamp. So it does great at what it is meant to be and has a non marking pad surface.

              Great clamps for woodworking.
              These clamps work excellent, if you use them correctly. These clamps only have 40 pounds of clamping force. The reason they only have 40 pounds of clamping force is that they’re made for clamping face frames and cabinet door frames, things that you don’t want a lot of force applied to, you just want enough to hold it in place Until the glue dries. These clamps are perfect because they sit flat on your workbench so you can assemble the door on top of them....perfect

                I really wanted to like these clamps. I have older 4 inch ratcheting Bessey clamps which I love using. Unfortunately, the newer clamps pictured have a much smaller handle, and, therefore, allow very little leverage for tightening down on your material. These will be my first ever return of a Bessey product.
