Product Overview

Made for carpentry, cabinetry and furniture projects, the TEKTON 12 in. Ratchet Bar Clamp / 18 in. Spreader applies precise, consistent pressure to hold work pieces together for gluing or assembly. Press the quick-release button to freely position the jaw, then squeeze the trigger to apply pressure. Once set, the jaw is locked and will not creep. Soft jaw pads offer sure grip, but will not damage surfaces. When the job is finished, simply press the quick release button to let go of the work piece. If you need to push pieces apart or press them against outside surfaces, convert clamp to spreader by loosening wingnut and moving fixed jaw to the opposite end of the bar.
  • Continuous, trigger-operated ratchet action applies precise and consistent pressure
  • Press quick release button to freely slide jaw to any position
  • Strong reinforced nylon jaw assemblies
  • Soft jaw pads grip workpiece and protect surfaces from damage
  • Convert from clamp to spreader by placing fixed jaw on opposite end of bar

Spend more, it costs less!
I usually don't write a review unless the product is outstanding or trash. These are the latter! I purchased 8 total. 4 - 6", 2 - 12", 2 - 18". I went with these instead of the Dewalt I had planned on buying to save money. Big mistake! Within 3 months 2 of the 6" had snapped at the base of the top jaw while in use. I tried to return them, but I was told that I had obviously used them, so they weren't eligible for return?! Since then, the triggers on one of the 12" and one 18" have broken making them almost useless. They have about a 1/2" pull to tighten, so lots of squeezing! Besides the breaking, the trigger release is almost impossible to squeeze and the jaws slide out of the plastic protectors while tightening. The metal bar is nice, I am using the 6" as braces for a shelf. Rather expensive brace, but what can you do?

Clamp does not have much clamping power. Handle and trigger are uncomfortable (no padding) and trigger handle is very small (might fir a small boy's hand). I will not be buying this brand again.
