About This Product

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.

Highlights

  • 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
  • TEKTON tools are Always Guaranteed: if you ever have an issue, contact us

    Answer This Question

    A:  No data available from Home Depot's website. Unknown, but is light to medium duty and breakable if you have a strong hand grip strength. I broke mine and returned it to purchase a heavy duty clamp/spreader.

    A:  Hello. This product isn't rated for a specific clamping force. Instead, it's just meant to hold work-pieces together for assembly.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Jose. We don't have a stated spec for the clamping/spreading force of this item. In general, these clamps are best used for holding things together for assembly. If you need a specific clamping force, these may not be best for you. If you have further questions about your use case, our team is available at www.tekton.com/support and we'll take care of you.

          Two clamps failed within a couple of weeks' use. Not recommended for any use beyond arts & crafts.

              Well-made clamp. I took out the bolt in the end and reversed the head to face the opposite direction in order to use the clamp in a unique way when repairing a car fender.

              I used this clamp to repair an oak 95 yr old dining room chair, the glue had finally dried out. I used this clamp to apply pressure to the seat after applying elmers glue, then to two braces that needed to be reglued, the 18 inch tekton clamp was easy to use and it did a great job applying pressure without marring the finished wood surfaces, great product, very cheap, high quality.

                Worked fine
                Bought six of these to help with assembly of four subwoofer "flat packs" that had to be glued together using clamps. They worked fine for this application, and the price is more reasonable than the fancy clamps. See the picture below for the clamps in action.

                I really couldn't have replaced the slings in my patio furniture without this tool.

                This light duty clamp functioned well in the application I purchased it for.
