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

      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 bought variety of these clamps in different sizes. I am quite pleased with their performance, however I have never used ratchet clamps of any other brand so it is hard for me to compare. In general I have a feeling that ratchet clamps are not made for heavy duty jobs, but for holding material in place or glueing pieces of wood they work just fine. They are easy to use, it takes little time to clamp things, just few pushes on a trigger, one hand operation and its done. Hollow handles seem a bit flimsy. One of my clamps fell down from about 7 feet onto the concrete floor. Handle cracked. I was able to glue pieces together. It is still working. I use them daily to clamp and spread things, however when I feel I need high pressure I use C clamps. It is certainly a good deal, especially when they are on sale.

      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.

        This was my second purchase. They replaced my first one when it broke, no questions just sent a new one in a couple of days. So when I needed another one they got my business. Great product. Great customer service, great company.
