Unfortunately the retainer clips/spacers that are installed at the factory at the end of the clamp bar are easily broken. Two of the four were broken when I opened the packaging; there was no external damage to the Bessey boxes or the overwrap box, so I believe this is a packaging problem at Bessey. I was able to glue these clips back together so that they work, but it wasn't a great solution. Also, the black plastic protective pads that sit on the clamp faces and the top of the clamp slide off easily, which makes for one more thing you need to keep under control during a glue-up. A small piece of double-stick tape on between each one and the clamp body solves that problem. These are the reasons why I'm rating the clamps with four stars instead of five; in all other ways, they're excellent.
As for the clamps themselves, they are great performers. The only clamps I've used that surpase them are the Jorgensen brand of parallel clamp, which are a bit sturdier and the mechanism that allows the clamp to come apart to join two together into a longer clamp is a spring-loaded metal device that works much better than the fragile and cumbersome plastic stop on these clamps.
Please dont let the poor shipping decisions factor into your buying decision. Expect for some damage and expect Amazon to go above and beyond to fix the issue. All in all I had to wait about 2 more days to get 36 clamps in good shape. I also forgot to mention that UPS beats the crap out of boxes and hope that Amazon is at least getting some money back from those guys.
As far as the clamps themselves, they are a joy to use and much better then the Jet versions I had before. I hated the extra latch to release tention and love that the new Besseys have larger clamping surfaces and can be extended with the included extenders. Who really uses the bench dog attachement of the Jets anyway?
THE CLAMPS are incredible though. I'd recommend picking them up somewhere (if you can't put up with the shipping issues you can pay full ticker at a local wood working store). They clamp tight and square making lots of previously difficult glueups a snap. I'll likely add more to my arsenal over time.
