I think the proper usage goes something like this: 1.

I bought this a while ago and while it sounds like a great idea, it just doesn't work very well.
Enhydra Lutris
To say that the clamping is slow is an exaggeration of the speed.

Get this: going from fully open to fully closed takes *5 minutes and 24 seconds*. That is not a joke. I was so disappointed by how slow it was, I just had to time it. By the time it completed, the batteries were so weak it hardly had any clamping force left. Even if you use the quick slide button to close it on what you're clamping, it still takes 12 seconds to reach full pressure and another 12 to release it when you're done.
I really thought this would be handy for when I've got my hands full holding two or three things I'm trying to clamp. I could just grab this tool, hold it in place, press the button, and be done. But no, the quick slide feature only works when it's held in the vertical position. Any other angle and it takes two hands to operate.

Other problems: It's not even a proper C-clamp, it's stamped steel and plastic. It's surprisingly heavy for how weak the motor is. The battery compartment is held closed with a tiny black screw. Don't lose it or else you'll have to duct tape it to keep it closed.

I can't fathom what they were thinking when they decided to actually sell this thing. They even knew it doesn't have enough clamping force. It comes with a little wrench tucked into the side so when the motor gives out, you can pull out the wrench, stick it in a hole in the top and tighten it the rest of the way.

I think the proper usage goes something like this:
1. While holding your workpiece with one hand, grasp the AutoClamp and position it in the desired clamping location.
2. Press the quick clamp button, lean over and slide the screw with your chin, forehead, or knee.
3. Now press the tighten button and wait while the screw is tightened. Be patient.

I bought this a while ago and while it sounds like a great idea, it just doesn't work very well. It is battery powered and is REALLY slow and weak. So, you pretty much need to adjust it by hand to where it is all but clamped to begin with. So, I guess it works, but I don't use it at all because it is just too weak.

Verified Purchase
I bought 4 of these things. The batteries that came with them are not that great, so I replaced them with Duracell Alkalines. They are slow as the gear ratio is low. That's where the strength comes from. Contrary to some of the other reviews they are strong, and contrary to the B&D info they will mar the finish on soft wood if you crank them too tight (even with the rubber feet). They'll hold the earth on fresh batteries. I bought 4 heavy duty 3V3 Wall Mount Power Packs and modified them with heavy guage wire about 8 feet long. I then wired the Power Packs into the clamp battery compartment and made them wall powered rather than battery powered. Now I use them exclusively. No more manual C-Clamps for me except little small ones for tight places. You need to keep the shafts lightly oiled. Like any tool, maintanence is important.

1. This tool will produce 500 pounds of pressure, due to the high gear ratio
2. The slow speed was due to the marketing department wanting to make sure that someone didn't inadvertently clamp their own hand if it was too fast, thus the slow speed. A female marketing individual was in charge of the final "handle" because it was too large for her hand. The result of women designing tools for men, and never using them.
3. The quick slide button is to allow the shaft to come within a 1/16" or so before powered clamp is used
4. This tool makes a three handed tool (standard c clamp) into a two handed tool by eliminating the top shaft crank handle
5. The allen wrench is to release a clamp that has been left on a piece of work with a low battery.
6. The Chinese batteries supplied with the unit cost B&D $.01 each, and are junk. When I designed the tool, it was tested with Duracells. "Intellectuals" that rate the tool with the Chinese batteries have proved their intellect or lack of same.
7. The tool is useful to pull parts together over a distance, and will pry parts apart also.
8. This tool especially great for pushing disk brack pistons back when replacing brake pads. Bet you never thought of that.
9. Pulling large pipe clamp joints together is another good use.
10. It works good as a weld clamp when the rubber feet are removed.
11. With all of its shortcomings according to the experts, it fulfills a function that someone that hass a weaker grip needs, is still lighter than a similar sized steel clamp (also made in China) and has more durable parts. Since I recieved the patent, I have used it in other industries including the Army military, the Aircraft and Defense industries.
12. This is the reason they have never awarded a patent to a critic. How about coming up with more uses instead of negative comments? Too many video games?
