I found that with the center plate that screws in toward the stiles to bring the edges flush, if you don't have the backs of the cabinets shimmed and screwed at least part of the way, they pull the right and left edges of the stiles around toward you.
So I ended up using both my wooden clamps and the Claws and that worked nicely. I would buy them again, but they are not a cure-all for my cabinet hanging headaches. They certainly are the most innovative design anyone has come up with in a long time!
The pros say the best way is to level, plumb and attach wall cabinets to each other, then lift and hang them as a single unit. This works well if you have skilled helpers or an electric cabinet lift. I had neither, so I hung them one at a time with one helper, a set of Pony clamps, and a T-Jak. First I screwed a ledger to the wall, then lifted one cabinet at a time onto the ledger, then held it in place with a T-Jak. The T-Jak is invaluable for leveling them in place, and holding them securely while you shim and fuss and get everything lined up. Then I clamped the face frames together with the Pony clamps and got them all perfect. Then drove in the screws to attach the cabinets to the wall studs, and then last of all drive in the face frame screws. I took off one star because the Pony clamps have drill guides for your face frame pilot holes, but they're a bit sloppy so you still have to drill carefully to get the right angle.
Another thing to be careful of-- they come with felt pads so they don't scar your face frames, but they are heavy and the outer edges will ding your shelves or whatever surface you put them on if you dump them carelessly.
Always hang wall cabinets first, before the base cabinets. I've seen howtos that show hanging the wall cabinets after the base cabinets are in place, and they are deceiving because they don't show how this makes it a hundred times harder. Unless you are seven feet tall with four super-strong ape arms.
Since hiring a pro to install my cabinets would have cost about $2000 it was well worth buying the Pony Clamps and T-Jak. Then I sold them for 75% of what I paid for them. Even if I hadn't sold them they paid for themselves many times over.
To be blunt and to the point, my tired old 150 pound, 62 year old body could not
have produced professional results without these. Using these in conjunction with 2
fast caps enabled me to eliminate any and all mistakes. You can not drive a screw in crooked
with these, the design will not let you. They enabled me to line up, level and plump
all my cabinets like an old world pro.
I can not stress enough just how important these clamps are for producing professional
results. They are worth twice the price and then some. Buy these things and you will be
forever happy that you did.
The only other thing you'll need is a drill bit made for the pilot hole.
A must have.
Mine were purchased over a year ago hopefully the manufacturer has changed the design of this fragile part.

Maybe they have different sizes, not sure, didn't quite fit the narrower stiles of my cabinets. Was able to make work basically by using shims along with these clamps.Published 3 months ago by Stayfair

I just installed ~25 cabinets: uppers, lowers and pantries. The clamps worked very well. They tightened very well and never slipped. The 2 way clamping worked very well. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Michael Schiff
