Cabinet installation can be a bear, but this clamp set makes it more than bearable. The unique design is like another pair of hands that grip while you align and tighten the stiles, pre-drill and fasten, and the clamps stay put through the entire process. We like the professional quality: lightweight but rugged aluminum claws and alignment plates, protective rubber pads that won’t mar your work, 1/2-inch diameter zinc-plated, cold-drawn steel screws with smooth Acme threads. The plastic handles even have grooves for a great grip. These clamps will work with stiles from 1-1/2 to 2 inches wide and up to an impressive 1-1/2 inches thick. We think it’s well worth the price if you’re working alone, whether you’re a professional or a home do-it-yourselfer.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

The cabinet claw clamps by pony are probably the most innovative kitchen cabinet installation tool on the market. These clamps make aligning cabinet stiles fairly simple with the perpendicular adjustment. They are very rigid and can often be your only support when hanging wall cabinets. A nice feature is they come with rubber padding to protect the cabinets. If you do kitchen installations like I do, you must have these clamps. They are well worth the fifty dollars.

These work well for hanging cabinets and make short work out of alignment. My only critisism is the pin (a rolled piece os steel that holds the two pieces of the clamp together at the screw) repeatedly came out of the hole and allows the clamp to separate. This has happened to both clamps and has been remedied by opening the cylinder with a nail set and redriving it back into the hole. They are always in my tool box and they are used heavily as I am a cabinet maker.If they fix the pin with a threaded hole and pin with a screw thread on the end I would have given it a 5+. I will buy another set in the future.

I read so many great things about these clamps, and the concept looked so good, I guess I expected more out of them than was really fair. They do hold the stiles together, but then so do my wooden Jorgensens. Most of the cabinets I install are in houses with walls that are not plumb or square, and I constantly have to shim to make them look good.

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!

I lost my mind and decided I could install my new kitches cabinets myself. 23, count 'em, 23 total. I made some mistakes, but overall I am pleased and they look good, and I am pretty sure they won't fall off the walls. Not anytime soon.

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.

I recently remodeled my kitchen and installed 8 wall cabinets and 6 base cabinets.
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.

Have you ever tried to install kitchen cabinets? How about by yourself? Uh huh. If you have then the brilliance of these clamps will be obvious. I wish I had invented them. You not only pull the cabinets together tight, but you are able to get the faces (stiles) even (flush).
The only other thing you'll need is a drill bit made for the pilot hole.
A must have.

Worked well until the plastic wing which swings in and out of place for hole drilling and screw placement cracked. Once cracked a few more uses and it sheared sending a little ball bearing and spring into outerspace.

Mine were purchased over a year ago hopefully the manufacturer has changed the design of this fragile part.
