Amazon.com

As its name implies, the Handi-Clamp is a handy tool to have around when you need to hold a work piece securely in place while working on it. The lightweight clamp squeezes into place easily and holds fast. Non-marring pads grip the work surface tightly, without damaging it. And a quick-release trigger on the handle makes it easy to remove or readjust the clamp as needed--no screwing, twisting, or tightening, just squeeze and clamp down. A larger, 4-inch version of the Handi-Clamp is available for clamping thicker materials, too. Rule number one in a workshop: You can't have too many clamps. --Carl Thress

I have several of these clamps purchased in the late 90's when they were marketed by American Tool Companies. They have been fantastic clamps and are the first clamps that I reach for when working on small projects.

I recently purchased some of the newer Irwin Mini Quick-Grip clamps, which seemed identical to the old ones except for the blue color. Unfortunately, the pistol grip trigger on the newer Irwin clamps does not engage the bar until it has been depressed about half way. The trigger on my older clamps engages immediately and advances the bar much further for each squeeze. In searching through the clamps on display at a local store, I found that the trigger action varied considerably. I was able to find a pair that worked reasonably well, but not nearly as well as my older American Tool Mini Quick-Grips.

The bar on the newer Irwin clamps also seems to be made of a softer steel. The locking mechanism leaves a groove in the bar each time the clamp is locked securely. The bars on my old clamps are still perfectly smooth after years of use.

I bought mine to hold shop-made jigs in place while routing and sawing. They are very convenient to use. The jaw has a maximum opening of about 2", but to get a really tight grip, about an 1 1/2" thick or less works best. I always keep the black release lever on the top handle if I can. Two of these will hold a jig very tightly. The rubber pads will not mar your workpiece or slip.
I have modified a few of my jigs by gluing 400 grit sandpaper to the bottom of the jig with spray-on contact cement so they grip the workpiece better. One finger will release even the tightest grip by pulling up in the black release lever. They are so much easier to use than "C" clamps or even larger Vise Grip bar clamps, which both have to be operated from below the table to assure a lower profile in your work area.
These are tough little clamps that you will find new uses for whenever you're in the shop. Get several - you don't want to end up "one clamp short of a set-up."

I like these much better than the spring clamps we all use. It exerts more pressure with an easier release than a spring clamp of similar size. Just squeeze to lock it and it stays put. I used a couple the other day to hold a straight edge for routing dado's. I cut 3/4 x 1/2 deep runs with no slippage from the clamps. When I was done with each one I just squeezed the release and went on to the next . Lickety split. Nice idea !

I have several original Quick-Grip Mini bar clamps that I bought in late '90s, early 2000.

On the original Quick-Grip Mini bar clamps, the two pads are very close to be parallel - the clamping force is therefore uniform; as it should be.

Now, today's Quick-Grip bar clamp are made by Irwin and the quality is not the same. The two pads are not parallel anymore. The tips of the pads contact each other first - the clamping force is not uniform. I cannot use them on my woodworking projects.

The original Quick-Grip Mini bar clamps made by American Tool Companies in the USA were of high quality.

Today's Quick-Grip bar clamps are made by Irwin in China, they look similar to the original Quick-Grip, but the quality is just not there.

The best way to describe this clamps is...It's like a "c clamp you dont have to thread up and down. Just a quick squeeze and poof, your locked down.The release can be done with one finger, how simple is that?A spring clamp of this size would take some real brawn to line up and clamp. Not this one people, it's as easy as squeezing toothpaste from a tube.It wont rust or leave those c clamp dimples we all hate.It' plenty big,wont mar your work and the jaw ends pivot for a good fit.Way to go American Tool, this ones a hit.I cant wait to see whats next.Now get out there and clamp away.

These clamps are very quick to apply and release but due to the lack of mechanical advantage, the distance from the pivot to the clamps is virtually the same as the distance from the pivot to the end of the handles, you cannot apply much more than hand pressure to the work. These may work fine for clamping the work while glue sets up or for stabilizing a router guide or some other task that does not require a lot of pressure but cannot compare to C-clamps or Vice grips in holding power. I bought 3 of these things for use in an industrial environment to clamp stops in a vertical boring machine but they would slip at the slightest impact, no matter how hard I tried to clamp them. As I pointed out, the problem seems to be the lack of mechanical advantage in clamping. The design simply will not allow you to hold any item tighter than you can hold it with your hand. In applications where you need another hand to hold something, they are probably just fine, and just that, another hand.

I picked up a couple of these on a whim while running errands at the Borg. Seemed like a handy and simple idea. I have tried to use them quite a few times but have yet to find anything at which they excel. They actually clamp with less pressure than your hand can exert. The ratchet slips often, especially when you happen to pick up the clamp with it on the top handle. The rotating pads are more of a hassle than an advantage. They often rotate out of position, making it more of a 3 hand clamp than a 1 hand clamp, and also make the clamps essentially unusable on round objects.
Buy large spring clamps instead. They cost less, clamp harder, and work more reliably.
I am a real fan of Quik Grip clamps, so this worthless product really took me by surprise. They need to pull it off the market.
