"I bought a set of these for my son when he was working on an old Boston Whaler. Used them for a second & thrd set of hands. He liked them so much I bought a set also. The are very high quality and really do work as another "helper" when working alone."

5 piece c-clamps

May 9, 2012
By HandyMatt
from Benton Harbor, MI
"I use the c-clamps for holding metal stock before welding or bolting pieces together. They work excellent. Strong enough to even help bend 1/8" steel into place. You can never have enough clamps when you really need them. Especially when dealing with longer stock. Love the pivoting wide ends too. Great price for 5 clamps."

"I can always use the extra "hand" holding something in place while welding. They are not designed to withstand too much pressure, but for the price they are a great buy."

"Absolutely required item for the shop. Especially handy for welding. Only complaint is that the wide round clamp head gets in the way on thinner materials, but that same round head prevents damage to softer materials so pick your poison ;)"

Good price, good quality

By TrebuchetMetal
from TX
"These clamps are great for the price. Not quite the smooth action you get with Irwin Vise-grips, but still works well and clamps work pieces well. Mine have taken quite a beating - I use them when welding and grinding and they are still going strong. Even slag on the threads didn't stop these clamps - the slag eventually popped off after some working back and forth of the threaded end and the clamps are no worse for it. Good deal!"

"I find that when doing face frame construction and use my Kreg pocket hole joinery system; these swivel headed, non-marring, vice grip clone locking pliers work great to hold wood tight & parallel during assembly. For the great price you get a whole bunch of them!"

Your money's worth

By Studiokes
"One out of five of the set came with a broken spring. I'm sure I could have exchanged it, but I had the part lying around and it wouldn't have been worth the effort. That aside, these welding clamps lock as affirmatively as any others, and for a fraction of the price. Not top of the line, but good for the cost."

Clamp Set

""It is what it is" would be the way I would describe these welding clamps. I bought them just to hold together metal during welding and if they do that for just a few times, still worth the sale cost.
If you want Vise Grip quality, pay for Vise Grips. These aren't, but are definitely a good value.
