Rated 4 out of 5Â by RTJDeckandFence Good clamps
This was an emergency purchase as the heads on both of my 4' Faithful brand sash clamps broke under the force or pulling two boards together for a biscuit joint...
these clamps feel solid and didn't even break a sweat when i clamped them as tight as i could go.
as previously mentioned by another reviewer "WIPE THE GREASE OFF"...
great product at a great price

Nice solid clamps - but be aware of the preserving grease/oil that is on the clamps. Clean this off before use as it gets on your work. Easy to use. screws work well, will buy some more soon as you can never have enough clamps!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Sandhurst Ok, but dirty
This is a recommended product, but only just. The clamps work fine, but mine we're covered in black grease and this took some cleaning off. Even when cleaned the clamps left grease marks everywhere. I now have black marks on my timber which will require sanding off. Spirits doesn't clean off all the marks. Only buy of you have plenty of time or don't mind the mess.
That aside the clamps are robust and work well. They are easy to operate, but then they are only clamps so how hard can it be. The only tricky part I found was when I wanted to add a spacer block in between the clamp and my wood to avoid clamp marks on the timber. Getting everything aligned and in place requires an extra hand so this bit can be fiddly.
On the whole not bad, but at 20 quid for a pretty basic bit of kit these are a little pricey.
