Irwin Quick-Grip 18" Quick-Change Bar Clamp
my old Irwin quick clamp broke yesterday, but I have had it over ten years so it had done a lot of work. so looked on screwfix website and got these at a great saving, cheaper than my last two, and the next size larger to boot. slightly different in bar design but so far no troubles, I expect these to last just as long , Irwin are quality, and screwfix had them at a great price. thanks, screwfix!!!

i use these all the time. they do break if you over-load them, and i once bought one that was already jammed shut, but this was replaced without hassle. always worth having a few of them in the shed.

Poor design - failed first use
Bought a pair of these. The release mechanism sometimes worked - sometimes not. You could close the clamp but not open it. I carefully lubricated with WD40 silicone.
Then when clamping glued work, one refused to let ago. Eventually it did, but the trigger handled detatched itself. Now that is jammed solid.
Am returning both and will try the XP version.
But my pair of Irwin mini 12inch clamps are working fine.
