Automaxx Bar Clamps provide perhaps the fastest closing action of any bar clamp. No need to wind a screw or pump a trigger-simply slide the clamp faces together, squeeze the handles, and the clamp locks on with a reassuring "thunk." Pressure is easily adjusted-up to 550 lbs-with the thumb screw, and once set, stays the same no matter what the size of your workpiece. Of course, you also get all the benefits inherent to a standard F-style clamp. When you want the consistent, repeatable pressure of the Automaxx mechanism, but need more clamping capacity, look no further than Automaxx Bar Clamps. Also available in a range of Heavy-Duty models (e.g. 52893) with more pressure (700 lbs) and a larger 2-7/8'' throat depth.
