Armor Auto-Adjust toggle clamps automatically adjust for different thicknesses of material, eliminating the need to readjust the clamp when changing stock. Whether you're clamping a standard piece of 3/4'' stock or a thin sheet of veneer, one flip of the lever is all it takes to secure your work. The clamp applies downward pressure, making it ideal for workbenches, jigs and fixtures-anything you would use a hold-down clamp for. When closed, it maintains a horizontal orientation so it won't obstruct your work. Clamping force is easily adjustable-simply rotate the adjustment screw to increase or decrease the pressure. Once set, it stays the same for all thicknesses-just set it and forget it. The threaded post allows additional adjustment range when needed. Auto-Adjust: Armor's Auto-Adjust technology automatically adjusts to variations in workpiece dimensions while maintaining consistent clamping pressureAdjustable Clamping Pressure: The integrated adjustment screw is used to create a wide range of clamping pressures. Rotate the screw clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase the clamping forceStrong, Lightweight: Auto Clamps are constructed of ZAMAK Zinc alloy, which allows for an incredibly strong, lightweight toolOne-Handed Operation: Armor's Auto-Pro AutoClamps are designed for one-handed operation, a huge advantage over the competitionHorizontal Base Plate: Horizontal plate features adjustable mounting holes on the base plate to accommodate most standard toggle mounting patternsLarge Soft-Grip Handle: Features soft insets for maximum grip and comfort
The first criterion for this project was "They have to surpass the kind you can buy ready-made at the home-supply center." To do that, we specified better stock, requested a cleaner, trimmer look, designed a more positive means of opening the louvers than the center-mounted, staple-connected adjusting rod, and demanded construction procedures that didn't require unusual tools or complex jigs and fixtures. We improve on the basic stapled design and simplify the building process.
