Using "The Right Clamp"™, "The Splice Clamp"™ and "The Combo Right Clamp"™:

  1. First step is to loosen the Brass Thumb Nuts on the Mid Screws.
  2. The End Screws act as rotating studs for adjusting the nut captivated in the end of the Brass Clamping Tube.
  3. Rotate the End Screws to adjust for the thickness of the parts to be clamped.
  4. Insert parts in clamp under Rubber Clamping Pads.
  5. Tighten the Brass Thumb Nuts slightly and adjust the parts until they are in proper alignment.
  6. Notches (rectangular holes) on clamp Base Bars or Base Angle allow access to back side of parts.
  7. Increase tension on Thumb Nuts until parts are held firmly in place.
  8. Apply glue sparingly as needed to wick into seam between parts and let dry.
  9. For wood parts, one of the parts can temporarily be moved out of position to apply the glue.
  10. If desired, a Reinforcing Stiffener of similar material can be added to the seam for extra strength.
  11. Groove (on Splice Clamps) or Chamfer (on Right Clamps) allows clearance behind glue joint.
  12. Aluminum Base Bars and Base Angles are coated with Silicone to help prevent parts from being accidentally glued to them.
  13. When glue is dry the Thumb Nuts can be loosened and the assembled part removed.
