"The Right Clamp"™ - Specifications

The following is "The Right Clamp"™ guideline, but as with any tool, they should be matched to the size of the job. You should choose which Right Clamp™ to order by comparing the parts to be assembled to the jaw length of the clamps. Larger clamps can be used for smaller jobs within reason. Two smaller clamps, one at each end, can be used instead of one larger clamp.
