Item THT1340602 300mm (12”) Ratchet Bar Clamp from Total
Heavy duty 300mm (12 inches) forged carbon steel ratchet bar clamp, mainly used for clamping pieces of wood while joining with glue or fastening with screws.
Suitable for joining small to medium sized work pieces, such as boxes and drawers, from 0-300mm / 0-12” in length.
Consists of a fixed jaw and a lockable movable jaw with a trigger and a quick release button that, when pressed, freely slides the jaw to any position.
Can be used both as a spreader or as a clamping device. Convert from clamp to spreader by simply re-orienting fixed jaw on opposite end of bar.
Trigger-operated ratchet action applies precise and consistent pressure, while the durable plastic resin body features minimal distortion and movement.
Fitted with soft jaw plates for protecting the work piece. It still is recommended, though, to insert a thin scrap of wood between the work piece and the jaws on both sides, for added protection and leverage.
Black-finished heat-treated rail bar is 18.5 mm wide x 6mm thick, tough enough for most basic home improvement jobs.
Best for wood working joinery, particularly for securely holding while curing glued joints.
