  • Q What is the difference between "horizontal" clamp and "vertical" clamp? In the photos, they look like they function identically.

    A The key difference is the position of the handle when the clamp is locked. A horizontal clamp has the handle position horizontally (parallel with the base) when the clamp is locked. A vertical clamp has the handle positioned vertically (perpendicular to the base) when clamped. The intended use you have will decide which you should buy, but be ware that some vertical clamps have a slightly smaller opening range than horizontal ones. Check the specs!

    You should prefer vertical clamps if you are making a jig to be used on a table saw, because the horizontal clamps might have their handles interfere with the fence on the saw.
    Conversely, if you were going to use the clams on an assembly table, you might prefer the horizontal clamps, because the vertical ones might get in the way by sticking up. (Also, vertical might interfere with a scroll saw, while horizontal might interfere with a drill press or miter saw.) 


    You can mount the horizontal clamp in a vertical position or the vertical clamp in the horizontal position. 
    A horizontal clamp closes or applies pressure in the flat position or with the handle horizontal to the clamp. Vertical clamps when closed the handle points up to the sky.

  • Q Is this toggle clamp rated for Welding temperatures as a fixture?

    A Normally It has a rubber-like hold down foot and a plastic handle. Those would melt at welding temps. Take off the rubber foot and if your weld is far enough away from the clamp, it might do. Best to use a welding clamp.

    Although this is a fairly heavy duty clamp it has some rubber parts on it that may begin to melt as the metal parts get hot. This is more suited for use as a woodworkers clamp on a jig for drilling or glue set up.
  • Q Can the bolt easily be replaced with a longer bolt to extend to a deeper holding surface?

    A You could replace the bolt with a longer one but the rubber end is melted (permanently attached) to the provided bolt. If you got a longer bolt you would want to have something similar to add to the end. If you didn't get the same size you would also need to replace the nuts.
  • Q Is the length of stroke travel of the push pull adjustable?

    A
    Only via where you mount it, otherwise no. Mount it higher or lower if needed.

  • Q Does this toggle clamp need much force to lock and unlock? Easy enough for a girl?

    A
    I installed a Jointech GH-40334 latch on an upright freezer door that would not seal securely. I adjusted the force needed to open and close the latch to be light enough for my wife to use it with no difficulty.I installed a Powertec 20306 latch on an upright freezer door that would not seal securely.

  • Q What is the correct way of preserving pneumatic/hydraulic clamps?

    A To help preserve the oil seal, please make sure to avoid direct sunlight and avoid putting the clamps at a dusty environment. (The preserving temperature should be around 41°F to 77°F, and not over 77°F. We recommend keeping the humidity level at below 70% to avoid the environment being too humid or too dry)
