Introduced a new generation bar clamp the Alpha Clamp. This patented tool is made in the United States; each tool is personally inspected for defects and has a lifetime guarantee with it.
Invented out of necessity, the inventor was frustrated from working in the cramped V-berth of a sailboat using standard bar clamp. He was so dissatisfied by those clamps' limited throat depth, strength, and overall usefulness that he invented the Alpha-Clamp, which uses two bars instead of one.
The long 18-inch lower bar works just like a standard clamp: squeezing the handle pulls the bar tight pulling the trigger releases it. The Alpha-Clamp's extra bar moves independently in two-inch increments when you push a button, giving users up to a 12-inch throat depth (the span between the pads), something you'd get only in a much heavier, much more expensive C-clamp.
Both of these bars are removable and reversible, so the clamp can be used for spreading, jacking, and hoisting operations up to 33 inches. The Alpha-Clamp has 4 brakes, double the number used by a other manufactures, so there's no fade in the holding power on loads up to 250+ pounds.
The lower bar is stamped with a standard ruler on one side and metric on the other, and the jaw has been fitted with a horizontal and vertical level.
The Alpha-Clamp has been described as an impressive new kind of clamp by Steve Ashley, building superintendent in Big Sky Montana.
To call it a clamp does not describe it’s full potential, “It feels more like a machine” when you hold it in your hand you know it’s a real tool made in America. David Forsberg an industrial equipment manufacturer in Thief River Falls, MN.
