Quick-Grip clamps

Quick-Grip clamps

Nebraska boat-builder Joe Sorensen needed a third hand to hold assemblies during glue-ups, so he came up with a one-handed bar clamp that today we know as the Quick-Grip clamp. Joe sold his invention to a manufacturer whose brands were eventually acquired by Irwin Industrial Tools. The clamps debuted in 1989 to the delight of countless woodworkers, and spawned legions of similar clamps.

i have 25-30 of these clamps in various sizes, like the clamps, but once you lose one of the rubber pads, good luck finding a replacement.
