Craftsman Band Clamp

Review Summary

Craftsman’s easy-to-use band clamp has a one-handed ratcheting mechanism (with rubber overmolded handles) that frees up your other hand to adjust the corner blocks as you tighten it. The 16'-long nylon band pulls out easily when depressing the release button, and automatically locks when let go. The band’s metal end hooks onto a magnetic rod that prevents the hook from coming loose while setting it up.
The corner blocks adjust from 60° to 180°, but we wish Craftsman would sell extra blocks for clamping up projects with more than four corners.
