Description

The Stackable Clamping System is the dream of every woodworker who prefers to keep a neat, organized workspace! Rather than scrambling around your shop to find space for your clamped pieces to dry, why not keep them in a single, clutter-free stack?!

Keeps Components Handy: Arrange glued pieces in any order as you build up your stack . . . any piece can be loosened and removed as needed without disturbing the rest of the stack (or swapped out at a middle level with a new piece, for that matter). Perfect for complicated projects with many glued components!
R&R Clamps tighten with a common 3/4" socket. Check out the Accessories Page of our online store for drill/driver adapters or hand cranks, for the more tactilely-inclined.

Always Square and Secure: The Stackable System snaps into two low-profile alignment bars that are squared up and fastened directly to the workspace. When you're not clamping, the strips are thin enough to stay out of your way so the space remains open and usable!

WOOD magazine review

The sky, er, ceiling's the limit with these stackable panel clamps

Review Summary

It’s like when someone first figured out the solution to overcrowded parking in a city: Go vertical. That’s what the makers of R&R Clamp have done with their unique stackable clamps. With space always at a premium in home and professional workshops, this clamping system allows you to glue up and clamp multiple assemblies by stacking them like floors of a parking garage.
Here’s how the system works: First, you screw two alignment bars to a plywood base, making sure to keep them parallel to each other. Then, when you attach two clamps onto these bars (at any of the multiple mounting slots), they’re dead-on square every time. Glue up your workpieces, place them between the jaw clamps, and then tighten using your drill and a 3/4" socket and adapter (included). To stack clamps simply place them on top of each other as you align the interlocking position pins. Besides being able to clamp up more assemblies in a limited benchtop space, I found that by the time I got six panels glued and stacked the bottom one was ready to take out. I loosened the bottom clamps and removed that panel without disturbing any of the others. Then, I glued up another panel and put it into that one’s place. Don’t use excess glue or it will drip onto panels below. Or, place wax paper between layers. —Tested by Steve Feeney
