      Bar clamp

      Great clamp to have around the house to use as a second pair of hands to help hold things when no one is around. Easy to use squeeze clamp up and release.Good solid quality works just as well as compared to the other manufactures. Nice tool to have.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Good, could be better

      I like it, don't get me wrong. But I think it could have definitely been improved. It doesn't seem as well made as their other clamps. The increments could be smaller to give it a better grip, and it just seems to be wobbly.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      12" Clamp

      This product isn't as good as the old Craftman 12" Clamps I purchase years ago.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Good, but not a Great Clamp

      I purchased an earlier version of this clamp from Sears about 12 years ago. This new clamp is heaver, and in general, a more substantial clamp. That said, the portion of the clamp with the grips does not move smoothly when you try to reposition it -- it tends to bind, making it difficult to adjust. Once in position, the clamp tightens well, and the coated handles are easy on the hands.

      Good But Not Tough

      As a woodworking instructor and retired contractor, I like these clamps, but with average hand strength, these clamps can be easily overtightened and the tightening mechanism broken. When I purchased these clamps, I thought they would be covered by the standard Craftsman hand tool warrant.....Wrong...The warranty is good for only one year. However, with moderate use, they are a good clamp.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftsman 12 in. Bar Clamp is Cool

      It's amazing how easy this thing is to use (I've been told it takes little to amuse myself). You just slide the main part of the clamp up to whatever you are clamping and squeeze. It's that easy. Or, you could press the red button on the other end, swap ends with it, and use it as a pusher. I've never had a clam so easy to use. Thank you, Craftsman!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftsman Bar Clamps are Easy and fun to use

      I own this clamp, a 6 inch and a 36 inch. You can never have enough clamps for your project. My best advice, is to spend the extra cash on ones like this. I hate having to twist and twist clamps just to find out that I over or undertightened them. This one is full proof. You pull on the release, slide to your clamp size, and tighten the trigger. Done! No more mared wood. The clamp has a rubber grip, and the jaws are deep enough for what I want to clamp together.

      I have used this clamp with framing when I need that quick extra hand to hold up a 2x4. It is super fast and easy.

      What makes this clamp stand out as different from other clamps is the ability to be used as a spreader. You push the button to realease the head, pop it on the other side, and you are ready to go.

      I can't recomend this enough, it is a great tool to have.

      Craftsman 12 in. Bar Clamp is well constructed

      As a woodworking instructor and tool geek, I highly recommend this clamp.

      The pad pieces are reversible to use on both outside and inside clamping positions.

      And there is the Craftsman lifetime replacement warranty.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
