It does the job, it will wear off but for the price you can buy a bunch of this and be good, definitely a must if you are working with lights/backgrounds/etc

Bought 50 of Bessey's 1 1/4 spring clamps to secure my sound blankets. The rubber grips on the clips were so loose some of them slipped off inside the box during shipping. You'll have to buy a bottle of superglue to glue all the rubber bits on yourself, otherwise they will slip off constantly and you will have to crawl around on your hands and knees looking for where they fell. I was disappointed to find the jaws on these clips were slightly smaller than my Pony 3201 woodworking clips, which are of equivalent or superior quality. (They can also be purchased for roughly the same price and do not require you to glue the rubber grips on.) These complaints aside, once I glued the Bessey clamps I found them to be sturdy, strong and reliable. The spring provides plenty of pressure and the black color makes them much more appealing for production work than the orange Pony clips.

Exactly what I payed for!

The plastic grips slip off easily but after super glueing them onto the metal I have had no problems with these clips in any weather or wind conditions.

Strong Clamp -- Exceeds Expectations

By Robert

Maybe I don't have much experience with clamps, but I'm surprised by the strength of the spring in this one. If you didn't know, 1 1/4 is the width the jaws of the clamp expand... if you have the hand strength to open them that wide. Unless I _really_ try, I can only open the clamp about 1 inch; it takes extra effort to get it open all the way, which is a pro, rather than a con, when you are talking about something that it supposed to clamp securely onto something else. The reason I deducted a star is because the little rubber sleeves slide off the clamp easily, especially on the tips that do the clamping. I managed to lose one under some furniture while removing the clamp from something. I found it quickly, but it's not hard to imagine losing one for good out in the field.

Just as good as an A-Clamp can be

Totally expected, and lives up to it's reputation. No problems with it at all.

question

Are these as good as the Pony 3201 USA-made clamps? The ones B&H discontinued. These look a bit cheap.
