this can only be used once PER STORE, so it will not work for delivery on Lowes.com, but you can place an order online for in-store pickup, assuming it hasn't been used at the pickup location already.

Home Depot had a 12 pack of these clamps for 19.99 Last night when I went to the store in Redmond, WA. Was a sale price non clearance item. May be B&M only. On my cell I will have to update later.

Thanks OP, seems like a good deal.

Clamp sizes are: 4 1/4", 6", and 12"

Props to Irwin for admitting they are "Light Duty" on the packaging, when even dollar store items are labeled as Heavy Duty these days.

Does make me wander if there's a huge difference in practical application between 100 ft/lbs (these) and 150 ft/lbs (normal ones)? Could I break these with my hands by over-clamping?



Edit: from this website [topendsports.com] it seems Average male hand strength is 100 ft/lbs. Excellent is >141 ft/lbs. Thus if know you have pretty strong hands, you would need to be gentle with these not to break them.

They don't solve every clamping problem I've had, but these come in handy all the time. They often save the day working in situations where nothing else would.

This deserves to be front page. Great deal.

You need to spend $49 or more to get free shipping.

I've busted the Harbor Freight one's. Just don't over torque these, and they should be fine. Nothing beats the old wood/metal screw clamps, but these are much faster. If you're building an oak dinner table, I'd probably invest in something higher end. Otherwise, these are great for most things.

In general anything I buy from Harbor Freight I treat as disposable. If it lasts longer then the project I needed the tool for, then that's bonus.

With tools, you generally get what you pay for.

I paid $12 for digital Calipers from HF that has served me daily (as an engineer) for several years. But for the clamps I also bought from HF, yes I agree; they were trash; totally unreliable.

Not the same set, I prefer the Lowe's set. The smallest pair in the amazon set are pincer-style, where all the sets of the lowe's clamps are pistol grips. In for 1!
