Video Review of the Irwin XP Quick Grip Clamp

Testing the Irwin XP Quick Grip Clamp

This tool is incredible! With very little pressure at all we were able to clamp, not just square timber but round pipes, odd shaped off cuts and pretty much anything that we needed to keep still! The adjustable jaws allowed the clamp to tighten round the most angular shapes giving complete control over the piece we were trying to work on.

Other Special Features on the XP Quick Grip Clamp

Another great feature about this set of clamps is the depth of the range. They start at 6 inches (150mm) then go to 12 inches (300mm) then 18 inches (450mm) then 24 inches (600mm) then 36 inches (1050mm) and finally a giant 50 inch version gives 1.250 metres of claming action.

There is also a tiny little sliding foot on the bar of the clap which allows the clamp to be stood on the workbench while the piece of work can be dropped into it - very handy! This is a great feature as those who are regularly at a woodworking bench will know.
