QUICK-GRIP PIPE CLAMPS, from Irwin Tools, feature a clutch system that eliminates the need for threaded pipe.
The clamps feature larger feet for more stability and clearance between the handle and workpiece; an ergonomic handle and larger clutch plates for easier release, according to the company. The clamps are available for 3/4” and 1/2” pipe. Contact: Irwin Tools. Tel: 800-464-7946. www.irwintools.com
