What Is A Bar Clamp?

Aubuchon Hardware Tip: Bar clamps rely on the tightness of the hand screw for the "final pressure". If you have difficulty applying the right pressure due to an injury or hand discomfort, try switching to a one-handed bar clamp that uses a pistol grip for loosening and tightening. Always use the proper clamp size for the job to prevent overloading a smaller clamp. It's easier on the hands, too!
