Door and board carry clamps are designed to clamp onto sheet materials, providing a handle to make them easier to lift and carry.
For both the single- and double-handled carry clamp, when the handle is lifted the clamp closes. Once the clamp is in place the handles are used to carry the sheet.
The clamping pads of carry clamps will firmly grip sheet materials when the handles are lifted.
Gripping arms on carry clamps work in the same was as clamping pads. They come together when the handles are lifted, clamping to the edge of a sheet.
What are the parts of a vice carry clamp?
Vice carry clamps offer a more permanent grip on sheet material. They can be clamp on and left until removed – they don’t just rely on someone lifting the handles.
Vice carry clamps have two handles, which means they can be lifted by one or two people at once. They are foam-coated for a softer grip.
The clamping pads on this carry clamp are longer than on other carry clamps. This means they grip over a larger surface area, making them more secure.
Where other carry clamps grip from the action of lifting the handles, vice carry clamps have screws which are tightened to provide the grip. Once the screws have been tightened they will stay clamped in place until they’re unscrewed.
