  1. I have two of these and used them a lot when building a birdhouse with my kiddo. Held up like champs. Can't imagine why yours are fracturing so easily. Faulty clamps, or sabotage.

  2. Chinese engineering is somewhat of a crap shoot. Our liability laws make things more expensive but also safer and better quality. But I'm generalizing here.

  3. I have these same exact clamps, I have used them and HAMMERED on them and they are awesome. I find it very odd that you have 2 and both failed… hmmm I smell a rat

  4. I tested all 4 that I purchased at the store b/4 buying. They were fine .
    The Irwin or yellow brand are a little nicer to use, like driving a Caddy vs Chevy, but cost is 1/4. I now have 4 each.

  5. Sounds like you got a bad batch. I have a couple of these and they work great.. They are light duty clamps so i dont death grip them but i do similar to you and mine are ok. I make sure not to apply too much pressure and if i need more clamp pressure i use the F style clamps. So ur vid was from 2015 and its 2018 and mine seem okay so again maybe it was a shitty batch?

  6. These are hobby clamps. Great for model building not wood working. I personally own these in various lengths. For my woodworking I use a different set all together not these less expensive ones.

  7. This style of clamp if not meant for high amounts of pressure. They are meant to be as another set of hands. If you want something that is going to really put the squeeze on something you need to buy the F style with the “screw” handle. Granted it would be nice if these didn’t break but you spent a dollar and didn’t use the tool as intended. So who is really to blame here?
