Auto Clamp  - 02 November 2006
Black and Decker Auto Clamp
I was walking through Home Depot today, and spotted this interesting new product from Black and Decker. The Auto Clamp is a 6" C clamp with a powered actuator that will allow a user to position and clamp and object with one hand. The battery powered clamp has a handle with a trigger that allows the user to firmly grip and operate the clamp.
According to B&D, the clamp offers 300 to 500 pounds clamping force, has a 3" throat depth, and can clamp 60 times with 2 AA batteries.
I noticed a small hex wrench attached to the back of the clamp. Apparently it is the manual over ride, which definately would require use of both hands to remove and operate it.
The clamp costs $29.99 from Home Depot. for more information go to:
