The Dewalt 30" clamp inverts current hand-held bar clamp designs. By reversing the motion of the grip and the moving plate through a ratchet track and segmented belt, the clamp works with the human body, to clamp down the user pushes down rather than pulling up. The ratchet underneath the grip locks the clamp in place until the trigger is pulled, creating a safe, swift, and secure clamp. In addition, the fine adjustment grip has been moved to the top panel, providing higher torque to the user. Finally, the clamp can accommodate curved objects due to the 4 springs on the main plate.
