Irwin’s Quick Grip clamps are some hardy well built clamps. We dig the overall rugged construction and the ease of operation that they represent, but when we saw the Quick Grip “micro” clamps, we thought Irwin had lost their mind. Upon second inspection, though, they look pretty handy.
The Micro clamps are built with the same steel backbone that their larger brethren have as well as the same pump trigger mechanism; it’s all just much smaller and more condensed. The bar allows for an 8” spread which makes for a lot of utility in a small tool.
We’re not saying that we’re going to run out and start using them for major woodworking projects, but they might prove valuable to those looking for a powerful hobby clamp or a small project contender.
Street pricing starts at $12 for a set of 2.
