    Great design, but newer Irwin version has problems, March 20, 2005

    I have several of these clamps purchased in the late 90’s when they were marketed by American Tool Companies. They have been fantastic clamps and are the first clamps that I reach for when working on small projects.

    I recently purchased some of the newer Irwin Mini Quick-Grip clamps, which seemed identical to the old ones except for the blue color. Unfortunately, the pistol grip trigger on the newer Irwin clamps does not engage the bar until it has been depressed about half way. The trigger on my older clamps engages immediately and advances the bar much further for each squeeze. In searching through the clamps on display at a local store, I found that the trigger action varied considerably. I was able to find a pair that worked reasonably well, but not nearly as well as my older American Tool Mini Quick-Grips.

    The bar on the newer Irwin clamps also seems to be made of a softer steel. The locking mechanism leaves a groove in the bar each time the clamp is locked securely. The bars on my old clamps are still perfectly smooth after years of use.

    Irwin Quick-Grip not as good as the original Quick-Grip, September 2, 2012

    I have several original Quick-Grip Mini bar clamps that I bought in late ’90s, early 2000.

    On the original Quick-Grip Mini bar clamps, the two pads are very close to be parallel – the clamping force is therefore uniform; as it should be.

    Now, today’s Quick-Grip bar clamp are made by Irwin and the quality is not the same. The two pads are not parallel anymore. The tips of the pads contact each other first – the clamping force is not uniform. I cannot use them on my woodworking projects.

    The original Quick-Grip Mini bar clamps made by American Tool Companies in the USA were of high quality.

    Today’s Quick-Grip bar clamps are made by Irwin in China, they look similar to the original Quick-Grip, but the quality is just not there.

    I needed to remove my security screen to install a space filler on the bottom. I didn’t see any way to do this alone till I seen an instruction video using these to mount the door. I never could have done the job alone without these. I then used them on a bathroom door that had split. I took the door down, squeezed in Gorilla Glue and used the clamps to press the crack closed for a couple hours. I love these clamps and I see lots of use in my future home improvement and honey do projects.
