Bessey
Works Big in Small Spaces
 
The rail-mounted handle is now offset from the point of contact and allows a wider variety of assembly applications in comparison to more traditional clamps. The GearKlamp reduces or eliminates the need for awkward glue-up workarounds. The BESSEY GearKlamp also offers a more compact solution than the classic bar clamp. Broad movements of the clamping arm are done with a quick-adjust button that allows one to get to the right clamping position quickly and productively. The final clamping action is completed by turning the handle, which is uniquely positioned around the rail.
