SHARK CLAMPS, from Carr Lane Mfg. Co., are manufactured for woodworking, assembly, repairs and general-purpose clamping. The patented heavy duty Shark Clamps have a push-button control to slide the handle in and out to a maximum opening of 5" or 6-1/2", depending on the model. The new clamps are available with either a T-handle (for greater tightening leverage) or a straight handle with optional no-mar rubber pads. The clamps range in price from $17.80 to $20.35.
