I've been making a lot of farm tables lately and I didn't have long enough clamps to glue up the legs to the apron. With the strap clamp, I can clamp up the whole table at once, a great solution. I've only used it once so far but it seems to work well. As far as I can tell, it has the longest strap of any similar clamp and enables me to clamp up a full 8' table. I'll use it for frames, also.

I really like these over bar clamps in squaring anything. They almost auto square things. Its much less of a fight with drawer boxes and doors. Especially anything mitered. I buy pretty much high quality tools and I cant comment on the guys below but my clap is pretty well made. I can see over time in a custom shop with glue getting all over them how they might fail inside. That would take me years to do that however.

I chose Bessey because they make decent clamps. I bought the strap clamp to clamp mitred boxes with four or more sides. The clamp worked very well - but buy a pair to even out clamping pressure over the sides of the box. If buying for clamping picture frames, I guess one clamp would do. I've bought another Bessey Strap Clamp since buying this one. I'm very happy with this product.
