I bought this kit some years ago (>5) and they get pretty dusty between uses. Lower jaw slides when you don't want it to, including when applying pressure. Poorly designed and aggravating to use - can't get the same pressure as with Jet or Bessey. I use when I need ALL my clamps and these are always the last ones I put on because I know I'll need to finesse the fit.
Poorly designed clamps

Poorly designed and aggravating to use, jaws do not release when clamp is loosened. When trying to adjust clamp for use, the sliding jaw does not release on the bar so it will move. If I could return the clamps to Rockler I would. I have bought several products from Rockler and I am surprised Rockler would sell such a poorly designed product. I know now why they were on sale.
Editor's note: Rockler has a 90 day return policy Charles, so you will be able to return these clamps for refund if you not satisfied with their performance.
