I have a pair in each length and rely on them extensively. I have used them for years and have no problems with them. I would recommend them to others. Good price and good value

These generally work well but I put a bit of pressure on the clamp and the aluminum clamp head broke. Wasn't worth the time tapping and trying to do a screw repair.

I had great hopes for these clamps, they looked sturdy and came at a great price. During the first use, the clamp broke after one full turn of the handle. Just as I was passing one revolution on the turn-screw, the aluminum base just above two rivets sheared off exposing what appeared to be some pot metal looking aluminum. I used the clamp to squash two endboards together pinned with a domino. I tried the 2nd clamp but the foot that slides on the rail failed to catch. In the workshop you can never have enough clamps but you might want to consider the type of work you'll use with these prior to buying.

These are my favorite clamps but I agree the clamp end can wedge on the bar. Backing off and moving it a bit by hand allows it to continue but it's a pain. I expect better from a clamp at this price.

I have about 25 of the older blue anodized models of this clamp, all 3 lengths, and have been using them for about 12 years with no issues at all. Recently I purchased 4 of the new models with the painted black clamps. I've found them to be of less quality. The pin that holds the spring loaded locking device pushed through the magnesium. Unrepairable. The springs fall out, I don't know why. just not the clamp it used to be. Wish I could find some more of the old style to buy.
