It's hard to beat the utility and convenience of these innovative new clamps. Just drop one into any 3/4'' dog hole and it rotates 360° to clamp at any angle. The sliding clamp rod offers plenty of adjustability, while the clamping pressure is automatically adjusted when you close the lever. Simply slide the clamping pad against your work, close the clamp and you're done. The pressure is also easily adjustable when needed—just turn the adjustment screw for more or less pressure. Once set, it stays the same for all workpiece sizes. The inline orientation is ideal for holding items against a fence or stop as you work. Two (or even one) used with a pair of bench dogs work much like a miniature tail vise.

  • Auto-Adjust: Armor’s Auto-Adjust technology automatically adjusts to variations in workpiece dimensions while maintaining consistent clamping pressure
  • Adjustable Clamping Pressure: The integrated adjustment screw is used to create a wide range of clamping pressures. Rotate the screw clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase the clamping force
  • Strong, Lightweight: Auto Clamps are constructed of ZAMAK Zinc alloy, which allows for an incredibly strong, lightweight tool
  • One-Handed Operation: Armor’s Auto-Pro AutoClamps are designed for one-handed operation, a huge advantage over the competition
  • Large Soft-Grip Handle: Horizontal handle features soft insets for maximum grip and comfort
  • Hardened Steel Push Rod: Adjusts in and out quickly to hold varying shapes and sizes. Extends up to 3-1/2''
  • Versatile Split Dog Peg: Allows clamping wherever a 20mm or 3/4'' Dog hole is present and has the ability to rotate 360°
  • Hardened Plastic Tip with Non-Marring Pad: Center notch for clamping outside corners or rounded materials
  • Rotating Lock Knob: Works with the wedged dog peg for a secure connection to the dog hole
  • If you do not have a peg table, simply drill a 3/4'' hole in any work table (Recommended minimum table thickness is 3/4'')

Woodworking Experience:
Works greatI
I built a table top to set this in that fits on my workmate. It adjusts well and holds fine.I drilled holes every three inches to accomadate different size wood pieces. No issues, just take your time to adjust pressure screw.

Fast Clamps
Bought these to use with my Festool MFT3 since they adapt to both 20mm & 3/4" dog holes and for a new project I started.

They held all of the sheet goods I ran through my saw on the MTF3, Made all of the repetitive cuts easy by letting me set them and then use them over and over again. Lift up was not a problem for me. Glad I bought them.

Excellent Clamp
This clamp works great if the dog hole is the proper size. I have an old Festool Table where the holes are somewhat "hogged out". Because of the oversize hole it can be difficult to lock down the clamp under extreme pressures, but it works great on my other tables. I called Armor Customer Service, and then sent me at no charge a larger 20MM replacement peg that solved the problem on the old table. Their sales engineer also stated they are working on a fixed method of fastening via a stud / washer / knob configuration for users like me that don't move the clamp around the table as often. This clamp performs every bit as good as the Rockler T Track Auto Adjust if secured properly.

Generally works well. It does rock back slightly as does my shop made stop causing the clamped piece to rise up slightly off the bench unless you work to position everything to minimize the rise.

I like these clamp very much
I read that the clamps caused the wood to tilt up with clamping pressure applied. After working with them awhile I found a piece of wood between the clamp and the project stopped the tilting completely.

Horizontal bench dog clamp
Works like advertised. The main shaft could have been beefier- it flexes a little if you're holding a piece down to do some light chiseling.

This tool was selected to assist with stabilizing wood for sanding and other use.. I found the functionality of this clamp to surpass all other dog clamps and that is why I purchased this item.

Will these clamps work in a Festool MFT table? The holes are 20mm in diameter which is about 1mm larger than the 3/4" diameter holes that the clamps are designed for.
Greg M on Mar 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven't tried but they have dial that will adjust the width of the space needed, so I would think it would work
How long is the peg?
Donnie S on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The peg is 2 3/4" long when it begins to snug up in the whole.
What is the height of the "jaw" of the clamp? For instance, if I clamp 1/2 inch piece of stock flat on the work bench to sand down, will the jaw be below the work piece?
JvZyl on Feb 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: the jaw is (inexplicably) exactly 3/4" inch, so there is a good chance it will be in the way if you are trying to machine a 3/4" piece of stock. You can use a spacer between your work piece and the clamp jaw (say 1/2" or 1/4") but in that case the clamp raises the work piece away from the bench, although it still holds securely.
