Bessey TG Professional Series Bar Clamps-Light Duty 2-1/2-inch throat
The ultimate in stability, these workhorse clamps are invaluable for high-pressure applications and wide openings. Available in a wide variety of sizes, these Light-Duty Clamps feature new ergonomic composite handles and have protective caps on both jaws.

    Features:
  • Integrated Bessey anti-slip system— set screw that is molded into the sliding arm interlocks with the serration on the rail to prevent the clamp from slipping.
  • Corrugated malleable cast iron fixed jaw and sliding arm generate powerful, rigid clamping. Top jaw press fitted to rail— no mechanical fasteners to loosen. Powder coating protects against corrosion.
  • High-quality profiled rail from Bessey's own ISO certified factories. The profile acts as a reliable reinforcement against torsional forces, while the serration on six faces additionally prevents the clamp from slipping.
  • Smooth-running spindle with Acme thread— more clamping with less cranking. Work hardened for strength.

I have come to like these clamps a lot. They have a positive action and better clamping force than the Jorgenson Ponies that I have typically used. Good solid handles, easy to grip and tighten.

Great clamps at a good price.
These clamps fit my price range and size needed to put together a bar top from 1x4 red oak slats. Performed as I wanted, no flex, easy to use, and holds tight. What more do you need from a clamp?
Hanging on the wall was easy

Nice heavy duty clamp but….
This 2 1/2 inch x 6 inch does not have the "stand-up hump" - maybe the larger sizes do, but I use these - not a deal breaker but something to be aware of maybe. I'll be ordering more now that I have seen the quality.

Excellant Service
These Bessey clamps can't be beat for the price. My shop uses Bessey exclusively. I know I can depend on good quality and the performance of the tool is great for my shop use. I use them to build furniture.

Best there is
I find these to be the best clamps available. Strong, big soft handles, Try to get the ones made in Germany if available. These are not light duty clamps, but heavy duty.

I have been using these same Bessey clamps for over 20 years and they are simply the best clamps I have ever used. They have held up to all sorts of situations and have never failed, even after 20+ years!

These are good F clamps. I...
These are good F clamps. I use them for general purpose bench holding rather than precise glue-up or assembly-type work since my finished work might be delicate and these clamps are hefty. I appreciate the 5.5" and 7" throats for more reach on hold down clamps. The handles allow a better grip than smooth wood, and everything on these clamps should last a lifetime except the plastic pads.

I really like this style of clamp. I have several different sizes. The small ones are strong and light.
Cedric M on Jul 24, 2016
I have several of the six-inch version of this clamp, and I wanted to add a few of the 18 inch capacity. These clamps are easy to use provide really good clamping force without any lateral movement.

BEST ANSWER: Nope. The 8 inch clamps fit but nothing larger, as the Bessey bars are too thick for the slots.
