Picture Frames Using Rockler Clamp
This is my first attempt at assembling my own frames. The Rockler clamp device is easy to use and I am very happy with the results. Ended up purchasing a 12” length of all thread to be able to assemble a larger 24” X 30” frame. Worked very well.

frame clamp kit
Works like a charm. Only frame clamp I've found that is easy to use, makes tight corners without excess fumbling around. I am purchasing another so I can do multiple frame glue ups at the same time. Love it.

Woodworking Experience:
Square Tight Corners
Assembly took only a few minutes, and it was up and running. Easy to pull corners tight, and get a good looking frame. Wish frame would have markings for placement of orange jigs, based on frame size.

It appeared to be a quick set-up and removal method for securing picture frames. My current methods of 4 corner clamps or a band clamp take a relatively long time for me to set up.

John C on Apr 2, 2017
I am an artist and I do sell my work in galleries. Framing done by commercial shops is extremely expensive. I make some of my frames, the simpler profiles, and I do make some small frames that I gesso, bole and water gild with real gold leaf. Cuts way down on my framing costs. This framing clamp makes that job much easier. You have to make accurate mitres. No framing clamp will overcome cuts that are not exact. Use a good quality mitre saw or make a mitre sled.
John S. W on Mar 25, 2017
Looked durable, functional and right for the job and price reasonable

Richard C on Mar 18, 2019
I want to make a frame that is larger than the dimensions of 26" x 30". I know I can use a bar clamp to extend the dimensions. But wouldn't that be the dimension on only one axis, i.e. I will be restricted to one side maximum of 26 or 30"?
alexander t on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi, yes you are right, other option is to modify n make a table to suit to requirements.
Can V nails be inserted into the backs of the corners as the glue is drying?
Dan R on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would wait until the glue sets up--just an hour or so. I don't use V nails, but after two hours the joint is sufficiently tight to handle. I then cut slots into the edges for 1/8" splines.... The clamps exert considerable pressure on the corners, and the stock is flush up against the aluminum, but I don't know that the corners wouldn't move out of alignment if you V nailed it before the glue sets up.
I'm making a much larger frame size, do you have this framing kit that can handle 50" sq frame?
Marlene M on Nov 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you replace the threaded bolt (that is included with the kit) with a threaded rod that can be purchased at any home goods store, you will be able to get one dimension of the frame (length or width) to measure 50" or more, depending on the length of threaded rod utilized. Unfortunately the other dimension is limited by the size of the kit, about 30".
Can this product be used to assemble cabinet doors?
Michael F on Dec 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't tried that application but I don't see why it wouldn't work as long as it's within the limits of the clamps.
Would this work on a 4" x 4" square frame? If not would it work if I put a shorter rod on it?
CDW21 on May 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yea you’ll still need a carriage bolt but it will work with shorter hardware. I’ve also used a clamp as an alternative too.
can you use this with square corners and not mitered corners?
Eric F on Dec 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The orange corner pieces of the frame clamp kit are designed to hold a mitered corner evenly and square. If a square corner created by butting one side against the other is used, the orange corner piece will only hold one of the sides, and the other side will not be held at all. So in my opinion, I do not believe this kit will work well or at all with a square corner. It does however, work extremely well for mitered corners.
May be a silly question but could you use two of these to help with assembling a mitered corner little box, one on the top & one on the bottom?
Terry P on Jan 20, 2018
how do i put a small frame in it my bolt hits my frame like a 4x6 frame in inches?
Shirley T on Jan 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I had to cut the carriage bolt down. You could take it to your hardware store and buy a shorter bolt for your small frames
