Even under heavy clamping pressure, these clamps maintain a perfect right angle — ideal for clamping drawer boxes and other assemblies that must remain perfectly square.

Irwin Parallel Clamp, 24"

Item #
94% of 100
With jaws that stay perfectly parallel, these clamps are ideal for accurate clamping of casework and drawers. The unique handle doubles as a clutch - just pull up to disengage. Clutch prevents clamp head from sliding down and pinching your fingers while on the clamp rack. The bar has no serrations, so the jaws slide smoothly and dried glue flakes off easily. Non-marring jaws are a full 2" in width to spread clamping pressure over a greater surface area. Extra long screw thread gives a long clamping reach. Removable foot allows you to reverse the head for use as a spreader. 3-3/4" throat depth. For better alignment, see our Rockler Parallel Clamp Blocks (#38399, sold separately). The unique design guarantees parallel alignment for strong, solid holds.

Everything I could Have asked FOR
These are just the right size for glue up project that I've been working on. They also work great clamping a project down so I was able to use my jig saw to cut out a pattern I was working on.

Great clamps
As good as any clamp out there you just got to keep the slide clean like all parallel clamps.

Woodworking Experience:
Good choice
The's paraellel clamps are good quality. Like all paraellel clamps they are heavy but that's probably needed to do the job correctly. The price (bought on sale for $30 ea.) was decent, certainly less than most others.

Woodworking Experience:
Easier than pipe clamps
I routinely glue up a 2x2' panels and struggled with pipe clamps. Tried panel clamps, but found the parallel clamp the easiest to work with. I ended up with 4 clamps, and with them, I can easily sneak up on a well clamped panel, without it sliding around.

Is the 24" length given the total length of clamp or the clamping capacity? Thanks
Bruce B on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The clamp capacity is 25 inches.
what is max opening between jaws ?
David A A on Jun 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I just measured the opening, it was 25 3/4". Might get another 1/8 to 1/4 inch, but have never attempted that.
