Long jaws stay perfectly parallel under clamping pressure—ideal for keeping cabinet cases and drawer boxes square during the critical glue-up stages.

Irwin Parallel Clamp, 48"

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.

Very nice clamps
I have more clamps then most cabinet shops and every brand you can imagine, and I think the Irwin are right at the top with other good brands.

Purchased 6 clamps. They work as advertised. The only issue I had with them is that 2 would not properly retract to open the jaws. Turned out to be the UPC tracking sticker on the rail was jamming the mechanism. Once removed, they all work well.

48” clamp
These clamps work great, easy to use. I’m building a 3x4 bookcase and the clamps work great to hold it all in place while the glue set up.

Excellent for panel glue-ups
These are by far the best clamps I’ve used. They stand sure-footed and clamp in parallel.

is this a package of two clamps or just one?
ray h on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are sold by "each", but are packaged 2 to a box. I purchased 6 and 3 Irwin boxes arrived.
are these clamps rated for 600 pounds of pressure?
Richard H on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used the clamps on several large projects and they worked great -- I have not way of knowing what pressure they are rated
what is the max opening between jaws?
ken s on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the Irwin Manufacturer Part Number: 2026501 48" clamps. I just keasured the opening with the jaws fully open and it is 49". The 24" model is also one inch over at 25". Good clamp.
