Balancing casework pieces at 90° angles while you drive the screws can be a challenge, but the Automaxx Right Angle Clamp makes it easy. Its steel pin fits snugly into one of the pocket holes to hold the pieces firmly in position while you drive the neighboring screws. Use it to join drawer sides, case sides or even thicker materials for framing an outdoor project. Thanks to Automaxx auto-adjust technology, no adjustments are necessary to accommodate the different thicknesses. Also great for assembling box joints.


Features:
  • Large ergonomically contoured grips fit hands comfortably
  • Thumbscrew provides one-handed pressure adjustment—set it and forget it
  • Short handle throw makes it easy to open and close the clamp, even with small hands

Kreg Right Angle Clamp
Works very well and is great not to have to adjust the tension each time it is used. Simplifies the work and saves time.

2 Head Boards
Bought the Kreg Jig System and the right angle hole clamps. For the longer boards this made life much easier and the final product better.

This was exactly the tool I needed to complete my build. The staff at Rockler helped immensely and they were eager to share their knowledge with me. I’m just starting to get into woodworking and their help was greatly appreciated.

I'm a stickler for details and just about always "overbuild" . Additional framing/blocking and cabinetry inside my pole building will utilise the Kreg system whenever possible !

Clamp seems to be a must to make sure materials stay put doing the joining process. Can't wait to try it out!

SHOULD CLAMP ASSEMBLY PIECES SECURELY FOR SCREW APPLICATION.

I don't know of anything else that does this job without clamping across to the other end of the work piece.

clamps are awesome and helpful!
edward w on Mar 4, 2017
After watching Scott Anderson using this tool so many times on his American Woodshop show, I must be able to reach for it on demand. Too many times have I said 'thats a good idea' and blown it off. No more. My desk design just added another level of joinery.

I purchased one already and found that two would be more accurate in face frame application.

To assist holding wood joints where I need to have a square or protractor involved. Great if you are like me and only have 2 hands

These clamps help hold anything that has pocket holes until glue and pocket hole screws are used.

Does this clamp work with micro pocket holes?
John B on Mar 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. It is too large. The description on Rockler's Web Site is misleading, even the sales personnel thought it would work with the Micro Insert. You'll have to make your own clamping jig out of plywood and toggle clamps
