New and improved clamp provides uniform pressure on chairs, boxes, frames and a wide variety of oddly shaped, hard-to-clamp objects.

Rockler 1'' x 15' Band Clamp

Item #
80% of 100

We've redesigned our ratcheting band clamp with a longer, more durable band and a new ratcheting handle that is permanently attached so it can't be misplaced. In addition, The strap is stitched to the ratchet post and the improved clamp mechanism further reduces the chance of slippage. Use it in any situation where even inward pressure must be exerted to prevent joining surfaces from sliding against each other: chair frames, mitered frames, coopered barrels, multi-sided objects and more.


  • Reinforced webbing with a herringbone weave for strength and durability
  • Nylon material won't stretch under tension
  • Band is stitched to the post so it won't come loose under pressure
  • Permanently attached ratchet mechanism is always ready for use
  • Also check out our Band Clamp Accessory Kit (#56025, sold separately), which includes four corner cauls and a rubber band retainer with a foam pad to prevent workpiece marring
  • NOT for use as a tie-down or for securing loads. For clamping purposes only.

Great clamp
I've wanted to try this for odd clamping jobs. I like the handle being attached to the clamp. I am looking at buying more.

Works great.
I am building a kayak and used 4 of these clamps to hold the hull and deck tightly together while I fiberglassed the inside.
They worked great for this.

Woodworking Experience:
Very helpful ... especially with ratchet handle
This clamp is much more useful than those that tighter with wrench or screwdriver (Pony/Jorgensen). Just make sure it is aligned so the lever is able to swing the proper way. I have one of these and will get, at least, one other.

Appreciate the new length. I have many of the older 10' lengths and hand to double up for longer items to clamp. I now can use only one. They work great!

Is there a "Quick Release" for this item?
(I've used similiar products in the past, and have not found a quick release botton/lever in other band clamps.
Alten on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the strap is held by a spring lever, which tightens as pressure is applied using the ratchet mechanism. It's very effective. Sos much so that it takes a bit of pressure against the locking lever to free the strap. What I do is used the ratchet to relieve some of the pressure (by slightly tightening and the moving the pawl away from the teeth while letting tension off) before pushing against the locking lever to release the strap. That makes it easier and makes the strap last longer. This clamp is not like some tiedown straps, where you have to "undo" all your ratcheting to get the strap loose.
I do a lot of segmenting. I am concerned with the glue getting in the nylon band material. Wash out with hot soapy water?
Roger H on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Or let it dry and scrape off.
How do I thread and use the 1"x15' band clamp? I've never used it and can't find the instructions.

Hope this helps everyone
I am trying to glue the top of a round wood table. The top has separated. If I use the Rockler 1'' x 15' Band Clamp, how will I prevent marring from the clamp?
Steve on Feb 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: the band itself won't mar the top, but the ratchet might. I just stick a piece of dense cardboard, carpet chunk, or even a rag under the ratchet.
Will these cauls work on box joints where the fingers protrude? If not, what kind of clamp is available to make the box square?
Dan K on Feb 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Since the banding is cloth, it could work depending on how far the fingers protrude and how much you wish to damage the banding. Rockler offers another clamp that might work better (see attached) that gives you a squared corner and would clamp away from the finger joints. I would think you might need 2 per corner to offer a good tight fit while the glue dries.

I have concerns on the lever braking based on a few of the reviews. Is there any warranty?
Tim S on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Ok if you have 6 hands to hold all corners even and operate the ratchet, not so simple, only used 1 time and went back to my homemade corner jigs
How many pounds of pressure does this clamp generate?
