These don't appear to be any worse quality than the brand names, but then they aren't a lot cheaper either. Easy to use and hold things securely.

Bought this to hold various sized pieces of materials; wood etc as I make various objects.... Wanted clamps that were light and would not damage the sometimes delicate materials..... Do these do the job? You bet they do :o)

I recently purchased this product in store as at first appearance they would be good value. They in my opinion are very light duty only!!! Any pressure applied to the clamp in the opposite direction being used for and they fail.
The build quality is not very good at all. I would expect that a minium level needs to be achieved. Again in my opinion these fall short of the mark.
The yellow plastic piece fitted to stop damage to the piece your clamping falls off when pressure is applied. Perhaps the manufacturer should have secured these on so they don't easily come off. In fact they come off so easily one is now currently down the back of my workbench. Afraid I won't be moving the entire work shop to retieve it.
I will simply bin these clamps and invest in something that is better quality and take away a valuable lesson about Hombase own branded products.

These clamps are good for light to medium use. They offer good value for money, although quality seems to have slipped slightly since they were re-branded from Babco to Homebase. An excellent choice for the one off or once in a while job.
