Rockler Introduces Universal Clamp-It™ Kit

Works as a Third Hand Eliminating the Need for Custom Clamps

MEDINA, MN (December 6, 2011) – Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Universal Clamp-It™ Kit, a unique set of tools that ensure square when joining any two pieces of stock at a 90° angle. Used with the two included universal face clamps, the Clamp-It eliminates the need for custom clamps, long clamps, or the recruitment of an extra set of hands. With Clamp-It securing the joint, woodworkers are free to use both hands to finish the assembly process, guaranteeing square corners.

“Clamping 90° angles is a difficult and cumbersome process,” said Steve Krohmer, Vice President of product development. “The Clamp-It not only makes it possible for one person to join two pieces together during the assembly process, it guarantees the joint will be square and tight.”

The exclusive, high-impact, polycarbonate Clamp-It measures 8″ x 8″ x 1/2″ and features two 3/8″ holes to accept the included aluminum universal face clamps. Combining the Clamp-It and universal fence clamps is ideal for using with any joinery technique, from glued or nailed dado or rabbet joints, to hand-cut dovetails. In addition, the Clamp-It-clamp combination is very useful for assembling plywood cabinets to face frames and drawers, framing decks, and installing rails and balusters.

The universal face clamps may also be used independently for a variety of clamping applications including the creation of sacrificial fences on table saws, bandsaws, chopsaws, and stop blocks, to name a few.

The Universal Clamp-It™ Kit (44117) retails for $24.99. It is available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler’s independent resellers,, or in the Rockler catalog.

    Those clamps can also be used with a sacrificial fence on the table saw. Just drill a couple vertical holes in the wood to be used for the fence and slip the clamps in.

      I’m getting some samples sent to me, I have a feeling they will come in damn handy on lots of projects.
