...What could possibly go wrong? Americans call them C-clamps, but these are imported from the UK, where G is apparently the new C (and they really do look more like a G if you include the screw part, don't they?) This real, functional cast iron clamp with a built-in bottle opener will be useful for small jobs in any home workshop. Don't have a workshop? Clamp it onto a picnic table, a bench, a kitchen counter, or a shelf -- wherever you want easy, convenient access to a moveable bottle opener. It's useful, utlitarian, and -- dare we say? -- manly. The clamp is 110 mm tall with a depth of 60 mm (or 4.33" x 2.36", as we say in America). When fully open, the gap is about 1.5".
Are you curious...?
Clamps designed to hold two workpieces together are called C-clamps because of their frame shape, or G-clamps if you consider that the screw part makes them look like a capital G. There's also an F-clamp with a larger, square frame.
Woodworkers are advised to place a piece of scrap lumber between the clamp's upper grip and the wood being worked to prevent the clamp from marring the clamped object. C-clamps are also used in metalworking, and to hang stage lights. The latter usage is so common that clamps with special attachments are manufactured from aluminum specifically for that purpose.
In the late 1990s a Chicago band called C-Clamp released two "slowcore" albums that emphasized mood, texture, and rhythm.
