Check out our new Needle Nose Spring Clamp!

The Needle Nose Spring Clamp is the very first workholding attachment that we offered for our popular SnakeClamp.  We originally offered a Wolfcraft brand product but the supply chain dried up and the cost of acquisition tripled.  So we switched to another brand.  Well not long ago that product also exited the market and we found ourselves without a needle nose clamp.  So we designed, improved and built our own!

The Needle Nose Spring Clamp is injection molded from tough, lightweight fiber-reinforced nylon and has a very strong spring for excellent clamping force.  We designed a mounting lug at the rear of the handle so that the clamp can be attached parallel (inline) with a flexible gooseneck tube arm.  As with our previous needle nose clamps, it can also be attached perpendicular to the gooseneck via the side hole.  As you can see we also added plenty of teeth to firmly grab onto all kinds of objects!

Introducing The Megaclamp – our strongest, most versatile clamp EVER!

Being that a SnakeClamp is a tool to “hold what you need, right where you need it,” it is vitally important that the mounting base be strong, versatile and easy to use.  So today we are pleased to announce the launch of our new Megaclamp.

The unique design of The Megaclamp came after a year of development work.  Our challenge was to make a very strong clamp that could be used on both flat and round surfaces.  We looked at many different designs and materials and eventually settled on our unique “v-block:”

EPDM rubber v-block included with Megaclamp

The Megaclamp is made from 1/4″ thick steel and features a black powdercoat finish.  It can be used both as a table clamp for attaching to flat surfaces such as desks, tables, countertops, bed headboards, etc (anything flat) or as a rail clamp for attaching to anything round such as posts, pipes, rods, railings, etc.  For attaching to round objects simply slip on the included EPDM rubber v-block:

Due to it’s large size, the Megaclamp can attach to flat surfaces between 3/8″ up to 2-5/8″ thick.  With the v-block installed it can attach to round pipes, rods or railings from 1/4″ up to 2″ diameter.

When used as a table clamp your mounting surface is protected by soft rubber pads.  There are two mounting holes so that you can attach a flexible gooseneck or rigid arm either parallel or perpendicular to the threaded handle.  This is useful, for example, if you wanted to attach your SnakeClamp to a bed headboard or side rail:

We elected to use a 3″ long handle on the Megaclamp.  This makes it easy to tighten and loosen and assures that your SnakeClamp will be very secure.

All of SnakeClamp attachments and mounting bases include hardware for attaching to our flexible gooseneck or rigid arms. For the Megaclamp that means a 3/8″-24 stainless steel flat-head screw, a flat washer and a lock washer.  If you want to see how it goes together, take a look at the Assembly Instructions for Megaclamp.

Wall Mount Your iPad or Tablet with SnakeClamp Components

SnakeClamp components aren’t just for mounting your items on our flexible gooseneck arm.  You can do a lot of other things as well such as mounting your iPad or tablet to a wall.
