Handee Clamp Tool

handee_clamp.jpg

Have you ever heard of the Handee clamp?

No?

Well, me neither until yesterday. But after checking it out, I wish I'd had one for the past 15 or so years. It's a product from a small manufacturer and it's just getting off the ground, but man, does it look useful.

It's a tiny, long-reach clamp perfect for all kinds of tight space work. It looks like it's basically two small pieces of flattened, round metal stock, one sleeved within the other. The inside one can be moved in and out of the larger one with a knurled thumb turn. This increases or decreases the small jawed clamp end. Really simple and smart idea.

It looks the most useful for the mechanical tinkerer who can't always jam their hands into the hidden depths surrounding the engine block. But as a parent, I'd be more inclined to use this thing as a "Lego Retrieval Tool." There is a video of it in use below, and it's one of those things that has you smacking your forehead thinking, "really, this doesn't already exist?"

Here's a video of this fella working its magic with one of those annoying spring-loaded hose clamp:

They cost about $12 (with $4 S&H), so it's not going to break the bank. Seems like one of those things that if you have it kicking around, you'll probably find things to do with it.

Doesn't seem as useful as they make it sound. For hose clamps, I've always just used a small locking vice grip and never had any issues...

looks like anything you can do with this you can basically do with a pair of long nose locking pliers...
