MEDINA, MN - Face frame clamping quandaries are commonplace—like how to center a wide frame on the front edge of a cabinet panel. Bar clamps apply skewed pressure that twists the frame hopelessly out of plane. But the unique design of these 3-Way Face Clamps from Rockler solves the problem. With a wide mouth and quick-release acme threads, it’s easy to adjust the clamp to wrap around wide stiles, whether the panel is flush with the edge of the frame or not.

Additionally, since they clamp to the front edge of the cabinet, the sky is the limit when it comes to cabinet depth, and they’ll work even when the cabinet back is already attached. The entire assembly process can be completed flat on a bench rather than having to shift the carcass to sawhorses. The clamps also make it easy to apply edging to extra-long table tops and pre-installed counter tops. Lightweight and compact, they’re much easier to cart around than a load of heavy bar clamps. The clamp bodies are built from die-cast aluminum, and the non-marring pads allow them to be used without protective cauls. Each clamp opens enough to clear a 5" wide frame (with panel centered) or 3" wide frame (with panel flush to the edge). At $34.99 each, the 3-Way Face Clamp (#39062) is significantly more affordable than similar clamps on the market.

Quick-release side clamps make adjustment as easy as pushing a button—drop the clamp in place, slide it closed and tighten.

Die-cast aluminum construction makes for a sturdy, lightweight and extremely portable clamp. Exceptional adjust ability allows you to apply pressure precisely where it is needed, even on wide frame material.
