Hello!

Clamp, it's a cheap tool. A few pieces are enough to always be at hand. But if a large number of Clamps are required, then the cost grows significantly. It is good that you can make a clamp with your own hands. The model is simple to manufacture and easy to operate. To make the clamp you will need a piece of PVC pipe. The thicker the walls, the greater the compression ratio.

Step 1:

1. You need to cut the pipe lengthwise

Step 2:

2. Attach the handles and mark where the entry holes will be.

Step 3:

3. Mark where there will be exit holes for handles.

Step 4:

4. Then take the drill to the size of our handles. I have a handles 10 mm.

Step 5:

5.Stainless steel fully threaded stud 1m cut into 4 parts

Step 6:

6. Using a screwdriver, screw the stud into the holes

Step 7:

7, I marked the holes for the handles so that I could use the clamp with one hand

Step 8:

8. The grip force of the small clamp from the store.

Step 9:

9. The grip force of my clamp

Step 10:

Our clamp is ready. Thus it is possible to make clips and longer.

Hope you like my DIY.
Best whishes !

    This is a clever use for vent pipe offcuts (leftover pieces), and I suspect that ABS drain pipe could work too. Stainless steel threaded rod is expensive in Canada, but I don't see why a cheaper rod wouldn't work as well. A design variation that could increase the clamping range (both thickness and force) is to add a long bolt across the diameter that could be tightened to pull the jaws tighter.

    I can't watch the video, you need to go in the video settings and change it so Youtube allows embedding BTW.

    Very nice, and I love the simplicity!

    If I make a few, I might put a couple layers of heat-shrink tubing on the outside rod ends to make them more comfortable.
