Entry Description

The MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP’s head is forged to fit a standard dovetail groove. The user can create their own tracks anywhere they can route a groove. This improves safety as the clamp is not exposed around power tools. It also is more economical and environmentally friendly, as users do not have to purchase metal track. The design includes an Anti-Pivot coil that holds the arm where it is set, allowing for repeatable processes. Finally, the product features the X-Pad, which attaches to the clamp pad to provide both downward and inward pressure at the same time, like two clamps in one.
