ANKENY, Iowa September 1, 2023 – Kreg Tool Company, a leading manufacturer of woodworking tools and accessories, today announced the launch of two new products for DIY enthusiasts and woodworkers: VersaGrip™ Clamps and the Universal Bench with Hardwood Top.
Easy-release trigger-style bar clamps
Kreg’s VersaGrip™ Clamps are fast, versatile clamps that can be used in a variety of DIY, woodworking, and hobby applications. The patent-pending clamp head is repositionable along the bar and is also reversible so it can be used in both face-clamping and edge-clamping applications. The handle features an easy-release trigger for quick unclamping. A 3-1⁄4″ jaw depth makes VersaGrip Clamps the ideal choice for use with Kreg jigs or thicker workpieces, and 300 lb. of pressure holds projects tight.
Each VersaGrip Clamp is also designed for seamless integration into ¾” bench dog holes and comes with a Pocket-Hole Jig Adapter to pair easily with Kreg 300-Series and XL Pocket-Hole Jigs. VersaGrip Clamps are available in four lengths — 6″, 12″, 24″, and 36″ — to suit different project needs.
The Kreg® Universal Bench with Hardwood Top is a complete, turnkey workbench that features a flat, stable, durable hardwood butcher block top with protective coating for easy cleanup. The top is available in four sizes and can be selected with ¾” precision-machined bench dog holes for added clamping functionality with Kreg’s new VersaGrip Clamps.
The workbench also features height-adjustable legs and can be customized with Kreg U-Bench accessories and plans for shelves, cabinets, and drawers to make it a versatile home for any DIY and woodworking project. For mobility, a set of four 3″ Dual Locking Casters is available (sold separately).
A new 3-D Workbench Builder experience features augmented reality functionality to build and view the selected workbench in any space and preview it with added accessories.
Universal Bench components and accessories, as well as VersaGrip Clamps, are available now at select local specialty stores, home center retail locations, and online.
