How many times have you had to deal with situations where the handle of your clamp got in the way? The Boss has experienced this situation several times and his vocabulary was rather colorful when his fingers were squeezed between the handle and the side of a cabinet.

At Bessey, they not only know how to innovate, but they can also invent. In this case, it seems that they have had a great idea by repositioning the handle of the mobile jaw around the rail.

  • The new Bessey GearKlamp is simply one of a kind because it is equipped with a patented gear mechanism which separates the spindle from the rail-mounted handle
  • Its compact design provides greater clearance particularly into confined spaces
  • Its 2-3/8" (60mm) throat depth makes it ideal for tight spots
  • The swivelling jaw has a protective pad and moves up to ¾"(20mm)
  • Twisting the ergonomic handle will provide 450 lbs (2000N) clamping force
  • A quick release button is located near the handle. Just press with the thumb and slide the moveable jaw wherever you want
  • Made of fiberglass-reinforced polyamide and tempered steel rail, they are both light and very sturdy
  • Available in 4 lengths:

BESGK15       GEARKLAMP   6"(150mm) bar clamp

BESGK30       GEARKLAMP 12"(300mm) bar clamp

BESGK45       GEARKLAMP 18"(450mm) bar clamp

BESGK60       GEARKLAMP 24"(600mm) bar clamp


Suggestion from the Boss: Plan on buying even numbers (2 or 4...) in order to avoid any inconveniences.

A “Big” clamp for small spaces!


A word from the boss 

New decade = many challenges! (20-01-24)

A new year has just started and another decade is beginning full of hopes and challenges. Among these, labour-related issues are likely to be a major challenge for the industry as a whole.

Succession problems have already begun to leave marks to both our suppliers and our customers. Mergers, downsizing and reduced services among suppliers, decreased activity, withdrawal of business and closures to customers.

Normand also has to deal with the same problems. The planned departure of several long-time employees with more than 35 years of experience will leave a void that will not be easy to fill.

All of this will have a significant impact on the quality and quantity of services. Should we continue to offer greater accessibility at the expense of a lower quality of response and service?

Fortunately, the Boss can count on a young and dynamic succession team with remarkable ideals but different from those of the old guard. The stability and continuity of the company remain at the heart of his concerns for the benefit of all his loyal clientele which has supported him for nearly 70 years.
