You won't need to spend time making cumbersome custom-shaped wooden cauls trying match a radiused fingerboard surface, either. The toothed outer surface of the flexible glue-resistant band engages a threaded plastic thumbnut that adjusts the clamping pressure. The flexible cradle conforms to the instrument's neck to help protect the finish.

We recommend positioning a band clamp every 3" along the fingerboard.

Overly complicated

These things are good for people who know how to work them. I tried to get them to work, and 2 of my 3 broke. And when I got the 3rd one on, it wouldn't tighten as much as I needed

The Pressure Is On

These are great clamps. I am the proud owner of 15 of them. I use 5 per fretboard when I am gluing the fretboard to the neck and use a wood cam clamp at the heel and fretboard. This requires making sure the neck is absolutely straight before the glue and fretboard is applied. With 15, I can do 3 neck/fretboards at a time. The clamps make me more effective and consistent in getting good accurate necks. I love these clamps. Thanks Stewmac.

Work Great, but Be Cautioned...

These clamps work really well - but they can work TOO well. Don't over tighten them or they will dent the edge of the fretboard. Might be a good idea to spread the pressure out at that point with some sort of wooden strip.
