I don't understand what the question is.

Ah,OK, so it does have a connector extrusion fastened to the base of the toggle clamp!! I was just trying to understand how that toggle clamp works.

Now I understand. Thanks!!!

BTW, I have several of the bench clamps shown in the second link - I believe originally created to use on the clamp table - which I also have. Now I'm seeing new uses for those clamps.

I used these with pieces of connector extrusion to make clamps for my Brand "X" tracks when I was fitting new doors in the laundry room - used the brand "X" because I have connectors to join two sections of track and needed to trim the length of the door to fit a tapered opening. They work just like the "old" EZ clamps when cutting a taper on a narrow piece, clamping the part underneath the track, ACE on the cut line and the offcut outside of the track.

Well that makes some sense. The original question I did not understand until I followed the link. The link that started this thread showed toggle clamps without the connectors attached. When we see the clamps as featured in the link above, as a clamp you can view it in operation, it make more sense. Still I think the smart clamp, though a little slower to set or remove, is one of the best clamps available. I have not seen the newer clamps and never anything on the toggle clamp. My experience has been that the toggle clamps are not very secure. One of the reasons I was sold on the Smart Clamp is the security, and peace of mind, knowing my clamped materials were going to stay where I set them.

These bench clamps look like a good deal, assuming the quality is on par with De-Sta-Co toggle clamps, they'd cost about the same.

Hoping the smart clamps come back. For one thing, they can clamp to very thick materials. Also security and they can make a nice little table with the accessories.
