Drawer installation clamps

Securing drawer fronts to their drawer boxes can be a challenge, but it's a challenge these clamps are more than up for. With their dual clamp heads and micro-adjustable stops, the Rockler Drawer Front Installation Clamps make getting perfect alignment a cinch. The thin frame profile allows you to close the drawer while the clamp is still on, making it easy to check your alignment with adjoining drawer faces. Once the micro-adjusters are set, you can work your way through a stack of drawers in no time flat. Simply clamp the front in position and use Drawer Front Adjustment Screws (P/N 34734, sold separately) to fasten it in place. Sold in left/right pairs. Only light clamping pressure is necessary.
