Panel Holding System (clecos) is rated 4.9167 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have tool for a build Factory Five 33 Hot Rod School in Livingston MI instructed us on the necessity of using the system for the assembly of the 33 Hot Rod. We used the pins for many different portions of the build on metal and fiberglass components. Holding lighting assemblies in place while additional mounting holes were drilled. Temporary mounting of electrical panels. Assembly and then removal of firewall, flooring panel, battery boxes, fuel tanks, master cylinders. Things I have always relied on using 1/8" drills, clamps, weights, etc.. First thing I ordered for my build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product!! A very clever product that works as advertised. The holding power is a lot more than I expected. I bought as part of the bonding system sold here as I do not have a welder (yet), and the whole system works quite well. If you use with the epoxy bonding, remember to soak these in something immediately after you remove them or the epoxy will solidify around the pins and render them unuseable. Excellent setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SHEET METAL WORKERS AID SAVES SO MUCH TIME FABRICATING BY ALLOWING YOU TO FIT UP SEVERAL PANELS AT THE SAME TIME THUS ENSURING THAT EVERYTHING LINES UP PRIOR TO WELDING OR RIVETING. WOULD SUGGEST IF YOU INTEND BUYING THE KIT YOU SHOULD ALSO BUY AN EXTRA PACK OF 10 , YOU WON'T REGRET IT. GARY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without them! Well, at least don't have a shop without them. I've missed these little gems since I left the factory floor at a major aircraft company and they closed their surplus outlet. I hate to think of all the #@#$%^&~! words I've used in fabricating just because I didn't have Clecos. Like having eight hands, each with really strong grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A-1 tool If you do any type of metal work, you should have this tool set. Great for holding any type of panel, floor, trunk, quarter, rocker etc. in a temporary position for fitting, until ready for welding or riveting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for sheetmetal work As one of the previous reviewer stated a must for building a Factory Five kit car. Since I will primarily doing most of the work myself this tool is like a second pair of hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product needs simple instruction sheet; This is a good quality tool, but it does need a simple instruction sheet for folks who have not used this set before.

About Panel Holding System (clecos)

"We have all heard the old saying, 'If I only had three hands...' Well, here they are. This panel-holding system helped me earn a cool 20 grand on a complete resto of a ’66 Chevy pick-up. Eastwood has lots of cool tools, and best of all they work, and the warranty is great too. Something so simple, and yet it works so well...imagine that."
