Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Cleco fasteners The Cleco fast ER’s and clamps are a great way to hold panels together to drill perfectly aligned holes for fasteners such as rivets sheet metal screws and tack welding. I used these extensively in the Navy when working on our squadrons aircraft. Once you’ve used these a time or two you’ll wonder how you ever got along without them.

can you usae this on fiberglass I want to use it to install a body kit

Asked by: edmanuel
While we have never tested on fiberglass it would probably not work due to the thickness of the fiberglass.

Please excuse my ignorance, I am not even a beginner in metal fabrication (yet). How would you typically fill the holes left from the Cleco fasteners after the two panels are welded together?

Asked by: G Fry
The holes are easily welded up as you finish your panels.

if using Clecos with Eastwood panel bond do bond sheetmetal, how do you stop the Clecos from bonding from the panel bond ? Basically sticking to the bonded panels. Thank you.

Asked by: Big Hairy Chris
You need to remove the Clecos before the panel bond begins to harden. Then you can clean them with lacquer thinner.

Another person asked this question, but I am going to be more specific. To fill the hole left by the Cleco, wouldn't you have to enlarge the hole on the top panel so that the weld pool can actually get to the hole on the underlying panel so it fills it?
