EZ Grip Side Clamps


Two EZ Grip Side Clamps per package.

11 in stock (and more can be backordered)



The EZ Grip Side Clamps make adding tension to your quilt backs super easy! These durable side clamps are 5″ wide, allowing them to spread out the tension on the side of your quilt backs. Wider clamps are essential to avoiding over pulling your quilt back in one spot, which can effect how square your final quilt is. The 1.75 yards of elastic attached to each clamp gives you plenty of length to work with any quilt, no matter how big or small!

If you have an APQS machine, you’ll use the existing side buckles on your machine to attach the elastic for these clamps. If you have another brand of machine you may need to develop a way to attach the elastic on these side clamps to your table’s legs.

Each package contains two EZ Grip Side Clamps. If you have a smaller frame for a machines with around a 16″ throat you may only need two clamps total (one for each side). On larger throat machines with around 26″ or more you will likely want a total of four clamps (two for each side). These clamps are sold in packs of two.

    Great clamps for those with arthritis! I absolutely love these clamps. I also just bought 4 for my sister who got her Millie installed this week. She has arthritis and these are easy on the hands. Thanks for a great product.

    Can’t wait to try Looking forward to trying out the new clamps. Haven’t gotten my machine set up yet as I just purchased but knew I would like these clamps better as I have used the machine at the prior owner

    These are great clips I replace the original clamps from my millie with these and love them. They hold well, spread out the tension better than the original clamps and I think it's easier to work with them close to the edges.

    EZ Grip side clamps I love these clamps. They are so much better on my quilts. They have a much more even overall pull and control of the quilt. They arrived quickly after I ordered them and were easy to install. Claire

    Love these grips I used them when I did not have quite enough backing and still needed toget to bottom of quilt, I used on front rail. I only have a cutie frame and have not used enders since I float the forward part, but this worked wonderful when I had just enough fabric to piece to the edge of quilt

    Easy on the hands So much easier on the hands. I had ordered some from Amazon and sent them back. These from quilted joy are the ones to get.

    Wish I would have used these clamps earlier Wow what a difference! So easy to open - no strain on the hands. Spreads tension along the fabric much better. Bonus - I have more space to work with along the edges as they are slimmer.

    Superb These clamps are great. I switched out my old clamps and these are so easy to use. No more killing my hands to clamp my backing. And my wife loves them also. Great product.

    Best clamps I've found! Been looking for some decent long arm clamps avoiding "potato chip" bag clips. These great. Strong and sturdy. Sometimes, you get what you pay for.

    User Friendly I LOVE my new clips. They are so easy on the hands and provide just enough grip in one easy motion. My frame is set up to use Velcro rather than the elastic to secure the clips so I replaced part of the elastic with Velcro in a quick 10 minute conversion. Everything is now perfect! It was nice to have such wonderful and personal service too. Thanks

    Love these clamps! Super fast shipping! I absolutely love these clamps! I am an experienced Longarm Quilter and was always looking for the best stabilization for my quilts. These provide that stability I was looking for! I personally use 2 on each side for even tension all the way. Easy to open and classy looking too!

    Love these clamps I replaced the orange clamps on my Lucey with these. I love them. Very easy to open, holds good. They are also wider so they help spread the tension across the side.
