We needed a sturdy, well built helping hands device for use in our product development studio. The ones on the market we tried were flimsy, hard to adjust, and came with tiny little bases that would tip over with anything but the smallest project mounted to them. Plus, we needed some extra "hands" to make it truly useful.
The other devices had only two hands to hold our project. That isn't enough when doing most electronic work. With solder in one hand and an iron in the other, having extra hands to hold wire or a component plus the project was important to us. So, in true "scratch our own itch" fashion, the QuadHands "four armed" helping hand device was created
Four Hands are Better Than Two
Four all metal flexible 'gooseneck' arms can be put exactly where you want and they'll stay. No more fumbling around with tiny set screws or other hard to adjust arms. Just move them where you want and let go.
Four stainless steel alligator clamps are mounted onto the threaded end of the goosenecks. Matched with a thumb nut, each clamp can be rotated 360 degrees in either direction then locked into place. Exactly where you want. This makes precision positioning much easier than other devices. And we even include a set of silicone clamp covers for use on delicate electronics
The solid steel base is a stable 8" by 8" with a heavy powder coat finish. Supported by four large rubber feet, it won't tip over or slide around your bench. Even when you are working on a heavy project. The whole system tips the scale at over 3.2 pounds. Much heavier and larger than others.
The QuadHands is a sturdy, well built device that simply does what it was designed to do. We think it is exactly the type of product you would have built for yourself given the time and inclination. Consider getting one for your bench today.
