Lidwig Claw

For those who have been waiting patiently for these to come in (and for those who didn’t in the past, but now want one), I can now reliably say that the Lidwig Claw is back in stock – contact www.lidwig.com.au to get your hands on some.

The extra ones that I was looking for, for use in various jobs around the shed (bandsaw blades, extension cords, temporary trunking runs etc) have arrived.  They are still $A8, so it is definitely an affordable proposition if you feel you need to have a few.  I might look at getting a few more for inside the house – such as storing the vacuum cleaner hose, more extension cords, Xmas lights…the list can go on and on.

For some examples of the claw in use around the shop, I have some photos here in an earlier post. (Of one in the old colour scheme fwiw)

To give an idea of scale – you can get the clamp around a 4″ (100mm) dust hose.  The real smarts in the design is in the lever mechanism below the hook – the heavier the load, the more the 2 sides of the claw are pulled together by a scissor action.  I think they are rated for about 30kg of cable, so it is rather unlikely that you’ll overload te clamp before managing to fill the claw completely!
