You can tighten and loosen bar clamps with greater comfort and gripping power if you coat the handles with Plasti Dip ($5 a can at a hardware store). It’s a flexible rubber coating that’s easy to apply and dries in four hours. To coat the handles, tighten the clamps on the edge of a workbench, using a piece of newspaper on the floor to catch drips.Apply two or three coats for maximum comfort. Our thanks to reader Bob DeSpain for this gripping tip.
