Red Snapper side clamps 16″

(5 customer reviews)


Watch Tutorial

16 inch clamps made for 22-26″ throated machines, Includes two clamps in a package .Get a more even tension grip on the edges of your quilt with the Red-E-Edge Clamps.

Clamps pinch the edge of the fabric tightly to allow you to add side tension to the entire exposed edge of your quilt top. Lightweight side clamps hold the quilt edges with more even tension than when you use two or three of the standard clamps that probably came with your quilting frame. Just open the clamp and slip it over the quilt edge, pinch it closed, and then clamp (using a clamp that came with your frame) onto the elastic cord that runs through the Red-E-Edge Clamp Opening and closing the clamp is easy Available in three sizes for any frame: 12″, 16″ , and 19″ Measure the distance from the leveler bar (the one towards the back that holds the quilt level ) and the front bar (sometimes called the “belly bar”); order a clamp that is SMALLER than that measurement; remember, you need to get your machine pulled off to the side to change bobbins and the hopping foot cannot go over the Red-E-Edge Clamp.

    They keep an even tension on the sides of the quilt. Nice to not be bumping into the clamps anymore!

  2. Joyce Schoonover

    Fast and easy. They keep the back evenly taught, so the quilting is easier and smoother.

  3. Sue Halter

    The side clamps are such a great help in keeping the quilting tension even in the area being quilted. A great product.

  4. Angela Rosin (verified owner)

    These are nice to have for certain quilts but on a number of the quilts I get frustrated putting them on and off.

      they like any tool take some getting used to. when you have to travel back and forth back and forth that’s where the custom work can make it a bit cumbersome but when you get into a groove using your new tool I know you’ll love having ecen consistent side tension. with that said not every tool is for everybody I hope they get more enjoyable for you to use.

    These keep the tension on the side of your quilt so much more consistent than using a couple of clamps. They are also much thinner than a clamp so you can quilt closer to the edge when there is limited space on the side of the quilt.
