C'mon...we all have stories to tell about needing a third or fourth hand to install a padded (Adel) clamp in our projects. Builders attempting to close a pair of clamps around a wire bundle and an engine mount tube have resorted to everything from forceps to duct tape, tender fingertips to colorful language.
Wicks Aircraft now carries a clever tool for the job. The locking pliers employ a lengthened duckbill jaw that holds the tangs of the Adel clamp in place while you wrestle a fastener into the holes. Better than zip ties and now just as easy, so they say.
The part number is ACP; cost is $37.
