Clamps are as advertised.
I've purchased two of these clamps and they are as advertised. If the person who wrote the one star review had read the product description, they would have seen that the jaw opening is 44". No surprise there. The aluminum bars are made of aluminum tubing (rectangular) with wall thickness adequate for a medium duty clamp. If I ever need to 'beef up' the clamp, I could insert a wood board into the interior of the clamp (See Paul Sellers YouTube on using bar clamps on a workbench). I'm using the bar clamps instead of my old pipe clamps because (a) they are lighter (b) the surface of the bars make is easier to clamp up the desk I'm building and (c) cheaper then parallel clamps that I just don't want to invest in just yet. So, these bar clamps are much like pipe clamps without the weight and with a square top surface for glue ups. If you have pipe clamps and don't care about the weight, then these will just be the same only with the addition of the lighter aluminum. I would buy them again ... except the stores near me are out.
Clamp capacity us really only 44.5”
Very misleading item description. The actual capacity of this clamp is only 44.5”. If you need 48” capacity clamps for a project these will not work. Every other brand of clamp I own is true to the size advertised.
