Clamp Sale - Penn State Industries & Home Depot

It must be "Clamp Season". I just received received the regular email news letter from Penn State Industries. They're doing their "Truck Load Clamp Sale" again. Their quick grip "spreader clamps" are on sale for 1/2 price or less, depending on the size. I'm going to get some more 12" and 36".
I bought some of these last year - 12", 24", 36". I was at MCLS, and THEY were selling them 3 for the price of 2. I have a couple of Irwin clamps, "quick grip" style. They don't even come close to the heavy duty quality of the Penn State clamps, and they're about twice the price.
Just wanted to let the group know, FWIW. I'm have no connection with Penn State Industries, other than to be a very satisfied customer with regard to their clamps.
I picked up some of the Bessy Tradesman's from HD last night - pickings were very slim. Got some 12" and 36" - feels good to get a great price. Now, I need to keep an eye out for when they dump the K-Body style - I'm going to rent a truck for that one! :-))
Thanks to Dave for the heads up on the Tradesman's.

Thanks for the heads up and URL. Ordered 16 clamps tonite, plus picked up 6 at HD. I think I got enough now that I already had 20 in the shop.

I picked up a set of 8 with the backwards ratchet push button release, like penn state sells, on ebay. The grips flex in my hand when I squeeze them, maybe the penn states are stronger?

Were they Penn State's? The Penn States I have are really solid, including the grips - that's why I liked them so much.
