  • Clamping or securing is no more as it was!
  • If you secure with any clamp a work that has been trusted to you for restoration, expect breakage, expect substratum deterioration and dissatisfied customers and as a result decline of your image. In addition, you will have to do double job: first of all repairing the damages you caused by using an inappropriate clamp, then restoring the work. With some berna clamps (BERNA MultiClamps© or BERNA MightyHolds©), also known as BERNA or PSI Assemblers© - Miniatures and Masters -,  you are not taking any risk of damaging it. Indeed, these tools constitute the unique harmless and scarless system for easily and delicately clamping, assembling, holding and securing at the first try, delicate, fragile, light things and objects, even with curved shapes and ridges, Correlatively, set-up is very easy. One or two hands are enough to clamp, stabilize or spread on the first try, but sustainably, delicate objects, even protuberant ones, without any risk of marking and any risk of slipping. Even a single hand is enough when object size is small. Never seen before! You can clamp with even a minute amount of force and that holds. Exclusive skin-like springy buffers at the end of the jaws allow it. These devices lock automatically. To actuate them you simply need to put pressure with your fingers or hands on their jaw backs, near their beams. As soon as you stop applying pressure, the jaws instantly lock against the beam. You release them by a simple pull up of the jaw rear portion. A handle has never to be turned. They harmonize two until now opposing actions: holding firmly, whatever is the configuration, clamping, stabilizing and spreading, and conserving surface finish.You save time.
