Designer picture frame clamp

V5-QRS - shadow-box

V5-QRS is a designer picture-framing clamp vise used for joining shadow-box and canvas floater frames. V5-QRS has high support bars aimed to support higher moldings. It comes with a Gap eliminator feature designed to eliminate joining gaps which typically appear in shadow box frames and floater moldings.

Our experience shows that since using V5-QRS shadow-box frame clamp enabled us to complete shadow box art projects efficiently and with more accuracy.

Features include:

  • Gap eliminator knobs - (mounted onto the support bars). Use the knobs to close any gaps and tighten the joints.
  • Quick Release - (at the back of the clamp), extend clamp opening size to fit frames up to 3.5" wide.
  • Clamp Handle - as turned clockwise creates clamping pressure up to 1,000 psi.
  • Support Bars - designed to support Shadow-box tall mouldings, while clamping.
  • clamping spring Jaws - (front of the clamp) deliver a powerful action to  push and tighten the corner joint and form a strong bond.
