What is a Snap Clamp?

A common phrase you hear at Circo Innovations, Inc. is, "Snap, like snap your fingers, and Clamp, like clamp something down." This usually occurs over the phone when we are trying to clarify the name of our most popular product with a customer. This description effectively doubles as a great way to sum up the Snap Clamp.

Most commonly used as a device for holding sheet like material to a tubed structure or frame, the Snap Clamp is as easy as snapping your fingers to use, and it securely clamps the material to a pipe or tube.

When Joe Ramey was a tile contractor he was faced with a problem. You see, many times he worked inside of these mansions that required not only loads of tile, but tons of special cuts. The problem arose when he had to cut all this tile to fit. If you have ever used a tile saw or been around one you know it can get very messy and dusty. Instead of going in and out of the house to cut his pieces, he decided to build himself a PVC tile saw surround. His solution, cut thinwall PVC to fabricate the very first Snap Clamps to hold plastic sheeting around the PVC enclosure.
