    The downside to those is that they only fit the newer clamps with the plastic stop on the end of the bar.

    Older clamps have to be modified. They have a crimp in the bar to keep the head from coming off, and no hole in the bar. To use the extenders, you have to file/grind the crimp off, and drill a properly sized (and spaced) hole in the bar.

    Then, after doing that, you have to use a bolt -or something - through that hole when you're not using the extenders, to keep the head from sliding off.

    Not a big deal, but the mod is a bit time-consuming if you need to do it to eight clamps for a large scale glue up. Something to do in your 'spare' time - not when you're in the middle of a job and suddenly discover you need a longer clamp!
