new weedwacker rack clamps

I have finally found something that looks very promising for weedwacker racks. Something that is fast and easy, but not a PITA to use 10-20 times a day. Its not for guys who have to lock their stuff up every time, but for me it will work.

@ $12/ea the price is right too. working load limit is 22Lb's each, so that should cover most small power tools, I suppose there might be a way to use them in a pair to hook up a backpack blower too.

For $12 it might be worth a shot. My concearn would be th strap, it looks to be the weak link.

I agree, even if they have to be replaced once a season or every two years it would still be worth it for me.

I agree if can get a year great. As long as it was set up in such a way that it would not ruin the trimmer when the stap might break.

Ive talked to several guys on one of my truck forums that use these exact straps for landscape trailers and they have all said they work well. Ive seen alot of pics of them used on shovels, rakes, etc but have never seen them on a weedeater.

They look useful, but I don't get it.

I use a trimmer trap, lift one lever and the trimmer is out.

It would seem that these would be slower in/out, plus more chance of a trimmer coming loose.
