Most bar and pipe clamps come with plastic jaw pads to prevent marring the object being clamped. Inevitably those pads fall off, get lost, or become damaged. To make your own, cut a ½"- or ¾"-thick board at least 12" long and 1/2" wider than the jaws on your clamps. Then cut a centered ¼" -deep groove that’s wide enough to snugly hold a jaw across its width. Now crosscut that board into sections slightly longer than the length of the jaw. Adhere each section to a clamp jaw using foam-type double-faced tape or hot-melt glue. Have extra pads on hand so you can peel off old ones when they become damaged.
