The Monument Toolworks Gorilla Grip seam clamp uses an electric vacuum pump that provides for a powerful and consistent attachment to stone, releasing only when you want. Slightly porous tops have little effect on the Gorilla Grip. The cam adjusters allow the installer to level the seam perfectly, including tops with a slight crown.

The pads are made of UHMW with a round rubber gasket for a seal. They are available for use with compressed air, a vacuum pump or can be used with both. They are packaged in several configurations.
