Replacement Clamp Covers

This article will review replacement jaw clamp covers. There are several clamp covers available depending upon the model and generation of your stand. It is best to inspect your clamp and then compare to the clamp covers here. All jaw covers come as a pair. Jaw covers are listed here in reverse numerical order.

#1960

The 1960 fits the clamp jaws of the 100-3D, 100-5D, and 100-25D (the clamp used on the PRS-25. The cover is held in place by two studs protruding through the clamps. The studs are held with clips. The covers are nominally 2.75 inches (7cm) long.

#468G

The 468G fit the clamps of the 100-1C, 100-1CA, and 100-2C. These were the clamps of the last generation of the PCS-1. The clamps are made of welded stamped steel. Both clamp jaws have a deep recess in the center of the radius that allow the jaws to safely clamp over cable housing. Jaw covers are colored gray. The covers are nominally 4 inches (10cm) long.
NOTE: Use care not to confuse the 468G with the 467G jaw covers. The two are not interchangeable.

#468B

These are the current clamp covers for the 100-3C, 100-5C and 100-8 clamps. These are the "standard shop" clamps found on such models as the PRS-3, PRS-3 OS, PRS-2, PRS-2 OS, PRS-4, PRS-4 OS, PRS-7, PRS-5 and PCS-4. Both clamp jaws have a deep recess in the center of the radius that allow the jaws to safely clamp over cable housing. The jaw covers are colored black. Jaw covers are held by two studs that insert through the clamp jaws. These studs are then held by clips.The covers are nominally 4 inches (10cm) long.

#467G

The 467G fits the clamps of the older versions of the 100-2C clamps. These were the clamps of the early generation of the PCS-1. The clamp is made of welded stamped steel. Only the moving jaw has a deep recess in the center of the radius that allow the jaws to safely clamp over cable housing. The fixed jaw on the main shaft has no recess. Jaw covers are colored black. The covers are nominally 4 inches (10cm) long.  NOTE: Original jaw covers were gray, All replacements are black as shown here.

#467B

These jaw covers fit older 100-3C, 100-5C and 100-8 clamps. These older generation clamps were used on the shop stands such as the PRS-3 and PRS-2. Only the moving jaw has a deep recess in the center of the radius that allow the jaws to safely clamp over cable housing. The fixed jaw on the main shaft has no recess. The jaws are black in color. Both jaw covers are held by two studs that insert through the clamp jaws. These studs are then held by clips. The covers are nominally 4 inches (10cm) long.

#469

The 469 jaw covers are thicker than the standard covers. They are designed specifically to hold smaller diameter tubing such as the trimmer shaft in the lawn and garden industry. The jaw covers are colored blue. Jaw covers are held by two studs that insert through the clamp jaws. These studs are then held by clips.The covers are nominally 4 inches (10cm) long. (NOTE: The 469 is specialty jaw cover and will need to be ordered directly from Park Tool Company.)

#466

The 466 jaw covers are "slip-on" covers. There are no studs or clips. These fit the very early generation clamp jaws that were dipped in plastic. The original covers must be cut off before the 466 are slipped over the jaws. Neither jaw side has a recess for cable housing.
