Unlike many clamps these are easy to put on and off and on again. Sometimes during play things get wet or slippery and normal clamps become unusable. These are much easier to manage. Also, note these are not necessarily for beginners bc they are fairly strong and heavy. Finally, some people seem to like to pull the clamps off with a yank. I've had had that happen with all types and some just come right off but these clamps are different and when tugged or pulled-on the clamps actually tighten down! :) Awesome!!
