LET'S TALK GEAR CLAMPS
Gear clamps have been considered a simple product in the past, but not anymore. At Boshart, it was our belief that just because a product is simple, does not mean it can’t be excellent quality and a strong product that contractors can rely on. Boshart offers three different series of gear clamps, ensuring there is a gear clamp for every project, and every budget. Boshart sets a high standard in the industry as we take pride in quality by testing our products frequently to ensure they meet and exceed all standards.
