If you're in the market for g clamps, I would recommend you test them first. I bought some of these and as they tighten up they deflect from the centre line. They can't actually apply a clamping force. Some were obviously bent, some had a very loose tolerance on the thread, or an offset head on the screw that caused it to drift. I did get one that seemed ok in the shop, but it couldn't open to 2 inches despite it being a 2 inch clamp.

I did find enough working ones to make it worth it, so I suspect it's just some weak quality control in manufacture. And as a comparison, the same applies to Toolstation clamps. Last time I went to Toolstation I tried a load at the counter and they were quite shocked at how many just didn't clamp.

If you can find enough working ones then they're a good price.

Threads can be poor too.....I've returned ones which were devilish to screw. Great price, but also 2" is niche. Most of mine are >4" and many substantially larger. 50p is a great price though.

I agree, you need to test individual ones because these are mass manufactured quite crudely and some just don't screw right or have a wonky frame etc. That's why buying them at counter places like Toolstation can be a nightmare.
Malletts mallet 😁
I remember playing around with these when I was a kid, pretending they were knuckle dusters. Anyone else?
Record they won't be....

Can even see from here they'll be pretty dire
