This clamp is much more compact than a pistol-grip bar clamp and can be made tighter with no gradual loosening, though it takes more time to tighten. It's also heavier than most pistol grip clamps I've seen because everything but the pads and handle is metal.
If you have something light to clamp, you can actually rest the Bessy on its bar side to hold the clamped item up in the air. The item does need to be fairly balanced around the point where it's clamped because you have less than an inch of width to rest the clamp on, but the designers were thinking and made sure the clamp CAN be balanced with jaws pointing up. If you need to, lay a second clamp on the table to hold the non-moving end of the balanced clamp and it definitely won't fall over.
