Stewart R. Browne Ground Clamp, REB2960
The REB2960 Grounding Clamp from Stewart R. Browne is a popular and versatile product. Heavy duty die-cast aluminum handles with 2 stainless steel points are the basis of these grounding pliers. This design allows the clamp to get through multiple layers of paint or corrosion build-up so that proper contact is made to bare metal. This is quite different from the ALS10A Aircraft Grounding Clamp with non-marring plated steel jaws.
The stainless steel contacts are machined to a sharp point. They are replaceable, but may also be re-sharpened by resourceful maintenance folks. Other design details include a plated steel spring that provides approximately 55 pounds of closing force. Squeezing this ground clamp to open it will put you in mind of a Charles Atlas exercise device.
The grounding wire or cable is accepted on one leg of the pliers. 2 allen set-screws secure the conductor in place. The opening is .185 inches in diameter, and accommodates up to 5-AWG wire.
The REB2960 ground clamp has a wide variety of uses, including when transferring flammable liquids between containers or other maintenance operations where static generated sparks could cause a problem. This product carries FM (Factory Mutual) approval, with the FM logo cast onto the handles. Made in U.S.A.

The Specifications sheet states that the SS points are replaceable. Whomanufactures or supplies the SS points. Where can we buy replacements?1 answer
The Stewart Browne REB2960 grounding clamp has replaceable stainless steel points. They are sold individually. You get 1 point, 1 hex nut and 1 lock washer. The part number we use is SSPOINT, and the cost is $3.25 each. However, we have not sold any of these in the past several years, despite selling many thousands of clamps. Most customers, if needed, will simply sharpen up the points they have with a grinder. There is a fair bit of adjustment and extra ‘meat’ on the points to do this.
