    HiI have have these Schwinn tools that i think hold on to the frame

    Hi I have have these Schwinn tools that i think hold on to the frame. I've seen them in my Schwinn Factory Dealer Service Repair Manual Volumes 1 and 2 that I just got.
    Can you tell me what they are called and what they exactly are used for?

    Those are repair stand clamps. They mount to a solid base and clamp onto a frame or better, onto the seatpost. Park sells similar ones for a lot of money.

    As busdriver says, those are adjustable frame clamps for the Schwinn repair stands. Be careful when using them; if they're adjusted too tight they can dent thin walled frame tubes quite easily.

    Thanks guy's. I wasn't going to use them for myself. Along with the books, an old Schwinn angle finder and these clamps and a few other things I'm putting them up on ebay. I just didn't know what the clamps were or exactly used for so I didn't know how to list them.

    After redin this forum I had a good idea you guys would know what they were.

    I suspect they were actually made by Park, and just sold under the Schwinn name.

    You could probably get more if you sold them individually.
