For most folks that are not in the fabrication industry the Cleco is a Mystery.
Really the Cleco is a very simple yet most useful tool.
Its basic function is to hold two pieces of material together through either a small 1/8 hole or clamp. It can do this with a simple spring and wedge functionality. In most cases the cleco is replaced later with a rivet during final assembly.
The best thing about this tool is that the kits are not very expensive.
