With vertical and horizontal handle adjustment capabilities, the lightweight, easy-to-use seam setter has the ability to tighten or loosen joints. More importantly, it is safe to use, saves time and eliminates mistakes in joining and levelling countertop seams at the correct position.

The Seam Phantom

Designed to work together with a straight edge, the seam phantom not only securely anchors a grinder in place, but it also produces neat, smooth seam edges and corrects mistakes, such as uneven cuts and out-of-square cuts.

Grips

A grip is a powerful clamping method that comes with an electric pump. It is used for opening and closing the seams and for securing the slabs of granite in place.

Clamps

Clamps are necessary to hold the countertop slabs in place at a 90-degree right angle, which allows the glue to dry undisturbed. This adjustable tool is made from steel and aluminium and usually weighs between 1.81 and 2.72kg.
