A locking clamp is one of my most useful tools.Unfortunately, the clamp setting tends to change when the tool is used repeatedly for the same task, because the adjustment scr*w loosens.So, I have to constantly readjust the screw.
To solve this problem, I threaded a 7/16-14 nut onto the adjustment scr*w to create a locknut.Now, once I establish the needed setting for the clamp, I tighten the locknut against the tool handle and everything stays put.
By the way, I cut the nut in half, making it 3/16 in.thick instead of 3/8 in.thick.The thinner nut allows for a greater range of clamp adjustment...
