More Leverage on Clamps

Sometimes I have a hard time getting a good grip on the small handles of my clamps, which makes it difficult to tighten them. Here's a simple solution for getting more leverage.

Drill a 3/8"-dia. hole in the handle and slip a short (6") length of dowel through the hole, as shown in the drawing below. The dowel allows me to get a better grip when I really need to tighten it.
