Hold downs and augers ()

You stated that you have one Veritas Hold Down, but in you last photo I count three. Another one of your photos was also confusing, until I blew it up and studied Lee-Valleys "RELATED PRODUCTS" on the hold down page and figured out that (in addition to various bench pups) you had at least Veritas Surface Clamp stowed in the back side of your board jack. You can never have too many clamps.

I have tried gluing wooden and leather pads to the tongues of my Gramercy holdfasts, but eventually they peel off when I hit the back of the holdfast with a mallet to release it. It looks like the Veritas products would not have that problem. Can you verify?
