Title: Clamp clip that can be actuated with one hand

Abstract: The invention relates to a clamping clip that can be actuated with one hand, having a drive housing comprising a hand grip and a fixed clamping jaw, with an actuating handle that can be displaced toward a rail with a second jaw by means of pivoting actuation on the hand grip, whereby the rail is blocked against back-pressure by means of a blocking element that can be released by means of thumb pressure on a release element. For better handling, it is provided that the release element forms an actuating arm that sits on a pivot axle that protrudes laterally from the housing approximately at the level of the actuating handle, the pivot axle of said arm being arranged, in relation to the direction of clamping of the rail, before the pivot axle of the handle.
