I cut small squares of cushioned white vinyl shelf liner and attached to the face of the clamp with 3M spray adhesive. After it dried a couple of hours I used a sharp utility knife to trim away the excess. So if I ever clamp finished wood, there will be less chance that it will be marred in the clamp while drilling.
I haven't tried cushioning yet, but it is a great idea. I have had slight impressions in soft wood when using my Kreg clamps and Kreg jig.
In stores where they sell the round felt pads, with stickem on one side, for chairs legs and table legs, they often sell similar self-sticking pads to protect wood floors and tables, but the pads are a black rubber and they prevent sliding. Would those work better?
Try it and report back.
Before all the varieties of pads became available,
a piece of an old ''inner tube'', cut-to-size and glued in place, worked very well.
The rubber inner tube material provides excellent slip resistance.
