What is the major benefit or reason for using a yoke pipe clamp as opposed to regular two bolt pipe clamp?

The main benefit is that the yoke clamp can support a greater amount of load. Additionally, the lower portion of the clamp does not significantly protrude beyond the pipe O.D. This is beneficial in installations where clearance is an issue.
