I had the spring clamps kinda unorganized and since I don’t sue them as much as I do the other clamps, I decided to put them “up”.

The sign was made to discourage neighbors from asking me to work for them. A quick question of,”Is this the caliber of workmanship you want?” usually keeps me doing what I want to do.lol

Good way to keep them out of the way but still pretty easy to grasp, depending on how high off the floor that is.

I have about half that many spring clamps all stuck to the front of a shelf over my bench in a similar manner. Going to be doing something different as I rearrange my shop over the next couple months but works pretty well for me, one hand grab-and-go.

I may put them on a block and tackle set up for the days my back won’t let me stand to reach them. Kinda like I did the DC hose.

At least this keeps me from fighting the hose and the wheelchair.

you could use them to hold the curlers in your hair

or keep loose pants up

Patron’s too funny! I’d like to see how the clamps are used for the loose pants!

I like your storage ideas, just don’t want to get in your way or be too idle, as I’ll be “put up” too!

Nawh mmh, I always cut the “handicapped” slack. lol Just watch out for your toes when I try to get by you in the shop. lol

Dave, Those clamps are like diaper pins if you get a little hide caught up in the process.

God Patron, I’m scarred for life!!

Actually Southwest Airlines should have these available. They have kicked two off the past month for saggy pants on the plane.

If I did that, that Clamp would be getting in the way of anything I was trying to do…

... I don’t have that much room to spare! LOL

great place for the clamps and you can always sue them if one falls down and interfear with the work :-)

but that saw should be on the wheelchair ready to be drawn from the hip … that is a serious weapon

take care

David, you have just made me a permanent user of both a belt and suspenders, if I used the spring clamp
method, I would have to clean my shop for the second or third time ever to keep from knocking everything
over that I have carefully stacked up since I was Moses’ apprentice on the ark. That is how old my great
grand daughter is positive that I am, after all her nice grandmother that makes her cookies would not lie
to her. Rand, how handicapped do I have to be to get just a little slack?
