Spring Clamps

Devices used to hold spring in place, thus ensuring eternally promis-ing, but changeable and wet weather. No? How about this then: Steel grips, spring loaded to keep their tips tightly closed on whatever you chose to target. The handles and tips have been coated with a light plastic to improve grip and provide a bit of insulation. The clamp is about 4" long x 5/8" wide and opens about 1-1/4". They have strong grips and will crush fragile items, but do a good job of holding things while the glue dries, you do the soldering, or the materials bond.

Papa takes (3) “D” batteries, mama takes (2) “D” batteries, and baby takes (2) “AA” batteries. You buy the batteries, but even so, this set is cheaper than three bowls of porridge.
