Personally I prefer using hoseclamps for clamping.
Me, too. (Even though BG inspired me) I have one of those hose clamps with the big fat plastic key on it. Pretty danged handy! Maybe we can start a Hatfield v. McCoy conflagration with Cable Clamps vs. Hose Clamps camps going at it! We Hose Clamp guys can extol the virtues of the infinite range of iterations inherent in the Hose Clamps whilst the Cable Clamp guys can wax eloquent about the nearly poetic clicking noises made by their chosen device!
Who is going to get the animated turnkey avitar first?
