I love clamps because they make it so easy to stick things together temporarily, and they don't leave behind an annoying residue like duct tape does.
For example, here are some shadow cards I constructed at work out of black foam core. They keep direct sunlight from the skylights off my monitor. The shadow cards are held up by supports made entirely of clamps.
Those little orange hand clamps they have at the hardware store are especially cool, and they're relatively cheap.
I've been collecting clamps since college, and now I have about a dozen different kinds.
Clamps are essentially Lego for adults.
