Clamp for Wires

When I'm soldering wires for speaker connections or sprinkler-valve controls, I hold them in place with springs that are screwed down at one end. I stretch the spring, place the wire in the coils, and release. The springs hold the wires tightly, are easy to adjust, and help dissipate the heat.
