JUST WENT AND GOT THE SHARK CLAMP.  no help....................THE SPRING IS TO SMALL IT GOES RIGHT THOUGH THE HOLES IN THE CLAMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS REALLY STINKS

Use 2 short pieces of metal through the ends of the springs (where the loops are) to keep it from going through.  Tips from a spring clamp tool or jewelers screwdriver come to mind.  Maybe straighten a paper clip and bend it small enough to get three or four wires through the loop?

I have not tried the shark clamp, I use a small wood clamp to hold one side of the spring to the machine and a 90 deg. pick to stretch it into the groove, sliding the pick around as I go.
