I just ran into a problem that my short clamps would not reach, and I sure did not want to hold it until it dried. So here is a solution, that saves me a bit of time. Use your tweezers to clamp down, then use the clamp to hold that down. Now I have several sets of tweezers, I used the locking ones but it wasn't doing the job. I haven't seen this solution, so I thought I would post it. Here are the pics.

That makes a LOT of sense when you need a point that has to fit into tight spaces. Clever.

Great idea and tip Joshua.  I'll definitely use that technique in the future.  Thanks a lot.

Thank you for the good comments, I will admit though I made a mistake in glueing the sway bar to the wrong location lol. The springs actually go in the spot that I glue down. Oops

 But at least it was a mistake with good technique.

It's such a great tip that I think none of us noticed the bit about the misplaced swaybar!   Seriously that's a great tip to transfer the clamping pressure where it's needed.
