Default Transistor thermo coupling

Hi..
I was pairring transistors today, and they needed to be coupled thermally, so I looked for shrinking tube, after lots of searching I realized I've used it up, what to do?, on the table I noticed a fuse holder, and figured that I could use the clamps around the two transistors, broke of the plastic, bended the metal a little, now I have a small fancy clamp, that always will keep a good pressure, I have loads of old fuse holders, and bet you do too, my little trick,

Good idea, but might want to epoxy it on, so it doesn't fall off and cause damage by shorting.

Noted, but it's really tight, so I'm sure it will stay put

Good hint, but aren't those clips also available as separate parts to be mounted on PBC's?
Best regards!
