Pipe Clamp Protectors

Iron pipe clamps can mar a finished surface
and leave nasty black stains if they touch a
wet glue line. My solution is to raise the pipe above the
surface with corrugated-plastic wiring harness covers
sold in automotive stores. They come in a variety of
sizes and are already split so you can slip them on the
pipe at strategic points.
