Here's how I've rigged up my Paper Flasher from RH Designs.
I split a pair of little stainless hors-d'oeuvres tongs ($7) in half then heated the end and bent it. The flasher is glued with a double-sided foam sticky pad-thing. The flexible arm is a component of a Manfrotto-type Super Clamp. Having the clamp means that the setup is movable.
From now on, I'll have to pick up those little pickles with my fingers!
