    Bought another 24W PC Light (smallest PC light you get) but cannot get hold of a clip to hold it in place! ;(

    These lights don't really get too hot, could I just use a zip-tie as a makeshift clip? Or would it melt the plastic?

    You can get some "BIG" tie-straps/wraps, and it would then work. Else - if you want more permanent fixture, try and use Pratley's Putty on the lamp/globe fitting...
