Backstage slang: The small square-headed nut on the side of a C-clamp used to hang a light from a bar. Secures the light so it won't swing side to side. So called because they are easy to over-tighten, snapping the nut and making the clamp useless.
Stagehand: Fuck! I busted the fucking fucknut!
Lead Electrician: *sigh* get a new clamp from storage and swap it out... fast.
