Film industry slang term for a clothespin. Legend has it that it was a crew's item code for clothespins. Also see bullet.
If the lamp is hot enough to melt tape, you can instead use a c-47 to attach a filter to the hot part of the light.

The term used in the film King industry to refer to a clothespin. Stems from the old Hollywood film supply warehouse where the clothespins were on asile C, bin 47. Very handy tool for all aspects of filmmaking, commonly pinned to crewmember's shirts for easy accessibility.
