    Been using these things for YEARS as needle-nose pliers holders. Clip them to the side of desks, workbenches, tables–you name it. Keep the little handles/wires out and put the pliers through the open areas.

    A sideview of the whole thing is below. ASCII ART FTW!

    No no no, that just won’t do. I came up with a much better (safer) solution for your iPod/Desk solution. I’m sure that with some slight tweeking on the clips you could fit a dock in there.
