Default screw clamp storage

I've read some of the posts concerning clamp storage but most deal with storing bar type clamps. I've seen store bought "solutions" to storing bar clamps but-----

Does anyone have an effective way/means to store the wooden screw clamps on an unfinished stud wall? Quantity is about 2 dozen, various sizes.

Currently I'm just screwing/tightening them to the stud and then hanging extras onto the handles.

There's gotta be a better way?!?!

Thoughts??

There is a method for storing the wooden hand screw clamps in this article - if you have open studs, you can modify what's shown to just having the projecting post screwed to the side of the stud rather than having the mounting flange in the back. For (4) clamps, the amount sticking out is probably going to be about the same as your present method but you won't have to tighten and then loosen when you're using them.

I clamp mine to the ceiling/floor joists all it takes is one twist to get them on or off.

Smitty, Here is a quick thought. And I also have it in a Sketchup file if interested, But since Router Forum WON'T ACCEPT SKP Files I would have to zip it.

The cleat/handle allows it to be cleated to a wall or used as handles to carry it. As drawn it will hold up to 5 large clamps and has a gap to allow dust to fall thru.

I only have four of these, So I lay them horizontally on a dedicated shelf. They are all laid on the same side so they can overlap. Wall space is nice, but I don't use them often enough to use that precious commodity for that kind of clamp. The shelf is only 6 inches wide and runs between two much wider shelves. Out of the way, but still handy.
