Ben there done that it gets in the way of your clamps unless you clamp the cross in the center. The rounded tip on the string puller goes right through the intersecting string very easy and the hook pull the dampener right along with it.

Or if you have to use one use a rubber band. It is easy to string them across the mains and they don't get in the way of the clamps.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege
