I think the OP is probably thing inking about flying clamps. With the distortion of the strings if you remove the clamp and move it only using a single clamp and straightening the strings each time you can also get that distortion out.

If using glide bar clamps (short bar only) then you're correct. If you have a long glide bar clamp for the crosses then you must use one clamp unless you are doing a 50/50 like the mains.

It all depends on the stringer, clamps, and method of stringing.
