I have a few "c" and spring clamps but what really need is something
to hold two board perpendicular to each other so I can drive in
screws. I can't seem to hold it straight enough by hand. Any
I would not suggest them if I didn't like them. They don't offer much in
the way of force, but they hold things in place and properly aligned. The OP
said he was going to screw the pieces together. They are perfect for that.
Sort of like having another arm or two.

I use corner clamps with great success. Some people call them
picture frame clamps. They are economical and work well. I usually
use two at a time--one on each end of the board.
Making boxes or other jointery is simple with them. It takes
a bit of fussing to get the boards in just right, but when right, they
stay there. Drawers come out very square.
I notice that someone is making a more expensive version of
this product. It looks simpler to use, but harder to adjust because
one screw holds both boards. It also does not open wide enough for
much of the work I do.
