What kind of clamp would you use for holding a small control panel on a table firmly?

I don't have the space for a full-scale MAME project in my home, so I was going to build a couple smaller purpose built panels for use in my office. I've got a trackball setup and a spinner set that I am planning on making small dedicated cases for. These kinds of controls generally don't play well unless they are fixed in place (the trackball especially). So I want to design a case that I can affix to the desk in a manner I can easily remove it, but so it won't move around during game play.
So far, the only thing I can find is a clamp like the ones you find on swing arm lamps
. It seems like it would work, but the part that hangs down would interfere with the keyboard tray.
