What does a coupler clamp do?

I've always heard them called "Scaff Clamps".  Seems like there's many different names for the same thing.

Scaffolding Clamps have been called "Cheeseborough Clamps" or "CheeseBurgers" for as long as I can remember.

I always refer to the cast Scaffolding type as Cheeseburgers, but I call the machined nice looking ones "Swivel Couplers" or "90 deg Clamps" as the case may be.

Here are some pics of both types in the swivel style. Both types also come in 90 deg fixed, as well as HALF Couplers that allow you to mount 1/2 of the clamp on an item (like a lighting fixture yoke) and hang it from a pipe.
