I've owned a Tram lavaliere for years. Unlike most, the Tram comes with a wide variety of mounts.
Until now, I've always used the alligator clip. I also understand the tie pin mount.
There are other mic clips included with the Tram which I've never used or seen used: two types of vampire clips, a foam windshield mount, and a clip atop a small leather strip.
Just wondering what applications these are useful for, and how to handle mic placement. For instance, I'm wondering how vampire clips are used. If they are stuck into something like fabric, what keeps them from falling off?
Try using the vampire clip to attach the mic to someone wearing a polo/collared shirt. You can fasten the vampire into the side of the collar near the opening of the shirt. Sometimes it's a good spot to put the mic, especially if you can't see it.
