An accessory gripping mechanism includes a camming lever and first and second relatively movable main body sections. The first main body section includes,a first clamping jaw for engaging a first side of the accessory, and an opening shaped to slidably receive the second main body section, and the second main body section includes a second clamping jaw for engaging a second side of the accessory. The camming lever has at least one overcenter camming surface that engages a cam-engaging surface of the first main body section, such that pivoting of the camming lever causes the camming lever to pull the second main body section in a direction that causes the second clamping jaw to move towards the first clamping jaw and thereby grip the accessory.
