What about the clamp?

What happens to the clamp, or rather the energy in the clamp, when the spring is dissolved? The clamp compresses the spring, so there is an interaction of forces between them.

(I've just speed read the discussion, must read it again carefully and think about it for a bit. But the clamp question just popped up in my mind.)
