The little chain catchers look to be a simple and elegant cure to the common, very annoying chain drop issue but they are not cheap selling at around $30 to $40.
PBK is now offering the Token catcher for braze-on derailleurs at $13 shipped to the US. Just received mine yesterday, it's very light at 6gr and long enough to accommodate my compact crank set.

Do you think it will work for a clamp on, or do you know anything that will work with it? I have one of those dog collar one on my CAAD8, but it won't work with my carbon frame. Since seat tube is too thick. :(

That Token catcher won't work with a clamp-on. Don't know of one bigger than the Deda Dog Fang, which goes as big as 35.0mm (http://www.amazon.com/Deda-Elementi-35-0mm-roadbike-chain/dp/B001GSMJYU).

The k-Edge is available for clamp-on up to 34.9mm, but at $65. :eek:
if your front derailleur is a braze-on type attached to a clamp such as SRAM Red I think, then the Token catcher will work.

Third-Eye chain watcher works for me and it's cheap.
This one (http://www.universalcycles.com/shopping/product_details.php?id=1806) goes up to 34.9
