As mentioned previously, a condition necessary to make an item Muktzeh Mahmat Hesron Kees is that one needs to be careful to use the item for its intended purpose only. However, if one doesn't mind using the item for other purposes, it does not become Muktzeh Mahmat Hesron Kees even if no one else in the world would use it for a different purpose. For example, a stamp can be considered Muktzeh Mahmat Hesron Kees since one can not mail letters on Shabbat (which makes it a Kli Shemelachto Le'isur) and in general one wouldn't use a stamp for any other purpose. However, if Reuven uses his stamps to keep track of where he is up to in the Sefer he is learning, his stamps are not considered to be Muktzeh Mahmat Hesron Kees. Instead they are considered to be Kelim Shemelachtam Le'isur, and may be moved in certain circumstances. Items that are Muktzeh Mahmat Hesron Kees may not be moved directly for any reason. This includes moving it to use the place it is occupying or even moving it into the shade to protect it.
