These are very necessary for anyone doing electronic work. You use the hook at the end to 'catch' a point in your circuit to measure, and attach a wire to the back end of the 'thing'. The wire is best soldered, not tied or wrapped! Both the 'business' end, and the end where you solder the wire, have a solid copper finish (maybe they're 100% copper - don't know). This is very important for ease of use, as soldering to different metals may get tricky - copper works best!
They all come in a single color, and this is really a major drawback - in fact, it's downright stupid! Given the good build quality and good copper conductor inside, it's very disappointing that the manifacturer did not choose to simply mix a few colors in the bag.
In fact, for the hooks to be useful, you really want to have an assortment of various color masking tapes, and 'color' them yourself with tape, to distinguish between the different probes.
Hooks are indispensable in getting circuits to work reliably, and can be expensive in single quantities. The price is great for a pack of 10.
Get them, and get some masking tape in various colors, and you're in business!
