    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very usefull little hooks with plenty of options to attach wires to the other end. You can wedge a thin cable inside, or you could probably use a banana connector (I haven't tried it yet)
    Cons:
    Build quality could be better. The plastic shield around the end of the hook is very flimsy. The hook has also twisted sometime...

    Really Useful ... and, Well Priced

    posted by Lightfan99 on 01/30/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    I like the product, and I like the price. Yellow is a good colour, in that it stands out when you're working ; so that you can easily see where you need to probe --- after you've been temporarily distracted or taken away from your job.
    Cons:
    None! Okay, maybe one: the plastic seems a bit on the fragile side; so be careful not to drop one and step on it.

    Good buy for the hobbyist!

    posted by VintagePC on 08/17/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Sturdy construction, heat-resistant plastic. I was worried the plastic would deform when soldering wires to the tabs at the top, but it held up! Sturdy little hooks work well even for closely spaced leads.
    Cons:
    Different colours might be a nice feature, but I used differently coloured wire for each hook, so as long as you have some syst...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    *ten* clips at 29 cents each !!! Very useful for DIY electronics hobbyists, especially to connect to IC pins, etc. Build quality adequate for the purpose.
    Cons:
    Suitable wire must be soldered to the clip. Care needed when soldering, as the plastic can easily melt. As all other reviewers ...

    Test Small Parts

    posted by apoapsis on 04/28/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    These hooks can hold very small parts, even those with very closely mounted leads. Spring loaded action seems to be of durable quality.
    Cons:
    How about some red clips at this great price and quantity? Using all one color can lead to polarity mistakes, whick can sometim...
