Good buy for the hobbyist! – Electrical Wire Testing Hooks (10-Pack) Reviews

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.
Different colours might be a nice feature, but I used differently coloured wire for each hook, so as long as you have some system of keeping them separate, it's not a problem.
Really useful for the hobbyist whenever you need to probe circuits... especially those where a slip-up can cause damage or high-voltage areas... with 10 hooks you can attach to various test points and keep your fingers and meter probes safely away from the main circuit. Also makes for good quick-and-dirty hookups and connections.
A must have for any hobbyist or even professional repairman.
