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

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 system of keeping them separate, it's not a problem.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
A must have for any hobbyist or even professional repairman.
