    how many clips do you get for 50 cents?

  • markmoran / about 9 years ago / 1

    Are these threaded? And are they larger than the ones that TOL-12033? Or put more simply, is ordering these an easy way to upgrade to larger alligator clips for the coolant-hose Third Hands? Thanks!

  • Every time, without fail, you check out your order only to realize you need something else a few days later...

    Please Edit the Picture to specify more accurately that these are sold in Single Units. I know the Description says this, but it is very easy for customers (like myself) to order a pair of these and think they're getting 4, with the picture.

    Need to also sell "boots" for these clips for people that want to roll-their-own clip leads.

  • D2 / about 13 years ago / 1

    What is the length of these clips, end to end?

  • Ah man, I've been looking for these!!! I love crimping stuff!!!

Good sturdy product

I bought 2 for a dollar to add onto a previous order. Not a bad price if you are just buying a couple or few to add to an order but a week or so later I did find a larger pack at either Lowes or Wal-mart that was a lot cheaper than 50 cents a piece. That being said I only needed a couple and can't speak for the cheaper ones. They were very sturdy with a strong grip. Very good for making arms that hold circuit boards when working on them or connecting to a pin and placing a multi-meter lead in the end so you don't have to hold a lead on a pin which I believe is a cheap and useful alternative to buying extra clip type multi-meter leads.
