After only a few uses, the hook became stuck inside the black probe. The plastic nest for the hook tore off in the process of pushing on the hook. There's almost nothing left of the tip of the black probe now. It's usable, but barely. These aren't any better than Radio Shack's. Plugs are too thin to fit my voltmeter's sockets snugly. Inexpensive, but still not a good buy.
Jumpers worked better than expected... Recommend you add additional colors...

Says one accountant (who was using Banana to IC Hook Cables) to another accountant: Accountant #1: How's it going today? Accountant #2: Not good. I'm in the red today--how about you? Accountant #1: I'm always in the black.
Q. What happens when you plug a black banana jack into a red banana plug? A. Cute kids.
Q. Why are these cables only 36 inches long? A. If they were any longer I would not be able to connect two of them together so that I always have my safety glasses with me.
These jokes are making me go bananas. But the more I read them, the more I'm hooked.
Sorry, but I have to get back to work. ; ( -TS.
My bench power-supply now has both alagator clips (which were included) and IC clips thanks to their passthrough design. I now have both always available! Woohoo! The bana-clip shuffle has ended! Thanks!
The set works as expected. I haven't used them extensively so I don't know about the longevity of the hooks and things like that, but it does a nice job of freeing up my hands to push buttons and flip switches while watching the meter. I'm using them with a small, entry-level Gardner Bender meter.
I’ve use these a few times now since I purchased them and they hang on well.the spring tension could be a tad stronger to ensure they don’t slide off when jockeying components.
Like having an extra set of hands. They work great. I am sure their are better quality cables out their but for the price I can't complain. They get the job done.
