This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the Grabbers, Hooks category on

Grabber and hook-style test clip products are used to make temporary electrical connections, commonly using a J or hook-shaped contact that makes electrical contact with a conductor while also providing mechanical attachment under spring tension. They are generally better adapted to gripping small conductors than alligator test clips, though they also tend to be more fragile and susceptible to damage. Products designed to be directly attached to a test lead as well as those which terminate in a connector of some style are included.
