Mini test clip adapters

  • Purpose: Adding these clips to the probles on the multimeter leads makes troubleshooting your circuits much easier. It allows hands-free testing because the clips stay attached to the leads.
  • Source: Radio Shack store. CAUTION: Radio Shack's mini hook clips look almost identical to the mini test clip adapters - you DO NOT need the mini hook clips. Be sure to get part number 270-334.
  • Approximate Cost: $3.50 per pair

Alternatives

The clip adapters can be hard to find. A good alternative is to have a set of mini-grabber probes that plug directly into your DMM

A dual set of mini-grabber and banana clip leads is also available from Amazon.


Another alternative is a alligator clips with pig tails from Sparkfun for $7. Those clips do not connect directly to a multimeter, but the alligator clip end could be attached to your multimeter probe and the pigtail could be inserted in a breadboard.
