Quality clip leads? Where do I find them?
Where can I buy good-quality clip leads (alligator clip)? I work with middle-school kids who use clip leads to connect electrical components. Most of the clip leads offered on Ebay and Amazon are awful: thin wires crimped poorly to the alligator clips. High failure rates. I bet most of this junk comes from the same Chinese factory.
Many clips use a vinyl sleeve that quickly slips by 90 degrees so fingers press against the sides of the alligator clip rather than the jaws. I have tried to make my own clip leads. The alligator clips are OK, but again I'm stuck with the slippery vinyl boots. Kids, teacher, and volunteer are all frustrated. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you. --Jon
