Grabber clips and hook clips, sometimes known as test clips or IC clips are small plastic probes which fit onto the end of a test lead. They are used to create a temporary electrical connection which can be used with delicate components. Hook clips, grabber clips and test leads are used together to test electrical connections. When connected to a device, such as a multimeter, you can monitor and test electronic circuits. This is essential for maintenance or looking for faults. Hook clips, grabber clips and test leads can also be used during prototyping on a breadboard.
