Shipping this week to distributors will be our new alligator clips for drag controllers. Fully insulated clips will fit up to 5/16" size hook up studs. Super strong spring. Easily accepts 10 gauge wire. These are very compact and measure just 2.25" in overall length with the insulator.

 

Pricing to be posted soon.

 

Of course I now need a cool name for them. Calling them alligator clips will just not be good enough. What should I call them? Come up with a great name and I will send you something as a thank you!

Name them whatever you choose. I like Bear Claws.

 

Too bad there isn't a white one so they could be used for regular controllers.

Good suggestions so far. Many ones I have thought of already. I guess I will have to Google Fritz Von Erich to  find the reference here. Funny ones may not get chosen but they are certainly entertaining, who can come up with the most ridiculous one?

I use a different version of alligator clips that only come in black and red. One was painted white and it works fine. 😁

I'll do the same when I try Jim's version of clips. Death grip clips. 😉
