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?

A famous wrestler, whose real name was Jack Adkisson.

His son Kerry Von Erich, became even more famous.

Obviously a joke.

While I like Bear trap, I think drag racers have adopted this style, because of speed and ease, of hooking up at big events, where you are on the clock.

Hence "Quik clips".

And the winner is...Bill from N.H.

 

I am dropping the "s" in "Bites"and will name them "Big Bite" drag clips. The main problem they solve is that regular alligator clips do not open wide enough so a name that conveys this clip feature like "Big Bite" is perfect. I had "Big Mouth" clips but the action of "Biting" the hook up stud is better.

 

Honorable mention to Jay for leaving off the "s" in Bites. Tony had the funniest one with "Nipple clamps". Swiss had the most off the wall suggestion for his wrestler name. Eddie had the best name for describing the actual look of the clips with "Pterodactyl" clip. Unfortunately the Pterodactyl clip name would stress me out trying to spell it correctly every time! :)

 

Bill, email me and let me know what you might like as a prize. Something around $20 or so? Set of new handles? Ball bearing kit? "Big Bite" clips? Do you even drag race?

Unfortunately they do not offer this style clip with a white insulator. Having the insulator stay in place is a nice feature of these clips.

Dude, a little sandpaper, a little primer, a little white paint. Canada can do.
