    Default Alligator clamp replacement

    Subsite TX if it matters. Looking to buy replacement alligator clamps. These are a pain. I've repaired the lead to clamp connection more times than I care to count. So if one breaks in near future I want some on hand for backup. These have a nut that screws down on top of butt connector with an eyelet in butt connector

    We buy jumper cable clamps from a car parts supply, they work better than anything that comes attached to purchased leads. Use them to connect to transformers, spigots, gas risers, the back side of gas meters, and small pipes.

    One of those simple solutions that doesn't occur to you until someone points it out to you. I shoulda been doing that years ago.
