They are made from mainly parts you can find in a workshop or house, though the alligator clips may need to be bought at a hardware store.
Anyway, this is a quick and easy way to help you out as you are working with your electronics innovating!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
- Alligator clips I got mine here
- Coat Hanger
- Wire Cutters
- Block of Wood
- Glue (optional)
Step 2: Cut the Hanger
I used wire cutters for this, but whatever cuts the hanger wire is fine.
Step 3: Slide Clips On
Step 4: Clamp Down
Put some elbow grease into this, because you don't want them to slide off. My wire cutters had some pliers on them, so I just used those.
Clamp in a full rotation, making sure to get the alligator clips secured tightly on the piece of wire.
Step 5: Drill Holes in Wood
I drilled three holes for my three pieces of wire.
Put the wire into the holes, and voila! You have a set of extra helping hands!
Step 6: In Action
You can use these whenever you are working with electronics, and you need something to be held.
I know, when I make my Altoids chargers, it is a pain having only two hands. Hopefully this will help me out, as well as anyone who reads this Instructable!
