    Where can I buy alligator jumper clips (just the clips with rubber
    insulators) that come in multiple colors? The only ones I can find not
    assembled come in red or black only, and the only ones in other colors
    (green, white, etc.) are complete with the wires soldered / crimped on. I
    want to build a bunch of jumper leads using some nice old cloth-covered wire
    I have - adding a bit of a personal touch to my workbench, you might say.
    You used to be able to buy them at Radio Shack, but I can't find them
    anywhere now.

    Rat Shack no longer caters to hobbists they got too good to sell usable
    parts.

    Here is one source:

    And another:

    I have delt with both companies and they are reliable.

    I hope this helps you. Both companies have a wide variety of parts and
    tools for sale.

    I'll be sure to pick up a few the next time I'm going by Tokyo......
     
  7. No; we (U.S.) have both 'gators and crocodiles. Crocs are the bigger
    clips with the wide jaws.

    Of course you have different words for them over there, dontcha?

    I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. Alligators have wide (convex)
    jaws, & crocodiles have narrow, (concave) jaws.

    I bought these clips at Fry's here in Vegas. We use them to hold bibs
    when we go out to eat. Work great! And everybody asks me about them.
    I don't need anymore shirts with soy sauce stains on them.
