NEW PRODUCT – IC hook set (9 pcs). When alligator clips and even scope probes are too large, IC hooks come to the rescue! These fine clips are very nice, and come in a set of 9 colors (black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, gray). They provide a nice strong grip on SOICs, TQFPs, anything with 0.6mm pin pitch or larger. The hook is made of strong gold-plated ‘piano wire’, and there are angle connectors so that you can slip these onto your Saleae Logic probe cable (to replace the all-black ones) or any 0.1″ socket jumper cables. These are a little more expensive than low-cost hooks but we’ve compared them and found that these work much better at gripping small pins
