Goes along with my ground chain / how to build custom fight stick videos. I’d had a lot of comments on how to use gator clips so I figured I’d do a tutorial. Hope it provides some help to someone :)

You know they sell multimeter leads that have clips?

They also sell ones that your existing probes go into directly.

Yeah. I appreciate the effort, but you can grab a set of those for a buck from China make your life easier. I will say though that I suppose for a one-off you can get the clips and multimeter at any hardware store in a pinch whereas these probes aren't typically available so it's still relevant.

It’s just based on what I have, plus the tutorial is also using gator clips to put a button inline on your setup so multimeter clips wouldn’t allow for that
