I bought a couple of clips like this . Does anyone know how to connect them?

enter image description here


To attach them to a wire before initial use pull out the plug on the top, feed a wire through the hole in the plug, solder the wire to the metal part on the other piece, then push the plug back into place.

To attach them to a device simply push on the plug until the metal hook extends from the end, hook it onto the device, then release the plug.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Solder them quickly with the minimum amount of heat required to get a good joint. The plastic typically used in these clips melts very easily. Commercially-assembled ones are often crimped with a small ferrule rather than soldered. \$\endgroup\$ – Dave Tweed Jun 18 '16 at 14:51
