Default Mini Clip Probe Restorer.

I purchased a number of these for various projects, but noticed after using for a short while especially the yellow ones they broke and became useless unable to grip anything, came up with this Idea using a boot lace ferrule and has proved to be successful and seems to be a permanent repair.

A very good idea.

Just a tip. If you're using a camera rather than a phone's camera to take close up pictures like this, select macro mode (often denoted by a flower symbol). You'll get much better in focus pictures.
