Default Re: Croc Clips at Lidl

Having found my local Lidl (in Maryport, not Workington), it seemed there were neither crocs nor 'gators lurking there.

Here, we have both Croc clips and Alligator clips. The croc clips have a different nose shape, flat tip, where the alligator clips have a pointier tip.

Dave, you've enlightened me. I always thought that Crocodile and Alligator Clips were the same thing.

Open to debate I think. Have a look at this link on Mueller's website:

https://info.muellerelectric.com/the...guide-to-clips

It is claimed that the company's founder co-invented the 'universal test clip' ie, the alligator or crocodile clip.

I always tried to buy the Mueller Electric products, as they were always the best.

Add that fuel to the cost.
To offset that today's Metro newspaper has a coupon giving 5 off a spend of 20 or more at Lidl...it's valid until close of business on the 19th.

Monmouth had them today- I came out with a set plus a cable tie and clip set, a useful mix of heatshrink, butt joint crimps, P clips and cable ties. Some spray paint, chipboard screws, a magnetiser/demagnetiser and a couple of lavender plants also came along too.

It was 14 miles out of my way, but in the Leaf that's only about 50p for electricity.
