Simple How-To in Electrical Wiring - Affixing Wire Terminal to Alligator Clip

(...CONTINUED from Previous Page)

Next step is to connect both terminals of each wire piece to the alligator clips and/or the clamp-type connectors. As I mentioned on previous page, each bare terminal should be no less than two inches long in order to be properly attached to a connector. First, let's connect one terminal of the wire piece to the positive alligator clip (its handle insulators are red).

First, the insulator is dislodged off the handle on which the screw is positioned. Then the wire is ran THROUGH the handle insulator and through the hole towards the screw until the wire can not be pulled any further. The insulator is put back onto the handle, or this can be done at last.

Then you unscrew the screw a little and wind the wire around the screw twice. Unscrew the screw out of the hole, and while holding it, wind the wire around itself to make a knot. Twist the screw to tie the knot.

Then screw the screw back into the hole, as tight as possible, to make a good contact.
