These really do give you the ability to have a ‘third hand’ while working. They feature self-locking tweezers, mounted on a weighted round base. Ball joints let you adjust the tweezer to multiple angles. I use them when setting up my CLon cords for beaded braids, as shown in my DVDs. They are very handy when gluing braid ends into magnetic clasps. They are so useful you will probably want two!
WARNING: Don’t get the double third hand tweezer with the alligator clips. The serrated edges on the clips can not be used for all applications.
