You have probably seen Fahnestock clips, but did you know that's what they were called? Me neither, until I first saw the name of them on a page in a MicroMark catalog a while back. When I saw this ad in Radio News, it seemed like a good opportunity pass it on.
You can still buy Fahnestock clips from MicroMark. Model train enthusiasts use them for wiring their layouts since they facilitate quick, easy changing of the hookups.
