As far as helping hand tools go, this one is the cream of the crop. The Third Hand from Hobby Creek is a must have tool for prototyping, soldering, really anything at all where you need to hold something in place while you work on it. Unlike other similar tools, the Hobby Creek's unique ball-jointed hose allows for flexibility and articulation at every angle.

The Third Hand comes with a sturdy base and four arms which screw into the base. They even have silicon pads on the alligator clips to prevent damage to what you're working on, and keep it nice and secure.

  1. Review by Dale verified purchaser

    These are perfect for working on circuit board etc. The arms can be positioned into any configuration and the silicon tips on the clips make them safe to use on powered boards. (Posted on 16/11/2017)

  4. Review by Christopher verified purchaser

    A must have tool, perfect for holding PCB's, especially small ones whilst soldering components.
    Can also be expanded with more arms if needed.
    Great product, wish I had thought of it.
