test probe leads that plug into jumper box

the adapter would be the lighter adapter that would plug into the jumper box. Trying to find these leads on line but can't find them. I hear strap-on(snap-on) makes em but I'd rather save some money if possible. Any suggestions?

Pretty much a useless post without pix. I've been around the block a few times and have no clue what you are asking...

If you know what they are you don't have to see a pic.

here's a pic. would rather not pay $40. Might just try to make my own if they're all in this price range.

First time I've seen or heard of the things. $45?! Seriously?!

IMHO, if you aren't comfortable wiring a couple of alligator clips to a lighter plug, then you shouldn't be messing around with electricity at all.

If you plan to test a power window motor, make sure the socket's fuse is big enough. (DO NOT REPLACE IT WITH A HIGHER AMP FUSE!) If it's not, make a set of jumpers with an in-line fuse holder that you can connect directly to the battery.

Buy this and this for about $15 and you're in business. Don't even have to solder...

hahaha-awesome dude, thanks! These come in very handy. I get a lot of jobs where the door frame is jacked so we have to get a used door. It's anyone's guess where that window will be on the new one...usually rolled down so for the most part the window needs to go up to get the handle, down for the belt moulding, and down for the painters. Those come in handy to power up the window on the bench. Also works great when you tear down the driver's side door and the windows are in a series circuit, and you still have to gut the other doors for say a blend, which means they can't operate without the controller plugged into the driver's side and some inner door panels don't allow you to take them off so in case you don't do the rear doors first you can always reach for these instead of lumbering around a driver's side door panel.
