Are you frustrated with the lack of dexterity from most third hands? The SparkFun Third Hand gives you the ability to hold a board between two alligator clips on two flexible arms with multiple points of articulation. The arm’s wide range of articulation gives you access to any angle of the board that you are currently working on, making soldering that much easier. The SparkFun Third Hand also won’t move around while you work thanks to a heavy aluminum base supporting the arms.

Even though we give you two alligator clips for the flex arms, that shouldn’t restrict their functionality to just holding a PCB. Add an LED for better lighting, a fan to keep solder fumes out of your face, or a magnifying glass to get an up close and personal look at what you are working on.


Having issues removing the end part to fit the clip? try a little heat, a bowl of hot water should help.

Note: For assembly instructions watch the product video below.

Kit Includes:

  • 1x Aluminum Base Plate
  • 2x Flex Arms
  • 2x Alligator Clips
  • 2x Alligator Clip Covers
  • 2x 1" 6-32 Phillips Screws
  • 4x Silicon Bumpers

Goods arrived promptly, with no information regarding fitting the crocodile clips, looked on YouTube and found instructions, applying those instructions and trying to disconnect the flexible tubing it snapped. I contacted supplier and they suggested warming up the tube. I used a hot air gun and it came apart without snapping. A replacement flexible was sent and arrived next day, good service

I love the convenience of this. It is a little tricky to get it set up however, once assembled it is great. Very sturdy!
