The Electric Optics Third Hand Tool is a great tool for using EL Wire, EL Tape, or just to have around for playing with electronics. The third hand has two strong clamp arms which provides a steady helping hand when working with small electronics. Heavy Duty iron base is great for soldering, and an all around favorite to have in times of need. Hands are detachable as well as the included 2.5" Glass magnifying lens. Each are on 4 way swivels so they can go in any position you desire.
