Many people don't know the right way to properly crimp an alligator (or crocodile) clip onto a wire. This blog post (and video) shows how to do it step-by-step.
Step 1: Strip the wire to about 3/8"
Step 2: Bend the stripped wire end over the outer jacket
Step 3: Insert the wire inside the jacket
Step 4: Crimp
It's important to fold the wire over the insulation before inserting and crimping because it prevents the wire from being pulled off.
