    The alligator clips fit tightly and make it easy to grab terminals and spade clips. The leads are as tangle free as it gets.
    I’ve had several sets of the TL175. I like them but they don’t last about a year. Eventually they get a weak spot and your ohm readings will be all over the place when you move the leads. Mine will sometimes read 10 ohms when shorted together.

    I just buy the standard leads and keep a couple of xtra hanging on my cage. Ive got some nice silicone leads with various ends but I dont drag them out everyday.. especially on something simple like a res call or maint.

    These guys are highly recommended over at the EEVblog. Silicone leads, gold plated tips, etc.
    Once my Fluke TL175s wear out, I'm springing for a set from them.

    Any suggestions for leads that are silicon, have good screw on and easy to use alligator clips? Pic shows original leads.

    The Brymen Silicone Gold Plated Test Leads / Probes for Multimeters CAT IV 1000V are excellent too. Highly recommended from the EEV forums as well. Amprobe, Greenlee and a few others rebadge Brymen meters and related products. I think I own like 10 to 12 Brymen leads sets now.

    I like the sure grip probes with the jaws on the tip but carve the plastic off the tips
