Product details

Heat Shunt

• A pair of locking metal tweezers• Clip to an electronic component to prevent the heat of soldering reaching the device

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They are made of aluminium and do not provide much closing tension, so it is a challenge to secure them properly to the component leg. A crocodile clip on the end - while a bit of a faff - will suffice to secure them to components and they do then provide good thermal relief.
