Alligator clips are sprung metal fasteners with interior serrated jaws that are most often used to attach an electrical cable to another device. Banana clips are referred to as plugs for the male type and jacks for the female type. They are one-wire conductors used to connect wires to equipment. The end of the banana plug has a four-leafed spring that clips into the jack. Banana plugs are most often used as terminals for patch cords on electronic test equipment or for cable ends to connect an amplifier to a speaker.
