Young Inventors and Future Engineers

alarmhat Recently a young inventor and aspiring engineer shared their ALARM HAT created for a school invention project. She thanked us for the miniature alligator test leads that helped her project be a success at her class inventors fair. E-Z-Hook markets our products to all kinds of industries and it is always fun to hear about uses that we never expect. With the help of our 284M miniature alligator test leads this young inventor was able to connect to a snap circuit panel they had created and control the noise to the ALARM HAT from a few feet away. They even promoted the various colored leads and lengths  as design options and customization alternatives for this cool device. Better yet, they got an A on the project! Way to go!

Did you know this alarm hat is apparently perfect for annoying siblings? It’s so easy, just put the hat on them and turn it on to ring or buzz.

Thanks for sharing! Keep inventing!
