                          Put an alligator clip on one to pass joints to somebody that was out of reach.

                            I had one with an alligator clip on it...it was kinda dangerous tho....my light switch had a hole in it with a string going up and over and one going down with a sinker on it....pull the string and tie it off and the light was on...undo it and it went off...i think that happened because of the clip...
