Surely this patent will make the modellers smile! Like the lipstick in a lady's handbag, this item is always present in the field box of every modeller. And during their life they bought more than one. It's necessary to give current to the glow plug and start the engine - you can't go out without it. In the beginning it was developed using a common laundry clamp!
