Described herein are embodiments of an electrical terminal test point that can be temporarily attached to an electrical terminal (e.g., terminal block) in order to provide an interface between the test leads/jumpers of a test device and the electrical contact points of the electrical terminal. In one aspect, embodiments of the electrical terminal test point provide a shield for the electrical contact points of the electrical terminal (whether or not being used for testing) from inadvertent contact and prevents test leads/jumpers of test device from accidentally falling of or being knocked off of their contact points. Electrical terminal test point can be installed and removed without affecting the electrical connections made by electrical terminal (e.g., without removing terminal screws of electrical terminal).

An connection apparatus for fishing tackle that is adapted to allow the securement of the apparatus to a fishing line by the half-hitch, overhand knot or any other low dexterity knot through the use of at least one dual conical bores passing through the body of the apparatus. The apparatus generally incorporates another fishing tackle article such as a hook or split ring but can also be utilized alone when made of a suitable floating material. The configuration of the dual conical bores in relation to each other and in relation to the linear axis of the apparatus, lends itself to different purposes and different methods of securing different fishing tackle articles to the connection apparatus. With the use of a simple linear connector, two connection apparatuses may be adjoined to allow fishing lines of different sizes to be connected.
