Have questions about a SparkFun product or board? This is the place to be.

I just received in the mail the Third Hand Kit that I previously ordered. However, it is not obvious to me how the alligator clips attach to the yellow ends of the flexible blue arms. I see that the 2 screws each screw into the threaded ends of the alligator clips, but I do not see how the screws then attach to the yellow ends of the blue flexible arms, and I am reluctant to try to forcefully remove the yellow ends from the blue flexible arms for fear of breaking them. When I click on the "Product Video" link at the Sparkfun Third Hand website (, no video appears even though the website says: "Note: For assembly instructions watch the product video below." I tried clicking more than once on the "Product Video" link, and each time I see "No videos found" and a blank screen. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
