Description

This artifact is a cloth-covered cable with a plug finial at one end, and an 'alligator' clip at the other. The length of the cable is covered with a woven cloth that is mostly black, with bits of white. The plug is made from 7 wires bundled together and rounded-off at the insertion-end. The base of the plug is made of red plastic. The 'alligator' clip is attached to the cable by electrical wire, and is nearly entirely enveloped in a black shrink-to-fit tube.
