The smallest one I have seen is this homemade clip.

Yeah, those are awesome. I remember when Rob was doing that project, the hope was some manufacturer would pick up on it and make them... sadly one hasn't.

These ones are new since I last looked:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/283109177832

They are described as "pure copper", gold-plated. The teeth actually look like they could bite. So I ordered a couple sets. If they're steel, he can eat them.

I just got the mini-Kelvin clips referred to above. About 45 days from order to receipt. They are definitely better than previous similar ones I've bought. The contacts are indeed non-ferrous and gold-plated. And the teeth grooves actually are deep enough. Not as deep as I'd like to see but deep enough to grab fairly well. They are still available so I'll be ordering a few more sets just to have around. At this price they're a great deal.
