Croc clip connector for the Raspberry Pi

Andrew Gale (@pocketmoneytron) from pocketmoneytronics recently sent me a couple of his brilliant croc clip connector boards for the Raspberry Pi he had made.

The board is very simple, well designed and has three large holes so you can easily connect crocodile clips to the board. GPIO pins 23, 24 and 25 have been brought out to the edge via a series resistor along with a ground connection so that LED's can be attached.

I used a simple Python script using the new GPIO Zero library to test out the board, which is really easy to use and the boards work well. Overall I am very impressed with this great project.
