Default Glow Plug Clip for Nelson plugs

Anyone know of any product for sell that fits the Nelson style glow plug. I hate alligater clips. Would rather have a hand held lipo or NiCad that twist on, but can't find one. What do you guys use?

Second, is the Merlin standard head plug just as good as the Nelson plug on Dub's 426 engine? Thanks in advance.

From what I'm hearing, it's even better ( the Merlin plug) in the 426 engine

Which Merlin plug seems to work best on the Jett 426?

I think Daroll still sells these clips:

Scroll down a little bit. I just solder them to my glow Driver.

The Merlin 1125A plug was developed for the Jett 426 motor. It is in the hot heat range (red seal) and has a 5/16" body that will fit a standard twist on glow plug driver. You can get them from Darrol Cady along with about everything else you need. A package of 5 should last you a very long time.
