I need to test a bunch of boards and need to hook my meter up to a 2pin .1" header on the PCB. I would like to avoid having to solder on a pin header, then disordering it when done to all these boards. Are there some special probes out there that would allow me to do this? I would like to avoid pogo pins as that would require me to make a little jig to hold them down while doing the tests.

You don't gno-me!

Are the holes plated through? If so you can often just stick a couple of header pins into the holes. Maybe if you use stacking male header pins you can bend them a bit to apply some clamping pressure.

Yea they are, and that is what I've been doing. Was just wondering if there was a tool made for this purpose that was easier to work with.
