Hot Holder: Audio Soldering Aid

Stage Directions • Tools of the Trade • January 6, 2021

The Hot Holder is a revolutionary new soldering aid that is more useful than those “helping hands” alligator-clip parts holders that have been previously been one of the few choices for close work like soldering. Described as a “game-changer” for those of us that still create or repair audio/music gear things with soldering irons, The Hot Holder is designed for the most common male and female pro audio connectors, including XLR, RCA, 1/4″, etc., plus circuit boards, and wires.

Invented and made in the USA, The Hot Holder is a heavy, solid block of flexible silicone with grippy precision holes for audio connectors, parts, wires, and circuit boards in place. It has a suction-cup base, so it will securely stick to smooth surfaces, or even vertically on a window, and won’t move. It stays rock-solid on a bench in any orientation, grips parts tightly without scratching without residue, and most importantly for soldering, it won’t suck the heat out of your work.

The Hot Holder is priced at $39, with free shipping to any U.S. address.
