It is often difficult to move small objects, such as probes or their holders, in environments where manual intervention is generally excluded for reasons of space or ambient conditions, such as vacuum, for example. In what follows, we describe a simple fastener mountable to a manipulator and that allows secure attachment to the object to be moved. This fastener provides, also, for a reliable electrical contact to the object.
