Tool (100) comprises body (111), guide assembly (150) and cover plater (170) which house clamp assembly (130) and pin contact assembly (180). Clamp assembly (130) operates in scissor-like fashion for engaging and disengaging tool (100) from test field grips (401). Spring-loaded pins (181) penetrate apertures (403) within the test field to contact the test points. Adaptor (200) comprises body (211), center panel (240) and guide (260) which enclose pin contact assembly (280); in addition, cam-lever drive assembly (210) attached to body (211).
