Was the clip-on logic probe part of the same family? (the one that clips on to a 14/16 pin DIP and auto senses the power pins) The pouch I have for the probe set also has a pocket for the clip-on probe. A very cool tool, but I haven't used it since about 1985.There were several sets. 3 probes, logic clip (maybe) in a pouch. Ditto (minus the current probe but definitely with the clip) in a box, optimized for TTL. Much larger box with a clip on logic analyzer dongle that does individual chips.
Note that there were several varieties of logic probe and pulser, one optimized for TTL, one general use. (T on the end of the model number)
Some probes had the BNC on them, those were meant to be used with the early logic analyzers which had 5 volts on a BNC at the back (I'll never understand why HP decided that back was good for short cables...)
the grabbers that will work are the ones with round pins, such as the ones for the very early LA's such as 1600, 1610, or so.
