The Clamp-O-Tron Jr. is a small docking port and very useful to attach Probes to a space craft. Using the Clamp-o-tron Jr. makes the connection a bit heavier than using a TR-2V with a piece of Cubic Octagonal Strut (0.02 compared to 0.016), but it creates a lot less drag (0.25 to 0.40). The advantage of using the docking port is the ability to add parts and modules later on the mission without wasting a big docking port or having to send an extra docking adapter.
|“|| Originally marketed as a child-size version of the normal Clamp-O-Tron, the Clamp-O-Tron Jr. soon found use among hobbyists and professional space agencies alike for its compact profile, lightweight structure, and all around cuteness. As a result of its small size, it's usable for transferring resources, but not crew.
As of version 0.19.1, the remark in the text about not being able to transfer crew applies to all docking ports, not just the Clamp-O-Tron Jr.
