Default Shorting jumpers for octal sockets

Good morning everyone,
Can someone point me in the direction of shorting jumpers for octal sockets. I have searched the Internet and have not found any.


Thanks,
Ray

To what end? To make a "plug" I've hacked the bottom off a relay. Used it to make an easy plug in item to check bias on output tubes.

Two answers I can think of
(1) You can buy octal plugs. These were sometimes used for interconnects and power output on old amps. No reasonable engineer would do this in a new design today but they sell the plugs for use with old amps. You could make a shorting plug with one of these

(2) A simple jumper is just a short section of #12 solid wire bent to a U shape. Maybe leave some insulation on the exposed part

But why would you want to short two pins?
