Internal vs external refers to if you were squeezing them open vs squeezing them closed to release them.. if that makes since to you. One opens, one closes the clip to release.
One on the outside of the work piece.
One on the inside of the work piece.

Those look like they'd do the same exact thing. 🤔

Either one would probably work fine. I went with the precision one; it has a spring also.

Found a video that spells the difference, and also how to pronounce Kuh-nee-pecs.:
