Great Gift for the Guys: Amprobe VP-600SB Non-Contact Volt Probe

Here’s a great stocking stuffer idea for the man in your life! It’s an Amprobe VP-600SB Non-Contact Volt Probe, which tests AC voltage cables, circuit breakers, appliances, wall sockets, junction boxes, fuses, and breaks in wires without disconnecting them from your electrical system. When it detects AC voltage from 100-600 volts, it lights up, vibrates, and beeps! This is a great safety tool for the do-it-yourselfer.

Or pick up an Amprobe VP-600SB Non-Contact Volt Probe now if you’re having that age-old problem of broken Christmas lights! Here are some tips from Amprobe for checking strings of holiday lights:

The worst part about getting ready for the holiday season is detangling all of your lights. What’s even worse is trying to find out WHY over half of your tangled lights aren’t working! An Amprobe VP-600SB, noncontact voltage detector, can save the day.

The Amprobe voltage detector, an easy-to-use, handheld tool available at Lowe’s Home Improvement Centers nationwide, lets consumers safely check the presence of AC voltage in holiday light strings without creating any disconnections.

• When the probe finds active current, the instrument will beep, light up and vibrate.

• The electrical probe is easy to use. Simply start at either end of the light strand and work your way down the strand in the opposite direction.

• If the lights in the strand flash, beep and vibrate rapidly as you move the probe near them, the bulbs and sockets in that area of the string of lights are fine. If there is no flashing or beep, that bulb needs to be replaced.

• If the flashing or vibration appears minimal along one section of the strand, one or more bulbs in that section probably need to be replaced, also, because they are likely close to burning out.

• Running the tool over a specific bulb will clearly identify one that needs to be replaced.

• The Amprobe probe is also an excellent tool to help you outdoors or indoors fix a potentially big problem, quickly and accurately. It works to test outlets, electrical cords and extension cords, as well.
