Backordered, again!  Send us a message and we will put you on a notification list.

The color of the tube has changed to a white-ish color. We will update the picture soon, apologize for the inconvenience.

This probe ends the frustration encountered with previous piercing probes. Designed and tested by a techncian for technicians. Proudly made in the USA!

* Long reach = 17.5-inches (handle to probe tip)
* Pierces wires from 10 to 18 gauge
* Banana socket connection or use an alligator clip right on the shaft just below the handle
* 5 piercing pins ensure good connection
* One-handed operation

The long 17.5-inch probe reduces your risk of getting burned by the exhaust or catalytic converter when reaching for oxygen sensors to check for heater power and ground, or power to an AC clutch on a PT Cruiser.

The long probe with one-handed action allows one to pull back the upper knob, hook the wire and release the knob in one smooth action.

To keep you probe working over the long hual we suggest you do the following:
1- When this probe is piercing a wire you should support its weight and do not let it hang. The long probe will act as a lever which puts excess force on the needles and delicate tip possibly damaging the probe. We suggest you securely anchor the probe to some stationary object with masking tape, rubber band, etc.
2- This probe is spring loaded and pierces the wire on it's own. Trying to force the needles into a wire could damage the probe.
3- Do not drop it.
4- Do not let anyone else use it! Borrowers can be abusers!

The Phil's Probe is designed to be used only on low voltage DC circuits such as the 12 volt DC automotive system circuits. DO NOT use on house or building type high voltage A/C (alternating current) circuits as an extreme shock hazard is present.
