Monster Cordless Circuit Tester MSTCHT504 Features
The Monster cordless circuit tester uses the tech’s hands and body to complete the circuit when testing for electrical continuity. With a finger or hand touching the pocket clip on the tester, another part of the body just needs to be touching ground. As the needle-sharp probe comes in contact with power, the LED light will illuminate and an audible beep will sound. In addition to power, the user can also determine polarity.
In addition to power, the user can also determine polarity. If the probe is touching 12V+ (positive), the LED will illuminate red. However, if the probe is touching the ground side, the LED will illuminate green.
There is no battery to replace, the internal capacitor is powered and charged with use on the 12V systems. Also, the pocket clip that acts as the ground can be rotated to a more familiar place for the user’s finger or hand to touch.
With so many mechanics in the field, it helps to set yourself apart from the rest. An easy way to do this is becoming a pro at diagnosing and troubleshooting. Using a simple and small tool like the Monster cordless circuit tester allows you to jump into the meat of it right away. Take the top off the fuse block, and quickly touch all the fuses to determine what is and is Not getting power. We can think of a host of other applications for this great little tool.
