Review of Performance Tool Wiring PTW2993


Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a hook probe circuit tester. Now, this circuit tester easily identifies shorts in six volt, 12 volt, and 24 volt circuits, fuses, test connections, and wiring harnesses. It's great to have around the house, it's great to have around the shop. It features a wire piercing molded hook that locks onto the wires to free your hands while working. All you have to do is push this up, it's spring loaded, place the wiring inside here. The wiring that you're wanting to test.

Let go, put your fingers on top, push down to pierce it, and that's all there is to it. The extended molded hook allows for testing in confined spaces or with limited access. It does feature a high intensity light bulb, and a four foot long cord, that's insulated and resistant to oil and heat.I'm going to go ahead and show you how to use it. I have a power box here, I'm going to zoom out so you can see exactly everything that I'm doing. I just have a power box that we use, mostly for testing lights and trailer wiring, and stuff.

What I'm going to do is, I'm going to turn that on, so with power running to it, that means that my 12 volt supply, which is my black wire here, has power. To test that, I need to hook this to my ground connection, it's just a big alligator clip. I'm grounded, and then I take this, open it up so that I have area or space to put my wire through, and then I just allow the little point to do its job. Push down, and then because I have power running to it, the light comes on.Now, if I don't have power running to it, it's going to identify that and my lights not going to come on. Again, it allows you to easily and quickly identify issues in your wiring.

It's a nice easy way to identify, and a nice easy to use system. That's going to do it for today's look at the hook probe circuit tester.
