Those Difficult Situations!

Circuit Buddy is the ideal test light or wire piercing probe to use when working in difficult situations like under the dashboard of a vehicle.

Hook and pierce wires

In difficult conditions you can easily hook and pierce wires with a one handed operation and be certain that you make contact every time.

Hands free lock

Unique lock design to retain hands free contact.

2 in 1 design

Use the Probe on contact points or with the housing to pierce wires.

What About Corrosion?

When working inside of a vehicle there would be no corrosion risk when used as a wire piercing probe. Therefore even the connectors found inside of a vehicle would not be protected against the environmental conditions due to no corrosion risk.

Why NOT to use a “globe type” automotive test light on sensitive circuits?

Why NOT to use a “globe type” automotive test light on sensitive circuits?

Automotive test lights / circuit testers have been around for quite some time and although effective to use it could cause damage. The standard test light has a sharp point to pierce into the wire and you normally end up poking your finger and that really hurts. In most cases the test lights operates with a globe that indicates a live circuit.

About Wire Piercing Probes

Wire piercing that leaves a hole in the insulation could lead to water entry and corrosion that could lead to a failure in the circuit.

Wire corrosion
Wire corrosion need to be considered when working on wiring that is exposed to harsh conditions. When working inside of a vehicle there would be no water present and therefore no corrosion risk. To pierce wires should be avoided when working on wires exposed to harsh conditions.
Brush-on liquid insulating
In the situation where there is no other alternative, it would be best to make the smallest hole possible when puncturing the insulation. The hole would then have a better chance to seal after the test. When working in harsh conditions it would be recommended to also reseal the hole with self-fusing silicone tape or a brush-on liquid insulating material, which is often called “liquid tape”.
