Rated 5 out of 5 by SparkyKC from Perfect for road tests. Although some have shown distaste for puncturing conductor insulation that is easily rectified with a dab of clear nail polish. Having used these for many years on industrial lift trucks I have found no other piercing probe that match the function or durability of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jahn Deaux from they have their place The previous reviewer is knocking the methodology not the tool. While i agree it is not a good idea to pierce insulation, i also recognize the rare necessity of needing to do it. That said, other than limited reach in tight spots, I personally prefer these to most other offerings. I am in the automotive field, and on rare occasions it is not feasible to capture a high speed glitch in garage conditions at idle. Sometimes i have to drive the vehicle in order to catch issues on my mobile oscilloscope, and that requires a rock solid connection. These will do it.After removing them, and proving your repair there are chemicals such as liquid tape that can seal the breach. Generally i back probe or alligator clip, in a perfect world that would suffice, but in a perfect world nothing would break down eliminating the need for my profession.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fieldservice1 from To puncture a conductor is a bad move After being in the profession for over two decades if you are faced with having to puncture a conductor. I would ask you to leave the jobsite or the shop as you are doing something wrong and I have found many other professionals feel the same way.
