Shopgirl: Product Friday!

Ever had your lights blink out when it wasn’t storming outside? I know: frustrating! With this new tool, I can turn on the flashlight to light my way to the problem, then use the testing device on the end to figure out where the electrical path is broken. Cool, right? It will be totally handy when I’m working on any new DIY lighting or electrical project. Its ingenious design makes it a must-have around the house.

Here’s how it works: 1) Turn the Megatester on to create a path for three volts of battery power to the bulb and it will light up. 2) Pull the clip off. When you break the path the light goes off. 3) Use the clip and the end cap to divert the three-volt battery power in the -tool to other •circuits or paths to see if they are complete. Lights on: You’re good. Lights off: You’ve got a problem.

If you’re testing an 11OV or fluorescent bulb and there seems to be a problem, think again. The reason your tester isn’t responding is because the tool won’t test these two types of bulbs. The Megatester tests 3V, 6V, 12V, 24V, and single or double filament bulbs.
