The Trace all tone and probe does exactly what it said it would do...help identify a wire in a mess of wires. I would have had to use my volt meter on continuity with a long wire attached and then test the bare wire with the other lead. The tracer lets me attach the alligator clips to the wire at one end and the tip finds the wire through the insulation. Remember to shut off power. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Tone it emits is clear and sharp and can be heard from one room to the other. Works great to test live wires also so you DON'T get bit. It takes more batteries than some other models but seems to be pretty easy on batteries. They should last a long time. Very handy compact unit that is of good quality and easy to use.

Its compact and fits in the tool bag with room to spare. I like that it fits together so you dont have to look for all of the parts. The alligator clips make attaching to wires very easy. The tone is very aduable and easy to hear. Its loud enough that even without my hearing aids I can hear it loud and clear. I like that it is compact so it doesn't take up a whole lot of room. Its small enough that you can shove it in a pocket to carry it around with you. Its easy to use and easy to read. The LED window is just the right size. Love this tool.

Molded in Klein's signature yellow plastic, the unit is a must for anyone trying to figure out existing wiring either 110VAC or DC signal.control wiring. With a handy volume control and self storing signal generator/inserter, this Klein tracer is a great addition to any tool kit. Do be cautious to not lose the RJ11 style signal inserter leads as there is no convenient storage. We simply use a velcro wire strap and a piece of adhesive backed velcro to keep the leads attached to the main unit when not in use. Great tool - very HANDY! Even has a replaceable tip and tough plastic body that doesn't break with on-the-job drops. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

One of the handiest tools in your bag will be this TraceAll Tone and Probe. Without one you could spend forever trying to track down a cable. This can be handy for the homeowner, do-it-yourselfer or the professional. I wish I’d had this when I bought our house years ago. It’s a well-made device and the tips are replaceable if needed. Read the instruction manual. It also has some tips to get help locating a difficult wire and tracing down your problem. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Klein Tools TraceAll Tone and Probe is a helpful tool in my DIY tool box. I used this to trace low voltage wires (ethernet, phone, doorbell), and even speaker wires behind walls and then find them at termination points in our old house. Wall density (drywall vs plaster) impacts performance, but either way, it takes time and listening skills, and it’s not an exact science. This tool gave me a general idea of where the wires were behind the wall and direction they were headed. I even had some success tracing a dead Romex wire that terminated before the circuit breaker panel (Tip: For Romex, make sure power is off and put one of the alligator clips on the bare ground wire since it’s less shielded). The dual tones the transmitter generates might come in handy if two people are tracing wires at the same time, but it didn’t add any value in my application. Auto power off is helpful for saving the batteries especially since the tool uses eight LR44 batteries. Luckily, batteries are included, and average battery life is 10 hours on the tracer and 50 hours on the generator according to the manual. In my experience, performance becomes lackluster as the batteries get weaker. I also recommend removing the batteries if you’re not going to use the tool for a while since that’s a lot of batteries to replace. While the RJ11 jack may be heavy duty, the wires of the alligator clips seem delicate for field work and for the cost. Additionally, the self storing remote is helpful, but when I push the transmitter remote into the receiver, the plastic of the the receiver pushes apart 1/32 of an inch. Overall, a handy tool and a tone and probe is a must have for chasing wires. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Finally, a tool that is made well that helps me with the mystery wiring I have in this crazy house of mine. I've spent a fortune on an electrician to come out and solve various issues with the electrical. I had the electrician here so much I've observed what tools he has been using to decode this maze of wires. All of my outdoor lights just quit one night. It turns out the wiring was buried underground and at some point had been cut by a garden shovel. No problem until we received a deluge of rain and when the water reached the wire it was lights out. Tough to trace without a tool like this. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The VDV526 is a powerful tool to have if you do any repairs on telephone lines or wires that run into the wall or behind wall outlets, up into the attic. As you can see in the pictures there's a small yellow box & a longer probe. You plug the box onto a wire at one end & go to the circuit panel to run your probe over the terminals. The probe will light when it detects the signal from the yellow box on the other end. I got this because the writing in my terminal is old, faded & mislabeled I'm finding out as I am doing my remodel. This tool has helped more than I ever thought it would. Be sure to grab yours if you are a guy who likes to do it himself., like me!. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
