I did not want to have to take every recept apart. I was chasing an open neutral and it helped to pinpoint the location without having to open the boxes or use presence of current then multimeter for hot to ground and hot to neutral. Hope I don't need it again for ten years, but it did exactly what I wanted this time

Plug the device into the socket. The 3 lights on the end will light up in a certain pattern to tell you if the socket is wired correctly or not. There's a label on top of the device that shows you the different patterns of lights and what they mean.

My Wiggens failed and I needed to make sure there was no voltage to the outlet. Plugged in the Gardner Bender and it verified that there was no voltage and confirmed my Wiggens had failed. Bought a new Wiggens and will keep the Garner and use both.
