Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A HUGE timesaver I found myself having to re-wire a motorhome's TV and sound system. With two antennas (satellite and local), a CATV input and DVD and VHS tuners, I had a real spaghetti-farm to trace. After many hours of trying unsuccessfully to find out where all the wires went, and at the suggestion of a professional installer, I purchased this Klein wire tracer. The next day, the job was finished in an hour...and it worked! The only additional parts needed are four double-female F connectors to attach the remotes to the ends of the cables. I only had one, so the job took a bit longer as I could only trace one wire at a time. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to trace cables, this is the tool to have. June 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I replaced my batteries, not throwing it away like others... True it tells you that you can't replace batteries, but its a nice device. So like usual I didn't follow instructions so I popped it open, and replaced the 2xCR2032 batteries and glued it back together with a $3.25 Loctite Plastics Bonding System. November 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yes, you can replace the batteries Even though the product states that you cannot replace the batteries, you infact can. You simple pry the casing open, and you will find that the unit uses two CR2032 batteries. August 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VDV COAXIAL EXPLORER PLUS TESTER Works exactly as advertised. Used it to identify and label individual coaxial cables in my garage's comm box. Also discovered a short in one cable, at kitchen. Simply re-terminated it with a new F connector - problem solved. Very useful. April 14, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by work tools I love the product, but dis appointed that product doesn't offer pieces sold separately, I lost the tips at work and had to repurchase the entire kit again. Over all give it a 10 for usage and dependability. October 7, 2014
