Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

A must-have tester for audio/video installers and datacom technicians. The WireTracker Wire Tracer raises the standard for classic tone and probe products. Patented unit traces non-energized wire for correct identification while the unique design nestles the probe within the unit to keep components together during transportation or storage to avoid loss. Different terminations are also self-contained within the unit, making it a must-have for Voice-Data-Video installations or remodels. The transmitter connects to un-energized cables, wires or fuses while the receiver probe traces the wire path. Audio and visual indicators quickly identify the signal strength to allow for precise wire identifications while the adjustable sensitivity dial ensures positive identification of a single wire when multiple wires are routed in close proximity. Multi-purpose wire tracer identifies coax, CAT5, speaker, phone, or any non-energized (non-live) wires. Adapter plugs include: RJ-45, RJ-11, coax, automotive fuse blade, and insulated clamps. Unit features both audible (beeping) and visual (bright light) indication. Operates from (2) AAA batteries (transmitter) and (4) LR44batteries (receiver) and includes an auto-off function in the transmitter to save battery life (batteries included in package). Engineered to withstand a 10 ft. drop and 250 lbs. crush rated with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

August 21, 2015
Good Day! I have an electrical outlet that shows as no power going to it. The outlet is on one of four circuits in our downstairs, so I can turn off power to all of downstairs? Will this device allow me to trace the wire from 14 gauge wire that is dead to another outlet? This would enable to trouble shoot which wire is the problem?

Answer: 
Yes, works on dry (non powered) lines, unlike the other style circuit breaker locator that requires the transmitter to be on a powered circuit like this unit: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Klein-Tools-Digital-Circuit-Breaker-Finder-ET300/202330830?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal1_rr-_-203345761-_-202330830-_-N

Lan WireTracker Tone and Probe Wire Tracer is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very loud. This little gadget would be fine for home use, but was so quiet that in the environment where I tried it it couldn't be heard. The way it all fits together in its own case is very convenient, however the probe needed a bit more filler so it doesn't fall out in a tool bag. Product has a lot of good things going for it, however falls short on practicality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just to clairfy the purpose of this tool Please note that this product is NOT intended to follow burried wires by running the transmitter or receiver along the wall. This product is meant to directly connect to the end or beginning of a wire run. In my case it was old circuts in a house. The breaker kept tripping so i left it off and used this tool to trace a non-live wire run. I connected the alligator clips to the dead outlet wires and made sure the power wire that was conncted to the breaker was the same one as the dead outlet. I got a little interference but it only beeps when youre right on the other end of the wire (in hand and not burried). The description may be misleading or need clarification, but when the product is used as intended, it works well. The sound could be a little louder but thats my only semi-negative. Unless you're deaf, you'll hear it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's a piece of junk Totally useless. It won't detect a signal further than a few inches away in a wire even at the max setting. On the min setting it won't even detect a signal if you put the probe directly in contact with the transmitter. Even if it Did work, the test leads are so short they make it very difficult to clip to the bare wire end of the circuit you are trying to test because the alligator clip will not support the weight of the transmitter. What a waste of time trying to use this junk and then take it back for a refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works ok tracer button very hard to hold down. I used it many times in the past two years for networks. I bought it for the storage bag and fact it can do almost everything. Ok volume. Sometimes it seems to tone across other lines.The remote probe button us recessed and very hard to reach with your thumb. It hurts to hold it down even for a few seconds much less tracing a bunch of wires. . Nice idea to keep it running on it's own but it gets stored in it's own case. Needs an on and off button then make the tone button taller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! My husband and I had been having a electrical wiring issue for a couple of weeks, and after tearing into a almost all of the wiring in our house to find the problem... to no avail. I stumbled across this wire tracer & we went right out and bought it, not but 30 minutes later we found the problem with this little device!!! We were so pleased with our purchase best $40 spent! Worked perfectly through the floor and walls great tool to add to the collection!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hoping the bad reviews were wrong... nope I liked that it had built in adapters for coax, phone, ethernet and alligator clips, but you can't get a signal more than a few inches away from the unit. It would probably work great on other wires, but I wouldn't use it for house wiring. Taking it back to get something that works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally worth buying I bought this wire tracer to identity the wires in an old intercom system for a house I bought recently. In each room station there were four wires that all fed back to the master station. However, since the system was no longer operational, and nothing was labeled, I had no way of knowing which wires went to which room. Not to mention, the set of four wires from each room coming into the master panel were not grouped together. So I had 36 wires to identify for nine stations. I connected this tester to the first wire, in the first room, then used the probe at the master panel to start going through the wires, looking for which one I was connected to. The tone was clear and audible for each correct wire. A lot of other reviewers complain about the small button on the probe. I had no problem holding it down with my fat fingers, and I'm a 265lb man. Without this tester, I would not have been able to identify each of the wires. I managed to replace the entire system in one afternoon. This tester made all of that possible. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
