Questions & Answers

Will it work through drywall?

Will it trace a 110v AC lead through drywall? I have a switch which is powered from the same 15A breaker as other lights, but I am unable to determine what the switch controls.
Asked by: Springbok
Most of the adjustable sensitivity detectors will work through dry wall to detect and trace wiring. Just turn up the sensitivity. Playing with sensitivity you can dial it in to just a few inches to locate and trace wiring on a live circuit inside a wall.

Do you have to keep holding down a button or switch to test the wires, or will it stay on without holding something?

Asked by: John
No. Place it on one side of a desk lamp wire and then the other and slowly adjust the sensivity control from low to high until it beeps and flashes. Thats how you locate the hot wire. Place the tip in each slot of a wall outlet and adjust the sensivity control and it will find the hot wire.

12-600 VAC Adjustable Circuit Alert Non-Contact Voltage Tester is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the One I've tried both the Milwaukee, and Klein Tools Voltage Testers and returned both because they were not sensitive enough to pick up emf unless you were touching the wire. The GB Tester is adjustable and works great - close or far if there is emf you will detect it. This is my 2nd GB Tester - one for work, one for home. My 1st GB Tester is over 5 Years old and still works great. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12-600 VAC Adjustable Circuit Alert Non-Contact Voltage Tester This works excellent and I love the sensitivity wheel switch. Was able to find the wiring problem with my outdoor lighting which is 12 VAC. Thanks for an excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from voltage tester I love this tester! You can control the sensitivity and most other testers do not allow you to do this.

This one has a variable control that can adjust the sensitivity to match the task. You do have to take the time to read the directions on adjusting but it really does makes the tool much more valuable. I use this tester in combination with the Gardner Bender Model # GET-3100 Voltage Tester, which is perfect for all my testing needs to work safely. That is the main reason I gave it 5 stars.

But the instructions were seriously deficient. Fortunately, I found an online video that gave a good explanation of how to use the device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described. Battery strength indicator comes on at start up. This product is very simple and accurate to use. You will like it.

I have never owned one of these before. I have always figured out how the previous owners wired things, but his house has had too many Cooks. Sometimes the Black is Hot. Sometimes the White is Hot. Most times the wires have no color. When installing $50 LED Dimmers, you need to be sure ... I love this! No more guessing or trial by error. The dial is so sensitive, it can pick up voltage from a foot away (is the outlet still On?). Turn sensitivity up, and can tell the difference between two wires a half inch apart (which is Hot?).
