Questions & Answers

will this test for a tv signal

will this test for a tv signal
Asked by: dave
This device will not test for a TV signal. It is used for mapping coaxial cable such as when installing multiple coaxial lines in a home or business for television or CCTV applications. Here is a link to the manufacturer’s website for this item: https://www.kleintools.com/catalog/cable-testers-accessories/coax-explorer-2-tester I’ve also included a link to the manufacturer’s video on YouTube. I hope this helps!

Coax Explorer 2 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.

This product allowed me to sort out the many cables the previous owner had installed in the house with no identification of where they came from. The antenna was in the attic and cables went to the basement and then were routed to various rooms, but no way of knowing where they came from or went. The tool allowed me to trace which was the antenna cable then then where the room cables were. Then I could hook everything up to work.

I have a nest of coax wires in my new home and am finally ready to wire a cable modem. The issue is, especially for cable modems, you should not split the signal too many times or there won’t be enough signal strength for full internet bandwidth. Using this Coax Explorer, I was able to put the red coax “cap” on the wall plate end where I wanted to installl my modem, then use the tool in my downstairs wiring closet to identify exactly which wire went there. The only downside is that every wire you test must have a coax cable end on it - my electrician left me with just raw wire ends. HD has other tools to easily strip & apply coax connectors, so I got that done quickly enough. Another version of this tool comes with 4 different identifier ends (red in this one, add green, black and blue). For me, one is enough and keeps the price reasonable. If I did it all day, I am sure that 4 identifier ends would save 3 more trips up and down the stairs when identifying wires. Great value for the functionality, and of course, it also tests the wire for open or short conditions.

The Klein Tools Coax Explorer 2 tool is another high-quality tool from Klein. The tool is easy to use and allows the user or technician to quickly map coaxial cables for quick installation. The device comes with two AA batteries, so it's ready to work immediately. It also comes with one test remote (red), but additional remotes are available for purchase separately. This tool is probably not one for the average home user, but is more well-suited to commercial use by professional installers. While I worked with and tested the tool with only one test remote, the device would find its greatest use when used with multiple coaxial cables, such as with the installation of a security system or with a video display system with multiple displays arranged throughout a building. This is a quality tool, however, and is what I expect from Klein.

A great tool for tracing coax cables where there are a lot of different runs that go through splitters. Just glade it has changeable batteries my last one didn't have that option it worked but I like this much better. A great tool that anyone can use and being made by Klein will last, going to get the 4 pack of pick-ups so I can do more then one cable at a time.

I had a bundle of 20+ unconnected coax cables to sort through just to connect two bedroom cable outlets, Took about 10 minutes with this handy gadget. Should have bought one years ago.
