Questions & Answers

does this tool require a battery.i see no way of installing one.

Asked by: cableguy52
It does have a battery, but there is no way of replacing it - and from the manual, it seems that this is used so infrequently (or uses so little power when it is used) - that there is no need to replace it for a long, long time and they simply recommend purchasing a new tester when or if it does die.

how do i test which is the internet input

Asked by: chubby
This product will not test for that. It test the cable and cable connections, not what is transmitted on the cable.

Does this check signal ?

We install underground coax cable, will this check to make sure there is a signal
Asked by: cablegirl1
The tester will report on basic connectivity (not the strength of the signal). It will tell you if the line is "good", "open", or has a "short".

Disposable - Beware - Unit uses a non-rechargeable, non-replaceable battery Works fine until the battery runs out, then it's trash and you get to buy another one. (Actually when the battery runs out it's worse than trash, legally you can't throw it out, you have to dispose of it at a hazardous materials site.) The notice about the non-replaceable hazmat battery is in small print that I didn't see until I had opened the packaging. Next time I'll purchase the equivalent Southwire model (almost the exact same price) that works with replaceable batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a really valuable tool to trace coax cables.... This is a really valuable tool to trace coax cables. The only problem is the signal doesn't pass through all types of splitters. If you have an older splitter, you will need to find it and trace the wires from there.Other than that, it works as advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not colorblind friendly Device worked well once I had someone help train me on the red vs green light. Either needs two bulbs or greater contrast as most colorblind men are red/green. Do really like the multiple explorer options

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Color Toner! I use a bell toner and brown toner, this is the best by far. Just find a system so you don't loose the tips or colored ends and you'll do great

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coax Toner Works fine, not so ergonomic. It also seems a bit over priced. I was in need and had to have one at the time.
