You want a multimeter for stuff like that. Be sure the light socket is rated for the bulbs your using, thats always a good thing to check first because most of the time if it works it works. As you stated you are a 'noob' please be sure to cut the breakers to the area first. If you are solo take a plug in radio and plug it in where you want to work, when the music stops you know you killed the right breaker.

To clarify - this can be used to check the wiring of non-GFCI outlets (to see how it's wired, and whether it is wired correctly), as well as to check whether GFCI is working.

I'm a bit disappointed, I bought this a few weeks ago and the lighting is confusing. Sometimes you can't tell which lights are on and off

Useful if you do any electrical work around the house, or simply want to check if the outlets are correctly wired, and GFCI is working.

It's also useful to know whether 2 or 3 wires are connected, and if so which ones. A situation you sometimes run into.

My stereo receiver in the garage shorted out and was acting funky. I used this tester and it showed an outel problem. The neutral and hot were on the wrong terminals. Not a big deal for most electrical items, but receivers and tv's can be sensitive to this. Long story short..... this item showed my problem, I have since used it to test every other outlet to make sure. Nice little gadget!

Stellar little tool. We used it at our new home and identified which outlets to avoid.
It resets the GFCI outlet when plugged it, will need to reclick the button for it.
Easily pulled out of the outlet too w the side grip ribbing. Plus, can be used upside down, the guide is on both sides.

I also reccomend circuit finding tool. The one I got has the gfci tester built in as well as the circuit finder (I. E. Find out what circuit the outlet is on). Both are great tools to have around! Here is a link to the one I have https://www.amazon.com/Extech-CB1...90&sr=8-12

This is a necessity for any homeowner (I've had mine even from when I was renting). Also handy for checking if an outlet is on a switch instead of walking around with a lamp or something.

Dumb question does it check if power is still on .

Or let's say I have a bad light outlet that pops the light bulb will this work ?


Yes I'm a noob at electrical things but none the less curious and quick learner ..

Have plans on changing my outlets in my room + I got a short or bad wiring in closet that blows light bulbs I wanna fix . Thanks in advance

It will definitely do that. However never trust your wiring. Get a non contact voltage tester to test each wire. Sometimes an outlet can show as not live but there will be a hot wire. Always be under the assumption the previous homeowner screed it up :l

I picked up a Klein type a month ago for a few bucks more otherwise I'd be in for one. These are def handy. I did convince by bro to order this one, though, so thanks OP!
