I saw this on "Holmes on Homes", a Canadian tv series on home repair and remodeling.

I paid around $15 a Home Depot and it is great.
The tip is rectangular so it fits right into a wall plug or you just touch it to any rubber coated live wire and the light blinks Red and also has a loud beeping. No worries about getting a shock.

It flashes RED and beeps when you plug it into the HOT slot of a wall plug to show you which is hOT and which is NEUTRAL. Lowes has them too.

Hope this helps someone.

OK, where did I screw up on the URL?

Yeah, that's it. I never saw it before, but it works great.
Somehow I screwed up the link to the site. Thanks.

We could ues a "Cool Tools" section on this web site to keep us guys up on all the Guy Tools.
