Is it just me, or does it seem like Leviton could have made that tester so it could read all three prongs at the same time, with three different readouts: 1) hot prong tension resistance 2) neutral prong tension resistance and 3) ground prong tension resistance, just pressing the button for 1), 2) and then 3)?
Seems like 99.999% of the cost is in the packaging, handling, stocking and promoting, and not the tension transducer. Put three transducers in there, make each one "read" simultaneously, then display with a click, click, click of the button.
At most, for maybe 50 cents more, you could have that. Then it'd be WORTH IT. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif) Okay, still not worth it.
I just plug my tester in and can tell when the receptacle is worn out. Call for replacing all receptacles pretty often. If I find several receptacles with "loose" or "bad" contacts, I just recommend replacing all of them. After all, they are probably all original and are all in need of replacing for safety.
Unless some stupid electrician wants to "certify" them as being "safe". Sorry, from another thread. Just can't get over an electrician sticking their neck out that far for, what, a $50 service call?
