A Line Tester is an electrical tool used primarily by electricians to test or indicate the presence of electrical current in a line. It is easier to use and cheaper than other measuring devices like multi-meters. Apart from that, it can also be used as a screwdriver to tighten the masonry screws.
When the metal tip of the tester comes in contact with a live circuit or line, a small light placed inside the handle of the tool starts glowing. As you can guess, line testers are practically life-saving devices and should always be used before touching any piece of wiring or metal part in a circuit.
No electrician can go about his day without a reliable line tester in his toolkit. Press Fit has been the go-to line tester brand for lakhs of electricians in India and abroad for more than 2 decades! Under the child brand of Press Teak, we offer a range of robust and reliable line testers that are indispensable for electricians, households, and offices.
The main purpose of the line tester is to detect the presence of electricity in the circuit line. If the metal tip of the line tester comes in contact with a live cable, the neon lamp gets illuminated at the end of the tester. It acts as a quick signal to the user about the presence of electricity.
Line Testers can also be used to tighten or loosen the screws while making connections across various electrical devices such as switches, sockets, holders, etc. They are very handy for handling metal screws especially thanks to the magnetic tip.
