Coax Cable Continuity Tester
Don’t spend hours trying to figure out which coax cable goes to which jack. Save time during wiring projects with this pocket-sized Pocket Toner continuity tester. After completing the pre-wiring stage of an installation, you could be faced with dozens of coax cables. While it is easy to group the different cables, you still have to figure out which cable goes to which jack or location. The Pocket Toner can help you solve this problem in minutes.

Simply plug the sender into a wall jack in a room. Back at the location where all the cables come together, connect one cable at a time to the speaker until a tone is heard, and you’ve found your cable.

The Coax Cable Continuity Tester is an easy to use tool for testing coax cable. With it you can check DC shorts, splitters and self-grounding devices in coax cable. An audible tone sounds when the line-carrying signal is detected. Read more

Gift for Her: A Wind Chime with a Solar-Powered LED Light

December 10, 2011 2 comments

Sun-Mate Corp 230 Solar Wind Chime with Bright LED Illumination
Efficient solar panels charge the batteries by day, so the sensor can automatically turn on the LED’s at dusk. The LED light inside the globe creates a beautiful bright illumination. Long chime tubes create magical sounds from the wind. This wind chime has an elegant finish over sturdy construction. Environmentally friendly and glows for up to 8 hours nightly. Includes a metal “S” hook and chain for easy hanging, and best of all there is no wiring needed!

During the day, the solar panels will convert sunlight into electricity and recharge the included rechargeable battery. In the evening, the Solar Powered Lamp will turn on automatically. Provides up to eight hours of light when batteries are fully charged (the hours of light per charge depends on your geographical location, weather conditions and seasonal lighting availability).

Although the Ni-Cd rechargeable battery included with every unit is designed to provide years of reliable use, most rechargeable batteries do begin to deplete after cold winters. When this happens, the battery can be easily replaced with newer models available anywhere batteries are sold. It is suggested Ni-Cd batteries are replaced once every 12 months to ensure constant performance. Read more
