do these exist, or have i imagined it?

i'm thinking of something i could plug into my mft, and then screw into a BC or ES fitting and then clip on the earth lead so i could do a ZS test quickly without removing the light fitting.

reason i ask is i had to test a house recently with several fancy looking metal lights which had to be removed, causing damage to the decor and it took bloody ages to get them back up. if i had been able to just screw an adapter in it would have taken 1 minute per light instead of 3 hours!

As Lenny as linked too, I have them and they are brilliant not just for fancy lights but also standard pendants when you need 3 hands sometimes.

just have to bear in mind that with standard pendants etc., you still have to access inside the rose for the E terminal.

These are brilliant bits of kit, got a set from ebay last year and they've had a lot of use. Saves trying to clip on or probe whilst trying to get onto a good earth whilst balancing on the steps on the top of the stairwell... Just a case of unscrewing the rose cover to get to the earth, great when there's 30 years worth of paint holding it in place.

well if you cant get the cover off the rose.....then just get your earth prod on the screw holding the switch front on..(if it will reach)....its an exposed-conductive-part isn`t it....

yeah but it defeats the purpose of testing at the furthest point, why not just do your Zs tests at the DB !

always manage to get rose covers off with a bit of gentle persuasion with hammer. only trouble with sparks1973's post is you would not be able to tell id the cpc actually went to the fitting.

Saves me replying... :lol:
 
Kewtechs won't work with megger 1700 series leads tho (or at least mine don't go deep enough). Luckily, I have an RS set which fit perfectly.
