The plastic sleeves on the test probes can be removed if you need to test inside an AC outlet for correct polarity, but I prefer to use the plug in fault tester when confirming correct wiring of AC outlets. My only complaint about the plug in tester is that the lights are all very similar in color. I prefer my old tester with Green, Yellow, & Red lights which I find easier and faster to determine if a fault if present. However there is a guide on the top of the Klein tester that shows if a fault is present and also that the plug is wired correctly, but again It is difficult to see the fault description in dark locations. Another issue with the multi-function tester is there is no clear indication you are testing DC or AC voltage because the LCD readout on the screen looks the same when testing both voltages. DC test you turn the knob to the left and AC to the right. To solve this confusion for myself, I added P-touch labels to clearly identify AC or DC on the meter. There is an optional storage case for this Tester, but is about 1/3 the cost of the Multi-tester. Other than these minor issues, I am very pleased with this tester and the price is hard to beat.
