Our Take on the Klein Circuit Breaker Finder
The Klein Circuit Breaker Finder is perfect for someone who needs to label their panel or just needs to check paneling regularly, and it is great for electricians or anyone interested in taking more control of their home upkeep. To find a signal, the transmitter plugs into an outlet and draws spikes of current off a line, helping you find an active circuit quickly. As stated previously, the flashing arrow indicator and tone let you know when you’ve found the right circuit of any outlet.
Some of the many other benefits from this tool include an auto power off feature that helps save battery life and the 9V battery it comes with, so you don’t have to worry about charging prior to use. Like other Klein tools, this circuit breaker finder also has an accessory kit available separately and includes a light socket and alligator clip adapters. While this product is for indoor use only, that is largely all you would need it for if you are just a homeowner and even if you are an electrician.
Even if you’re unfamiliar with circuit breaker finders, this one is easy to use once you’ve read through the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Simply plug the included test plug into the outlet on the circuit you want to trace. Then, go to your panel, click on the tester, and run the finder slowly down the panel face while it beeps—this helps it learn the circuits. Scan the panel again, touching the tip of the unit on each breaker until it chimes. Once you hear the loud tone and see the green indicator, you’ve found your active circuit. From here, you can label each circuit without any issue.
