Provides good protection of probe tip. Black tip cover received could be screwed tightly to probe tip, however a tight fit could not be achieved with the red tip cover due to what appears to be a molding fault.
Bought to keep the probe ends sharp. Does the job perfectly. No problems with threads. Highly recommended out of all the attachments.
Does the job, absolutely nothing to complain about.
These covers are handy, and pretty much required if you want to keep your 8000 probes needle sharp. That said, I was pretty surprised to find that the leads themselves do not include these. They are inexpensive so no big deal, but it doesn't really clearly show that they don't come with the leads on the 8000 pages. I would like to see these featured prominently in the "Recommended Accessories" section, or just included from the get-go.
Only major complaint with these is that there is no threaded insert in them. They are 100% plastic and as far as I can tell, aren't even threaded for the probes. They work just fine, but I would rather pay a dollar or two more to get them with a threaded metal insert. Still a must-have for you 8000 series test probes.
Protects the tips and the case interior. Buy multiples as they can be lost easily.
