Description: These needle tipped multimeter probes are great for attaching to multimeters, power supplies, oscilloscopes, function generators, etc. Not only can these make a good replacement for any multimeter probes you have now that are damaged or worn, but thanks to the needle tip, these probes are great for testing your SMD components! Each pair of cables come in standard red/black colors with caps to protect the needle tip leads.

Dimensions: 36" Long

Customer Comments

  • breadboardable - very sharp fine needle points for insulation piercing very low impedance- awesome buy for the money - would not use for high volt or amp circuits because of the small probe size - great for digital electronics

  • On a side note, the sleeves on these probes make them hard to use with our SFE digital multimeters(TOL-09141) but work with our other multimeter(TOL-10892) and bench top power supplies flawlessly. I advise cutting off about ¼" if you want them to work with TOL-09141.

  • Cool – will these fit into a breadboard?

Specs that should have been included in the description

They have a resistance of 0.3 Ohms, which is pretty good for this price point. They are labelled CAT II 1000V 10A.

Very handy!

I previously made my own with pin jacks and sewing needles. But these, inexpensive with the protective caps, are very good.

This Item is sucks

It broke me when I used it very gently …

I tipped them 10 degrees to the horizontal, and with a little pressure they broke :((

Hi, So sorry to hear this. That’s not normal for these to be that fragile. Please contact us at https://www.sparkfun.com/returns and we’ll be happy to help you with this issue. Thanks


Really handy for small terminal measurements (and SMD’s too!)

Very Handy

These probes replaced a set I had owned for years and were very worn out. They are made well. They are quality probes and appear to as able to give years of service. Pleased with my purchase.

Everything I hoped for

Points are long, slender and sharp, works great when checking smt mounted components or ic’s. Pokes into 18 gauge wiring easily without requiring lots of force (which is how I injured myself using a different product)… Couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
