    I can't for the life of me work out how to get my probes into the "test ports". What am I missing?

    Take the black tip off, if you are using double pole voltage tester? or is it MFT?

    you need extra thin probes with far more than the recommended 2mm of metal tip.

    Neither my voltage tester nor MFT probes will fit. Obviously I can't possible take the finger guards off because then they won't be GS38 compliant and I'm not a rule breaker...

    I did actually think of this just yesterday, I'll give that a try. You'd think they'd make those ports big enough though wouldn't you.
