He manufactured commutator dresser stones with the belief that every product should be worth more than the price paid for it. Service, he said, was part of the product. That idea has been the core IDEAL business principle for over 90 years. Today, the many loyal distributors and customers that make IDEAL successful are a testament to Becker's original philosophy.

I'm a licensed professional electrician and have purchased many of these over the years and I continue to do so because of it compact size, overall durability and light pattern is easy to recognize and the built in GFCI testing. If your an electrician you need the GFCI test feature and it works perfectly.

I have one con about this tester other than it is way over priced, when used as a professional tool, where you use it every day and many times a day, over the period of 2 to 3 years the internal connections to the blades get loose and then the lights do not always reflect the correct wiring condition. What I mean by that is when you plug it into a live and properly wired receptacle outlet the 2 outer light will light up but after it starts to wear out you may plug it in and it may show a open ground or a open neutral wire but if you wiggle the tester it will show up as working so you can't 100% be confident that there isn't a problem with a connection to the outlet which would cause the same lights to be out. I've had a few of these testers that the blades would push back into the tester and not make contact with the outlet.

As much as Ideal charges for this otherwise fantastic tester they should be able to solve this problem. I have to replace mine every 2 to 3 years. I went to a trade show and a rep for GB gave me a free tester to try and it's OK but this Ideal tester is the best. Ideal please find a way to add more support inside the tester to make it last longer so I don't have to replace it that often.

Again, I am not a home owner that may have gotten one bum tester but rather I have purchased 10 to 12 of these over the last 20+ years so I speak from long term experience. If you buy one for occasional home use it will last you a lifetime.
