Checking shorepower connections for proper wiring can be time-consuming, especially when working in dimly-lit or difficult-to-access locations. An innovative UL- and CL-listed Twist-Lock Circuit Tester from Hubbell Marine speeds this process by using simple LED visual codes to indicate electrical circuit conditions.

The patented, compact design of the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester closely resembles a standard Hubbell Twist-Lock Plug. Once inserted into a 30A/125V receptacle, its LED back panel immediately displays whether the circuit is complete and properly wired.

A sturdy plastic card provided with the tester helps quickly identify seven connection conditions: correct or reverse polarity; open hot, ground or neutral; reversed hot and ground; and hot on neutral. This unique NEMA configuration of LED signals makes it easy to quickly diagnose mis-wiring situations, even when working in dark, difficult-to-reach spaces.

With its durable Insulgrip nylon housing, the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester provides boat owners, marina operators and electricians with a comfortable and secure grip. A built-in carabiner-style clip allows easy securing to a work belt.
