Got one of these lying around?

I saw this on a post on the iATN website and really liked it! Coupled with any probe from Jumperkits, this makes a great tool to have in your box!

Just crimp a couple of male spade terminals onto the bulb leads, and you can connect any probe found in a Jumperkit!

Here’s the ling to the post on iATN.

Square Micro 64 probes are here!

Today we start offering the square Micro 64 probes that you have been looking for!

These are Tyco terminal part numbers 963716-1 (male) and 963715-1 (female). The male pin measures .64mm.

Drag Test – Another use for Jumperkits

Intermittent or erratic operation of electrical components can often be caused by poor electrical connections. Poor connections can be caused by;

  • Corroded connector terminals

  • Pins or sockets  that are pushed back into the connector body

  • Poorly mated connector terminals

  • Loose pins

  • Worn out pins or sockets

Corroded terminals can be easily identified by disconnecting the connector bodies and carefully examining the pins and sockets for any corrosion. Any terminals that show signs of  corrosion should be replaced.

Corroded electrical terminals

Pushed back pins or sockets can also be found through visual inspection and also require replacement. Sometimes the cause of the loose terminal may be a worn out body, rather than the terminal itself. If this is the case, replace the connector body and any required terminals.

If nothing is visibly wrong, poorly mated, loose, or worn out terminals can be discovered by performing a “drag test” using the correct wire from our Jumperkits.

Select the correct mating terminal from the Jumperkit and manually insert it into the terminal in the connector. As you slide the terminal in and out, it should fit securely and you should feel a significant amount of “drag”. If not, the terminal should be replaced.

Cleaner PayPal integration

We've recently made some changes to the site to provide a better integration experience when paying with PayPal! We were seeing a lot of problems when an address entered on Jumperkits did not pass the validation process used by PayPal.

Now you be able to modify the addresses on the PayPal site instead of the order just being totally rejected by PayPal.

As part of this improvement, and to be better able to service our customers, you now have to register on the site before you can check out. There is no more "guest" checkout allowed.

Were sorry for this initial inconvenience, but registering provides us a way to better assist you, and there are also benefits for you too. As a registered user, you can see your past orders, you can save a cart for checkout later and you can re-order from your history!

Thanks for your continued business!

 

Adding products to our site

For a while now we've been wanting to offer some other complimentary items for sale on our site. It's taken some time to work out the details, but we're almost there!

Soon you will see additional products that we think go along well with our Jumperkits. Things like terminal release tools and fusible DMM leads.

As we add these products, we hope that you will find our pricing competitive and enjoy the "one stop" shopping that we hope to provide.

Stay tuned for more! Sign up for our newsletter by registering on the site. Well be sending out the new product announcements soon.

New heavy duty zippered pouch!

We've added a new optional pouch to store your Jumperkits. It's a zippered, heavy duty nylon pouch that will hold up much better than the plastic zip lock bag the kits are currently packed in. Sometimes the pins poke thru the plastic bag, and once it’s ripped, the wires start to fall out!

This rugged nylon bag that will hold up well even when tossed into your tool box! This great bag will help protect the Jumperkit wires from loss or damage.

Use with or without the original plastic Ziploc bag.

Dimensions: 5" x 8"

Comfortably holds 3 or 4 kits, or use the additional room in the pouch for other test leads / tools you may want to store together with the Jumperkit.

You can now order these with your kits here: Zippered Pouch
