Additional World Wide Patents Pending
1). Quick Fix Piezo Trigger
For the first time this new patented technology brings you an easy-to-use system for repairing faulty bulbs. The Quick Fix Trigger sends an electrical pulse through a defective light set, repairing problems associated with defective shunts.
2). Continuity Detector/Voltage Detector
The Continuity Detector/Voltage Detector is a second means to repair miniature light sets and features sound and light feedback. When the LightKeeper Pro's Continuity Detector/Voltage Detector scans a defective light set, it will indicate where a power interruption occurs, helping you find the area needing repair.
3). Bulb and Fuse Tester
The Bulb Tester, built into the top of the LightKeeper Pro, offers a third way to repair your light sets. You can individually test miniature light bulbs. Working bulbs inserted into the tester will illuminate immediately, indicating they are functioning properly.
4). Bulb Puller/Remover
The LightKeeper Pro's unique, built-in Bulb Puller makes it easy to remove those stubborn hard to get out bulbs. Two different bulb pullers are designed into the LightKeeper Pro: a Conventional Puller and a Hook and Pull remover.
5). Storage Organizer
The built in storage compartment helps you organize and store the extra bulbs and fuses that come with most light sets. It has slots for 2.5 volt bulbs, 3.5 volt bulbs and fuses. Each are labeled to accomodate the free extra bulbs and fuses included with the LightKeeper Pro.
6). LED Light
Light in the tip helps illuminate in dark working areas.
Quick Fix Trigger
Most miniature Holiday Light set failures occur when an individual bulb "shunt" fails to energize. These shunts are energized when a filament burns out. This causes a section of lights, usually 35 or 50, to go out instead of just one light bulb. This is because miniature light sets are wired in "series" and electricity must flow through each bulb, to the next, for them to light.The LightKeeper Pro Quick Fix Trigger sends a shaped, electrical pulse through the defective bulb, clearing the shunt. This allows it to operate properly. The current can then flow through the light set completing the circuit and illuminating the other bulbs.
The Patented LightKeeper Pro is the first product to FIX defects in a light set with the squeeze of a trigger.
Continuity Detector/Voltage Detector
Each wall plug has a "Hot", "Neutral" and "Ground" contact. Electricity is powered from the "Hot" contact and flows through the lights. It is similar to water flowing in a pipe. The LightKeeper Pro Continuity Detector/Voltage Detector uses an IC (Integrated Circuit) chip to find where the flow of electricity stops. It does this by detecting the minute electrical field emanating from the "Hot" wire even when a defect has caused the lights to go out. This electrical field when detected by the LightKeeper Pro, starts the beeping sound and continues as you scan the light string. When the electrical field stops emanating at the defect, the beeping stops. This shows where the problem is in miniature, series light strings. The detector finds the problem spot but the bulb or socket needs to be checked and appropriate repair action taken. The repair action may be securing a loose bulb, or testing a bulb to identify if it needs to be replaced.
