Recall Notice: IDEAL is voluntarily recalling solenoid test leads manufactured in August 2012

What is Being Recalled? Test leads manufactured in August 2012 and either (i) used on IDEAL solenoid tester model numbers 61-065, 61-067, 61-076, and 61-080, or (ii) test leads sold separately as model nos. 61-070 and 61-072 (the “Recalled Test Leads”)

Why is There a Recall? The base of the plug on the test leads may not have enough rubber insulating material. This poses a risk of electrical shock and may cause serious personal injury or death.

What Should I Do? Look for the 0812 date code on IDEAL test leads purchased since August 2012:


Remedy:Immediately send the Recalled Test Leads back to IDEAL Industries, Inc. at:

    IDEAL Tester Replacement
