Even some simple home repairs are performed better and safer when you are able to check for AC/DC voltage levels. It's always better to play it safe and carry a Craftsman Digital Multimeter in your bag of tools.
A Craftsman Digital Multimeter measures AC/DC volts, current and resistance. It also measures diode and continuity and has 20 range seven-function abilities, which gives you better accuracy.

I can't begin to tell you how many times I needed to test a circuit in the basement I am remodeling just to try and figure out what the homeowner did! It got to the point where I needed to move from one branch to another quickly and my plug in unit was just too slow and didn't always help me find the power source I was seeking.
I went to Sears and poked around and ound this set. It was cheap ($15 on sale regular price is $25) and, while I didn't neccesarily need the multi-meter I couldn't pass on the deal!
The voltage detector is a simple device but it has saved me on a couple of occassions already in finding a power source I thought I had cut off before opening it up to fix it! The flashing light and loud beeping alert you quick before finding out the old fashioned way that you missed a breaker, a plus when it's a 220 VAC circuit!
The multi-meter is pretty basic although it does have a battery scale for 9v and 1.5v batteries so even the better half or kids can tell if a battery is worth keeping or recycling.
For the money you get a good dependable set of tools than can quite possibly save your life!
I purchased this today because my more expensive meter wont give the buzzing sound when detecting continuity, numbers read correctly but no beeping sound. So I went out and got this and with out even touching the leads the beep goes on and as I very gently even change the pressure by which I am holding the multimeter in my had the beep changes tone. That is a bad sign of the internals quality. On top of all that the unit feels light and cheap, I know that is not indicative of all things feeling that way, but in this case it should serve as a sign. I was going to take it back and replace it but after reading the other posts here, it turns out a lot of the units that are purchased have faulty continuity test. Now, I'm just gonna get my money back. I see some people paid as little as 10 dollars for this thing, here in California it was a whopping 25 dollars but I purchased it as it was on sale for 20. But anyways, taking it back tomorrow.

We just purchased a home in which the previous owner did much of his own wiring and didn't label the fuse box The multimeter and the AC voltage detector have been VERY handy. The voltage detector only needs AAA batteries. Good deal for the price.

I`ve bought a couple of multi meters from Sears in the past and they still function but your sale prices plus reward points makes it so reasonable to purchase another multi meter it would be a big mistake not to purchase another as a back up.

This is a pretty good kit, although the voltage detector does act up sometimes and it will beep in my tool belt when it is no where near a power source. Overall a good kit and I would recommend it.
I've not had the chance to completely explore all the functions yet. I basically needed a voltage tester for basic current flow and volts there in. But that being said I've owned a few of these style tools in the past . This is every bit as good or better than any and all of them. This isn't necessarily for very tight tolerance measuring but it does seem to be very accurate. Again I've only measure voltage in 12 v dc (car alternator) and it measured out to then100'ths and the hundredth decimal was fluctuating , meaning the real time reading IMO was very accurate . Easy to use and figure out (same as any I've ever used) seems as durable or more so than any I've used. And has the craftsman name backing it. You get what you pay for and more as per usual with craftsman.
