SnufferStick High Voltage Discharge Stick

About This Item

Safely discharge high voltage when working on amps
Clip the SnufferStick to the chassis for ground, and then hold the tip to your filter caps to discharge dangerous high voltage present when you turn off your amp.

Included are two 56K, 2-watt resistors in series with the nose probe and ground wire (112K total). The SnufferStick will safely discharge the high voltage supply within three to five seconds. We highly recommend using a meter to measure the voltage while you have the discharge stick in place. Only remove the stick when the voltage is completely drained.

Don't work on an amp without a discharge stick!

Amp builder's necessity

By

Verified Buyer


I finally got tired of breaking my home-made snuffer; I was depending on the leads of a wirewound resistor and they kept breaking. So...
Finally bit the bullet and bought a ready made snuffer. The whole assembly looks solid and, after using it repeatedly, it works so much better than my home-built.My only beef is the price but saving my sorry body from a possibly lethal shock should not be dependent on a particular price point.
Recommend!

Great Product and Safe to Use

I need to discharge the caps on my amps when I'm working on them and this tool works perfectly. I could have tried making something but I wanted a well insulated safe tool that was easy to use and the Snuffer Stick completely met my expectations. The caps discharge quickly and the tool is well designed. Buy one and be safe!

Great tool to have!

I used this to discharge the caps on my 1973 Vibro Champ and it made the task a breeze. If you're doing any kind of work, efficiency is important, and this SnufferStick helps do that and makes amp work more fun to do.

Works well

I was going to build one of these, but after sourcing the parts, it was more cost effective to purchase this from Stewmac. Works perfectly to drain the high voltage caps. You NEED one of these if you are going to do maintenance on your own amp.

Basic Electronic Survival Tool

Exactly as advertised. 112 Kilo Ohm of protection. Quickly and safely discharges amplifier capacitors before your fingers do. And, trust me . . . capacitors are more than happy to dump their load of deadly high voltage into a human body.

Poor quality--arrived with loose tip

By

Verified Buyer


The probe tip threads into the non conducting body and the wire travels down this body and out the bottom to the clip, that is meant to ground the tool.
The threaded probe tip was loose in the body and would not screw back in; it is all stripped out.
I'll epoxy it back in, its not worth sending back
Better design needed.
It seems way to easy for this to happen.
