This seems like a silly question, but my research is failing to yield results...
I ordered some new probes for my multimeter because I needed things like alligator clip leads and the little wire clips instead of just the pointy spikes.
Problem is they don't fit. Well, ok, they do "fit" (I can insert the plug in the hole) but the contacts don't touch, rendering them useless. Looking at other sets of probes, they all seem to have this sheathed attachment, and none have the simple banana plug that the default probes came with.
- Is this multimeter just too low end to fit standard probes?
- Are there multiple multimeter probe plug standards?
- What is this plug called so I know what to search for? (ones a "banana" plug, right? What's the other?)
- Are there adapters I can buy?
