I think this is somewhat of a "trade secret".
Being a software engineer for embedded devices myself, I often find myself using oscilloscopes and multimeters. I have always wondered about my Fluke 87-V and all flukes before that.
They have these slots in the back that perfectly fit your test probes/leads, protecting their points. However: I have -never- been able to find a way to properly wrap/fold the leads around the multimeter, and still be able to use the slots nicely.
Is there some secret to this, or should I just disconnect my leads after use?
