Well-made equipment that works well. Disappointed that the resistance meter does not have a continuity buzzer. The 'holster' is the sturdy blue surround. Although it is a bit stiff to remove, you can replace the meter upside down to protect its face. Simple probes included - no clamps or clips - but I can use those from my old meter.
Reliability unknown, but had to enter something!

I bought this mainly to get a multimeter and the socket tester. Tried this on my existing circuits and it seemed to work fine - showing two green lights.
After cutting into a ring main and installing the extension I reconnected everything very carefully (because I'm not a sparky) and then turn on the electricity.
I plugged in the socket tester and got one green LED - which shows no earth! Panicking I turned everything off, rechecked every connection, turned it back on - still no earth.
I chickened out then and reconnected the ring main, excluding my new extension - STILL no earth.
Tried the tester in lots of other sockets including other ring mains - still no earth.
Then I got suspicious - I had one light but no buzzer - a combination which shouldn't happen. So I took this round my S-I-L's house just to double-check and still the same thing.
It seems the middle LED has failed after just a few tests and I should have been seeing TWO green lights, indicating everything was OK on all of my circuits. So I've just wasted over two hours, and some anxious moments, for nothing, and now I have to take it back to Screwfix.
Not a happy bunny this evening.
On a positive note the AC mains tester is brilliant - just hold it near a cable and it will tell you if it is live or not. Invaluable if you're turning the juice on and off all the time.
