    Default Sure-Loc

    Anyone ever used/heard about the Sure-Loc pipe and cable locator?

    I believe they are manufactured by Reynold's?

    Just curious.

    Yep, I have and I've used it. Heath Industries makes it.

    It's a pretty good piece of equipment (at least in my opinion) offset it with a pipehorn and shonstedt and it's a good set.

    I always had a problem with the handle/neck of the reciever though. Cracks and breaks happened easily.

    How's the transmitter for induction? And does it have a 50/60 worth a damn?

    The transmitter is ok for induction but it has it's limitations just like everything else on the market. Steel very good, Cast not so good (hence the pipehorn). 50/60 is also ok but I hardly ever used it for what I was doing with it (gas and primary electric).

    Thank You.

    There is the potential of my using it for auditing/training in the near future. Wanted to be sure I wasn't going to be chewing the insides of my cheeks everytime I used it.

    Much appreciated.

    Well it's one of those things with equipment. I think if you have been doing this job for a minute you have a favorite and you have some you absolutely hate. The sure-loc is a middle of the road piece for me (well a little more above middle of the road). I would use it again if given the chance let's put it that way.

    I had a friend that had been locating for about 15 years that swore by it. I really haven't had a chance to use one myself.

    I have used a Sure lock for the last 6 years. I did not like it at first (I primarily used a Metrotech and a pipe horn for 14 years) but I have gotten to the point now that I use it on every project. The passive mode is weak but induction and direct connect work great.
