    Just make sure it doesn't have that crappy foam rubber looking crap inside the jaws on the sensor.

    I bought a Cooper Clamp on probe attachment for their SH line temp meters about a year and a half ago. It was big and red and was an absolute piece of junk. It had some sort of foam rubber looking crap in the sensing area inside the jaws that crapped out in a few months and caused it to give erroneous readings before it died altogether.

    I bought one of those 90 dollar lessons, too.

    First freezer suction line, the stupid little pieces of foil tape over that cheap foam rubber came off. By the fifth suction line, I didn't need to worry about the foam anymore.

    I always liked Cooper thermometers. Until that little gem.

    Fluke clamps ONLY now.

    For larger lines, I use a regular K probe and a roll of double-sided Velcro. Works much nicer, I think.
