Ampel Probe with Tactical Holster

The Ampel Probe acts as an extension of your own hand to prevent needle sticks, razor or knife cuts while searching homes, individuals, prison cells, vehicles or other hidden or hard to reach places. The Probe also maintains evidence integrity by preventing cross-contamination, while used in conjunction with latex tip covers.

The Ampel Probe is made of highly sensitive thermoplastic which provides tactile feedback to detect objects regardless of size. The Probe's precision interlocking teeth, grip objects securely and there is a textured, spring-loaded handle for safe, secure handling. Heat tolerance is up to 325°F. The Probe’s high glass content means it does not conduct electricity.

The Probe is supplied with a tactical holster made of ballistic nylon. This allows the Probe to be easily stored and carried. You can clip it on your belt, hang it on a visor, or place it in a glove compartment or duty bag, for quick, easy accessibility. It's so easy to use and carry there’s never an excuse to be without it.

The Probe provides a 12" barrier between you and potential harm. It is sensitive to vibration and is good for turning out pockets, searching vehicles and it can be used instead of a hand search, to detect hidden articles.
