HD Electric Company VW-20H V-Watch Personal Voltage Detector (with C-10 Carrying Case Lanyard)

Worn on the outside of your clothing at mid-torso, the V-Watch® provides that extra level of safety by detecting and alerting you to the presence of electrical fields or energized electrical equipment. In emergencies, you and your crews can move safely to quickly restore power to your customers. The V-Watch is available in both a standard model and a pro model with a mute feature. Each comes in a tough nylon carrying case lanyard that is worn around the neck during use. 

The C-10 Carrying Case Lanyard is made with a black shielded material.
