Product Description

The ideal compromise between weight and price. If the depth of burial is about 1m on average, the probe 200 has a sufficient length. The different-coloured segments made from aluminium indicate the depth. The "conic" tubes and the practical express screw fastener allow a fast assemblage of the probe. The larger head of the probe drills a bore channel being larger than the diameter of the probe so that the probe can be pulled out easily and doesn't freeze.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE: You can quickly assemble the probe with just one pull, even in the most stressful situations.Because in an emergency, every second counts

HOW TO FOLD: Simply release the probe tensioning system with your thumb and pull the sections apart

I must say that I have never used it in real situation.
