A multimeter is a useful tool in many circumstances, but just what are you supposed to do with the test leads when you’re done using it? If you’re lucky your meter has a compartment for storing leads — otherwise you could bundle them nicely with a Velcro tie or just wrap them around the meter a few times. Maybe a better option would be to pick up a set of Kastar’s 15′ retractable leads.
