You're both right, from the touch and look, I think it's silicone. And if you click on "HI-RES PICTURE" on the UEI site, you'll get another picture for the ATL55 than shown as a thumbnail image in the overview. I've attached both pictures. Like Muttley Snickers said, I've definitely received the ATL57 leads.

And I can't find banana plug addons at the UEI website. The banana plugs would be very useful to me. By searching for "Screw-On" I can only find the AAC3 Alligator Clips (https://www.ueitest.com/products/accessories/aac3). I'm thinking about getting the Brymen BL21S2-T4SC Silicone Test Leads (https://www.welectron.com/Brymen-BL21S2-T4SC-Silicone-Test-Leads).

Anyway, I'm wondering if my test leads should've come with some "tip addons".

As mentioned earlier, I don't think UEI does the screw on banana plug adaptors which you have seen supplied with the Brymen leads, nothing is wrong with that either as various manufacturers do things in different ways and have differing products lines.

I think UEI need to tidy up some of those accessory pages as some of the images appear to be incorrect or misleading, particularly in regards to the test leads which makes it confusing for some. The images also give the impression that alligator clips are supplied with certain test lead sets but are instead a separate accessory.

The leads shown in the image posted above are definitely the ATL57 silicone series which are identifiable by the ridiculously long strain relief, the ATL55 series have a shorter strain relief.

Use this UEI page for better images and detail.
https://www.ueitest.com/search/node/leads
UEI uses the same picture for both on their website so you cannot belief what you see. When you open the data sheet you get a pdf where they use the exact same picture for both ATL55 and ATL57.

When you click on the link "HI-RES PICTURE" for the ATL55 you get a picture of completely other leads (???) and when you click on the "HI-RES PICTURE" link for the ATL57 you get a low res picture of the leads from the PDF.

This is not correct, if you follow the link I provided shown in the first image below it offers a 360° view of the ATL57 lead set which clearly shows the extended strain relief as can be seen in the third image, the web page that M4x linked does not offer up the 360° view option which aids to hinder proper identification as can be seen in the second image, my work here is done.   ::) :P

So you can see that UEI made the mistake and placed wrong pictures and 360° views. At the ATL57 e.g. they write "CATIV Test Leads (Silicone)". The leads on the picture are red and/black. When you open the 360° view of the ATL57 you see red/grey test leads with the text "CATII 1000V" on it. In the "data sheet" for both ATL55 and 57 they take the exact same picture (what I think is the ATL57).

At the ATL55 look on the HIGH-RES PICTURE what is totally different again. And at the ATL55 there is no 360° view. I am pretty sure we would find a fourth variant of leads there  ;D

So we both are correct and UEI is the culprit  8) I am starting to see why the firmware of the 121GW is a little "confused" so seemes the company to be.  ;D ;D ;D

The links I checked are:

Can anyone point me in the direction of a supplier for replacement fuses at reasonable price and preferably in Australia, failing that a UK supplier? I am after the 400mA but I may as well pick up both while I'm at it :-+
