Do most probes have the spring loaded tips?

(1/1)

Stonent:
I've seen some probes for sale on Ebay where they show the end removed and there is the spring loaded tip, is that typical or do only certain probes have that feature? I was looking at these:

But this one shows specifically the end comes off and has the tip.

What exactly do you mean with spring loaded tip? Common scope probes have a sharp pointy tip that is usually not spring loaded (there are exceptions, but these are usually the $100+ Agilent probes, not the $10 nonames). Probes almost always come with a removable witches' hat (retractable hook) which is spring loaded and features a hook that can hook onto test points / wires / components. I haven't seen any scope probes where the retractable hook is not removable.

Yeah I guess that's what I meant.  I had thought the spring part of the hat was in the probe.

So yeah I'm wanting probes with the hat and the pointy end.

If they pretty much all come that way then I'll get some.
