They use to sell a flasher about the size of a two to three prong adapter for Christmas lights. In high school I put one on the film projector in science class. The film would start, stop, start, stop.
Now days they would probably label me a terrorist.

Haha! If I used that buzzbulb in a motion sensor light like they are intended, then every time the deer come by at night my neighbors and I and my whole family will wake up! That thing wouldn't work as it's intended.

I've managed to copy and paste so much, I created what you all believe to be 'the internet'.

However, it is all a sham and doesn't truly exist. Nothing in your world is a reality. Don't follow the white rabbit.

The buzz bulb doesn't deter deer as it's advertised, at least not up here anyway. It's pitch is detectable even when one of the crews has a radio blaring. It is a piercing sound, yet not annoying. It's not a method I use, but it is an option. I keep a heat gun in one of my boxes for heat shrink/well splices. If you can't find a 12A difference with a clamp, than search harder

I have yet to confide in a circuit tracer that will work in a fully loaded panel. I want something that will work each and every time, and I haven't found one yet that's worth the money. Anyone else??????????

My only point was that if I used that me and all my neighbors would be pissed from it constantly going off from animals tripping it.
