To get started with your Iscope, you'll need to extend it to the length you desire. If you don't need it to be lengthy, you can keep it at six inches, but to make it longer, just gently pull on its head. By doing so, you'll be able to extend it up to a length of more than two feet. If you decide that you want it to be shorter again, you'll be able to quickly reverse this process by gently pushing the device's head back into its body.
Once your tool's head is extended to the length of your choice, you can then bend the head to adjust the angle. You'll have a wide variety of angles to choose from since the end of the head will rotate 360 degrees and can be tilted up or down, too. As with the length of your tool's head, your chosen angle can be quickly adjusted when necessary.
If you need illumination, your final step will be to turn on your device's LED lights with a flick of the power button, which can be found on the outside of the tool's body. At this point, you may also want to attach the tool's magnetic base to a metal surface, but carrying the tool with you is another option, as is setting it down on a non-metal surface. Remember to turn it off via the power button when you're done using it, in order to conserve battery power.
Each Iscope is black, and slender in comparison to many flashlights, giving it a sleek look. The slender nature of each one also means that almost anyone will be able to carry theirs in one hand without running a huge risk of dropping it.
Both the top of this device's head and its base are magnetic. Therefore, not only can you use either end of this tool to pick up a variety of small metal objects, such as some coins, but you can also attach the base to certain things. The magnetic base will come in especially handy when you want to use this tool to illuminate parts of your car, as the base will attach directly to the exterior of the vehicle.
The flashlight function that this tool is equipped with will likely last you for at least a few years since its LED bulbs will burn for up to 100, 000 hours before burning out. When they do burn out, you may be able to replace them, and even if not, you can still use your tool as a magnet and a hook that'll grab things.
Every Iscope has been constructed with aircraft-grade aluminum that may be able to withstand hundreds of pounds of pressure without breaking. Although the slender design of each tool helps guard against accidental drops, if you do drop yours, it probably won't end up being permanently damaged. Each tool's magnets are also strong enough to support objects that weigh up to 2.5 pounds.
The body of each device contains a silver clip that you'll be able to use to attach it to your belt, or to another piece of clothing or an accessory. This means that when you're not using it as a flashlight, hook or magnet at the moment, you'll be able to keep it near you but also keep both of your hands available for use.
The light that each of these tools emits is bright and white, as opposed to light that's yellow or amber-colored, so it'll allow you to see virtually anything as clearly as possible. The light is also meant to resemble daylight, which means you probably won't find it so bright that it gives you a headache. As a result, if you're using it to complete a home or vehicle repair job, you may be able to use it for hours at a time without taking a break.
When you consider that it's both a hook and a magnet, you'll be able to use your Iscope to pick up a wide variety of things, as long as they weigh under 2.5 pounds. You might want to bend its head and use it as a hook alone to grab objects that have fallen behind furniture or appliances. Alternatively, you might choose to use the head's magnet to pick up objects that respond to magnetic attraction from the floor or the ground. Given its maximum length of more than two feet, this tool will even fit down your drain.
Many tools available these days require batteries, but it seems that not many come with them. Fortunately, the Iscope is one of those seemingly rare tools that does come with a set of batteries that will fit inside it. You'll have to obtain any replacement sets of batteries you need down the road on your own, but at least you'll get one set to get yourself started with your new tool.
There's no information provided in regard to whether this three-in-one tool is waterproof or not, so it may not even be water-resistant. Unless you can find more information that indicates that the device is waterproof, you'll have to be careful about using it outdoors in the rain or snow. To keep it safe, you may need to obtain some sort of plastic case to keep it in while you're out in those conditions.
It would be nice if the entire head of this device could bend in a flexible manner, once extended, but in actuality, only the very top (about two or three inches of it) does. Consequently, you'll have to hold your tool like it's a fishing pole if you've extended its head in its entirety in order to grab something that's fallen deep into some crevice.
On a related note, you must be gentle with your device's head when bending or rotating its top or moving it in any way. The top will bend due to a spring that connects it to the rest of the tool, and if you're not careful, the spring—which is more delicate than the rest of each device—could break.
