You know, there's nothing that gets me more excited than a cool new tool. And this one from Ridgid, well, it certainly qualifies. It's called the SeeSnake Micro Inspection Camera. Now this is a small TV camera right here and there are two LED lights. And what this allows me to do is to see into places that normally I couldn't look into. For example, inside a wall. Now what I've done up here is drill a hole near the top and I'm going to insert the camera in, in here. Take a look. Pretty cool, huh? It's like having X-ray vision inside the wall. Come on back here, I want to show you something, give you a behind-the-scenes look. I'm going to open up this door and we can actually see what we were looking at through the camera. Here's the camera right up here. Here's the electrical box. This is blown in insulation which has settled. So these are all the kinds of things you might want to look for with a tool like that. Now here's another place where this tool might come in handy. Let's say you want to inspect your air conditioner heating ducts. Now most of these vents lift out or they unscrew if they're in the wall. Let's take a peek down in here. Oh, the kids have been wondering where that went, huh?
