    This is the most unsafe way of teaching an home owner to test for power.
    You should never use a glowstick! you should use a “wiggy” to verify power.
    If there is ever ANY question if power is present turn off the main.
    Electricity is something that shoul be left up to us professionals to do
    and not a weekend home builder.NEVER TRUST A GLOW STICK!!!!

    You’r all wrong, a voltage stick is a reliable method of detecting voltage,
    any other method relies on a potential difference which may not be present
    across the points of contact. I regularly rely on a voltage stick for my
    safety. If it give a false indication it will be on the safe side. However
    I certainly wouldn’t accept that a circuit breaker is a suitable means of
    isolation.

    Votage sticks are great as a rough indication, but still I would test using
    a meter or a tester screwdriver before touching anything.

    This is very dangerous! Very unreliable test instrument. Use a voltage
    indicating device and a known voltage circuit/proving circuit.

    my dad loves doing stuff like that…. with the power still on. he once
    tried to cut through some wire in the attic and i had to inform him that he
    had just burnt out a notch into his own dikes
