Tracer Products has introduced the patented TP-9350 COBRA, the only multi-purpose borescope that makes it possible for technicians to inspect and leak check hard-to-see components without expensive disassembly. It is perfect for inspecting A/C systems, fuel systems, EVAP systems, radiators, internal engine and transmission parts, and much more.

The cordless, lightweight COBRA borescope features a flexible, yet rigid, 24-inch cable that maintains its position in tight areas. A clip-on inspection mirror provides the added capability to detect flaws normally hidden from view. Four “AA” alkaline batteries power two service-free, integrated solid-state LEDs (UV for fluorescent leak detection and detecting surface flaws, and bright white for component inspection). Fluorescence-enhancing glasses for use with UV light and fluorescent leak detection dyes (dyes sold separately) are also included. All components are packed in a sturdy plastic carrying case with a foam insert.
