What is the compatability of the FM-0 Probe Handle with Reotemp Compost Thermometers?
How does the probe guard handle attach to the compost thermometer?
There is a 1/2" threaded connection on the underside of the Heavy Duty and Super Duty Fast Response models. The probe guard handle slides up the stem and onto the threads on the back of the dial, holding it securely in place.
You now have a sturdy handle to push your probe into the pile and pull it back out. The probe guard handle keeps you from grabbing onto the dial face, which is not recommended and can cause damage to your probe.
Will the probe guard handle fit the thermometers I purchased in the past?
Yes. Our Heavy Duty and Super Duty with Fast Response models aways have threaded connections on the back of the dial.
Note: the backyard model is not compatible with the probe guard handle. It's shorter 20" stem is less prone to bending and doesn't require a probe guard handle.
