Greetings,

In one store they were locked behind a Plexiglas
cabinet.

In another, there was one in the reduced price
section. It had a $20.00 price tag on it. The
battery was dead. Uses a 9-volt cell.

Called a DB Meter 003399101201 is the number.

Maybe the front desk can check the inventory.

I found none at my local Wal-Mart. In what specfic
section of the auto
dept are they? It seems odd that the would be in
the car dept. We have car
radios/speakers adjacent to the auto section. I
checked, but nothing...
