Dot Comment Users Discuss Release of New Ridgid Inspection Camera

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Ridgid cordless tools are welcoming a new tool to the line, the view-only micro CA-25 handheld inspection camera, and professionals within the community are ready to review, discuss, and compare to other inspection cameras.

Designed for professional use in tight spaces, the Ridgid inspection camera gives users added sight and a quick view of hard-to-reach spots. The view-only feature was built as a simplified way to find and diagnose problems quickly and accurately. The camera is permanently attached to a fixed three-foot cable and can easily slide into tight spots behind walls, in ceilings, mechanical devices, and plumbing fixtures, making it a versatile tool for the trades.

“Inspection cameras are great to have around for anyone, because you never know when you’re going to need one,” said Tom Klein, vice president of marketing and merchandising with ToolSelect. “This new Ridgid inspection camera was built specifically to be ready to go if and when someone needs it, and we’re looking forward to seeing how our community responds to it.”

According to, it is an unbiased online community powered by its members that covers all aspects, types, and brands of tools, but does not actually sell any tools. ToolSelect’s members include everyone from experienced tradesmen to novices. Users trade tips, compare notes, debate their favorite tools, and work together to help each other make intelligent purchasing decisions.
