Step 5: Done!

Picture of Done!
Do the other probe(s) and you're done.

What a difference! There is now so much less chance of destroying things if the probe slips. Worst you can do is short the adjacent pin. This should happen only briefly due to the small area of the tip and the fact that you slipped so it's moving.

I hope this simple tip saves you both money and grief in your circuit testing future.
