Fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT. Careful, it doesn’t work!

The owners of fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT complained that… they hadn’t been about to buy a counterfeit Garrett product – it was sold as authentic, maybe a little bit cheaper. So be careful – fake Garrett devices are mainly not personally handed from a seller to a customer but are pushed when it’s a purchase with a delivery option. And it’s impossible, much less just by looking at a picture, to distinguish at once between the fake and original unit. Everything looks similar, the counterfeit probe has even better package appearance. Well, you should know this Chinese approach… And it’s just the minute details because of which you can discern the difference. Half of all fake pinpointers don’t work at all, and even those that are operational fall far short of the authentic product. Moreover, all of them can’t be submerged in water as they leak right on the first submersion (the original is waterproof). Here are the pics (+ what’s inside the fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT):

  • Yeah, I got one that was fake.If it costs a lot less, don’t buy it.

  • Ronald, how did it work? If it works and its not waterproof is it on par with the old ‘black’ pinpointer? If it works and it was cheaper and you know it isn’t an original and purchased it knowing it wasn’t real, why arn’t you happy with your purchase? Was it defective in some other way?

    I’m happy using a Cen-Tech pin-pointer, it works, it was cheap, I know its limits (not to be used in the Australian summer or in water….) and I don’t use it as a digging tool. I see a lot of videos where people use their pin-pointers as a digging tool trying to scrape away hard packed soil and then they complain that their device isn’t working….

    Aside from the colour not being right, do the fakes all have the exact same serial number? This was a thing in the past with the fakes using just a handful of numbers, easy to spot if you knew the numbers to look for. I have seen the fakes in a local Brisbane market a year or so back, highly discounted and they all worked but not as well as the original item.

    • It barley worked, you couldn’t pull the board out, it was wired into into the housing. Box and Pin-Pointer also looked like a Garrett.

  • But the one in the picture is original.

  • So what is what in those pics?
