Well he's holding it upside down OK, but you get the idea,

just press it lightly against an interior wall, (try it on your skin for comparison and pressure)
and ideally you want O,O% but anything up to 5 % is good,


anything beyond that needs looking into, and room for manouvere on the price

'hold' option is for small areas the meter reaches but you can't get near enough to ciew screen,
apply pins to wall, hit the 'hold' button and display figure is shown until you release it

press it against your skin and see how high your very own moisture content is!
