Risk of electric shock from other sources.
Klein Tools state that a fastener:
"can work itself loose over time, potentially leading to a false reading when measuring voltage. This issue could indicate a reading of zero voltage on energized systems resulting in the operator falsely believing the electrical power is off, posing shock, electrocution and burn hazards."
