Yeah. Now I'm really curious too. Sex shop? Old people's care center? The Veterinarian?

Oh well hell, I go there regularly. You're not losing any man points, man!
They carry good bar-cessories too. Like the margarita sets or the liquor carousels or the gas-pump liquor dispensers.

If its anything like one of the ones I have theres still a chance that liquid can get between the probe and the silicone covering.

OK so I tried to put the silicone tubing on my thermo twice now with keg lube and I've spent a couple hours. I just can't get it to budge anymore! How the heck did you guys do this? Any tips would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

What I did was hold the front and back of the probe, I'd pull some tubing onto the probe, then hold tight with that hand and release the back hand (That was holding the probe in place)

Basically I "bunched" up the tubing on the probe, then let it slide back over the cord, though no bunching actually happens, it just expands a little and compresses.

Bumped and prost'd.

Thanks for the method, I'm going to try this out with my probe thermometer since I had a nightmare with an instant read going on the fritz on Saturday. I ended up delicately dangling the probe in the mash and praying I wouldn't ruin it.
This method will save me the worry so I can RDWH-another-HB next time.

I batch sparge in a coleman cooler, and use a Term like the ones in this thread. I have been duck tapiong it to the side (above the mash line), but would like to submerge it compleatly but with out the possibility of snagging the cord while sturring. Any suggestions on what I could use to hold it down to the bottom of the cooler? I saw silacone tape at HD, would this work, and still not impart off flavors on my brew?

BTW, I fried my first therm ( braided wire type), by submerging. I then purchased another at Wally World $14 bucks that is not a braded line to the probe, but rather a silacone line. I used shrink wrap on the ned where the line meets the probwe and sealed top & bottom with zip ties.
