Hybrid/Electric Vehicles like the Toyota Prius must have the high voltage system shut down before performing any maintenance on or near the high voltage circuits, wiring or components. Special gloves for working with high voltage circuits are required for shutting down and working on or near high voltage systems. My guest, Matt Block from Magid Glove and Safety, explains these gloves and how to use, maintain and re-certify them.

Removal of the service jack on a Toyota Prius is then explained and demonstrated.
