DJ Equipment can be subjected to quite harsh environments through use and packing up and moving from venue to venue. We PAT test all DJ items from Mixing desks made by the likes of Pioneer, Numark and Denon. Safety electrical testing of playback equipment like CDJ decks and Technics vinyl decks to ensure they’re safe and well maintained.
A common failure for DJ equipment during a Portable Appliance Test (PAT) is nicked mains cables. Trapping a mains cable in a flightcase is a popular fault and can cause a rise of risk of fire and electrocution through damage in the insulation. If a signal cable touched live mains it could also blow up your equipment.

My mate has a reel of stickers he can do it far cheaper than you.
Unfortunately this short sightedness may feel like a box is ticked and nobody will get hurt, however there is no certainty to your luck. In order for us to “just put a sticker on your equipment” we carry out continual training and can spot potential issues which could cause an issue or be potentially dangerous. Also many venues will also require a certificate to be emailed or sent over before you play, if this doesn’t look right the venue may not let you play!
