Using the Probe
.
Set the Probe near the center of  the Trigger area.
.
Keep the gold triangle cursor in the center of the probe "eye" at all times, then L-Click the mouse. 
.
While the dial is turning counter-clockwise, L-Click just as it approaches the "sweet spot" ( a gold region near the bottom of the dial).  If you miss the sweet spot, just click the Cancel Button in the lower left corner of the screen and try until you are successful.
 
Here is an example which shows where 
you should do the second L-Click. 
Notice that the dial pointer has just  
about reached the "sweet spot".  When 
the dial is spinning at full speed, clicking at this spot will allow the dial to drift into the gold area if your reflexes are at least average.  PRACTICE!
 
Use the same procedure to identify the Mechanism and Delivery areas 
with the probe.
.
 
Using the Disarm Tools 
.
Select the BEST tool for the type of trap component.  Using a tool which hasn't been designed to disarm the particular component will work, but the sweet spot will be much smaller, and you'll need to be a quicker clicker.
