HelpText doesnot appear on the VF Page

I am trying to add the HelpText in to the VF Page and I tried few options like below and none of them is working for me. Added the HelpText in the <apex:pageblockSectionItem>
<apex:pageblockSectionItem >
   <apex:outputPanel >
      <div class="ListLevel02">
         <apex:outputLabel value="Type 1" HelpText = "Test"></apex:outputLabel>
      </div> 
   </apex:outputPanel>
   <apex:inputcheckbox value="{!conRec.Type_I__c}" styleClass="ListLevel02"></apex:inputcheckbox>
  </apex:pageblockSectionItem>
User-added image
HelpText is not enabled and cant click on them. I tried to have the HelpText added at the field
User-added image
And tried using them like
<apex:pageblockSectionItem HelpText = '{!$ObjectType.Contact.Fields.Type_I__c.inlineHelpText}'>


Even this has the same behaviour. Can anyone say what am I missing here

Hi Vel,

It should work with below.

<apex:pageblockSectionItem HelpText = '{!$ObjectType.Contact.Fields.Type_I__c.inlineHelpText}'>

Can you review below links which have working examples

Hello Vinay, 

Yes I tried all those forums none of them is helping. I tried giving the helpText = "{!$ObjectType.Contact.Fields.Type_I__c.inlineHelpText}"  or  giving the string directly helpText = "Test"  as showed in the image it shows ? but that is diabled. I also set the showHeader to true even then I see the same behavior
