Unlike an electronic stud finder, this one never needs batteries; plus, it indicates the thickness of your wallboard, so you can choose the correct screw or anchor. Of particular usefulness is the Stud Finder's unparalleled utility at locating ceiling joists, especially on textured ceilings which often prevent electronic or even magnetic stud finders from being effective.

Simply press the nose straight into the wallboard so the fine needle (only 0.027" diameter) can penetrate. If the nose does not retract all the way into the body of the finder, you've found your stud (you'll feel when the needle hits it). If you can push the needle all the way through, however, simply move it over and try again. That's all there is to it.

The markings on the side of the nose show you how thick the wallboard is. They are shown in millimeters, but it's easy to check the distance against any ruler.

  • Mechanical Stud Finder

    David Petre, 5/24/2017 I bought one of these years ago from Garrett Wade and used it with great results, but it was starting to show its age - the depth gauge was well worn and it was getting hard to read. The one I just purchased has several improvements over the earlier model - the depth gauge is protected by a clear shield, and the magnetic tip is provided for metal studs. Overall, the new stud finder is stronger and better balanced than the earlier model. This is an extremely handy device that takes the guesswork out of locating studs and ceiling joists. For the money, it's a must have for any homeowner. Get the extra pins to go with the stud finder - they do wear out and bend after a while.
  • The very best stud finder

    Roy Hill, 4/13/2016 Absolutely the best stud finder on the market. I am never without one in my tool pouch. In fact I always keep a spare. I have given several of these as gifts and many people ask me where I got my stud finder when they see me use it. You will not be disappointed with this product.
