Product Overview

The Zircon StudSensor HD55 detects the edges of studs in walls up to 1-1/2 in. deep, allowing you to identify the ideal weight-bearing midpoint for anchoring heavy wall-mounted objects. Just slide the battery-operated instrument along a wall and the LCD display's Target Spotlight will alert you to the presence of a stud edge. The handy SpotLite Pointer on top of the device lets you precisely mark the wall with a pencil courtesy of an illuminated V-shaped groove. Slide it farther along to find the other stud edge, split the difference, and you've located the stud center.

  • Enhanced LCD display with Target Spotlight indicates approaching stud edge and illuminates when stud edge is detected
  • WireWarning detection indicates the presence of live, unshielded AC electrical wiring up to 2 in. (51 mm) deep
  • Patented over-the-stud indication alerts the user to start the scan in a new location if scanning begins over a stud
  • SpotLite Pointer shines an arrow-shaped light on the wall to clearly indicate the edge of the stud
  • StudScan mode locates the edges of wood or metal studs up to 3/4 in. (19 mm) deep
  • DeepScan mode doubles the scanning depth to 1-1/2 in. (38 mm) deep
  • Requires 9-Volt battery (sold separately)
  • Great solution for all your detection needs

Is there a setting where it will beep or otherwise communicate audibly when you've found a stud? I'm looking for stud finders that would be appropriate for blind persons.

how does wire warning detection work

Asked by: Ronnie
Wire warning detection on this stud sensor is very limited. Infact, some newer smart phones have the same sensing capability to detect electrical wiring. The detection works by having the sensor observe its own magnetic field, which will be distorted when it passes over an electrically charged ferrous metal. Think of two magnets as they approach each other or of the old etch-a-sketch toy. If you held two magnets over the etch-a-sketch, you revealed magnetic field patterns.

StudSensor HD55 Stud Finder is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 280.

I needed to make a fairly large hole in the exterior wall for a dog door, and I wanted to accurately know where the studs were, before tearing up the drywall. My $7 stud finder gave me all kinds of locations, and I did not feel confident with the readings, so I bought the HD55. The HD55 gave me readings along the wall that were all less than a half-inch of each other. After cutting out the drywall, it was clear that the HD55 was spot-on in locating all of the studs. The wall that I was cutting out was near a receptacle as well. The HD55 did not alert to any live wires under the wall, and none were there. This stud-finder was a huge improvement over the "bargain" stud finder that I had used before.

I am really skeptical about stud finders, but I got this one and it seems to work very well. I had a huge magnate stud finder that worked alright but not that good. This one worked amazingly well and I was able to find the center of the stud rather then guess or put exploratory nails in. So far I am happy with how it works. I also like the the lighted pointer that shows you where it is. You have to put it on the wall a couple of times to get it to work right, but it is easy and consistent. I have had it for about two weeks and it helped with the jobs I needed done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stud Finder Needed a stud finder that would penetrate deeper than the current one I use. Same brand, different model and mine is older. Wouldn't find studs in a manufactured home easily. I checked online and saw the recommendation for a better finder. I went to Home Depot and found the current "better" model. It easily assisted in finding the studs. Project completed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found edges of each stud accurately, easy to operate, worth the $ spent This unit replaces another stud finder I bought at Harbor Freight. It excels because of the range of depth that it can find studs, plus it finds the edges of each stud, making it easy to locate the center of the stud when moving it across the surface of the drywall. This is important when hanging pictures quickly & easily.

No matter where I placed it on the wall the warning came up so I tried other surfaces. Closet door? Electrical. Top of jewelry box? Electrical. Cardboard box? Electrical. As far as finding studs it's ok but if you have any concerns about location of electrical wiring don't trust this item to give you a correct reading.

I followed all the instructions and trouble-shooting tips. It called out studs and when I drilled the holes, no studs. Tried both "stud-scan" and "deep-scan" modes. Happened 3 times before I gave up and went to the old tried and true method of pounding on wall. Don't waste your time & money
