Product Overview

This Center Sensor Stud Finder has a detection depth of 1-1/2 in. for wood and metal. Traditional stud sensors locate the edge of the stud, but our new product locates the center for a more efficient read, even when held at an angle. Plus, it is constantly calibrating to save time during use. An audible alert and directional LED arrows clearly notify you once the stud is located and you can easily mark the center of the stud with the center marking channel.
  • Center find technology to easily find the center of the stud, even when held at an angle
  • AC and live wire detection for added safety

  • Audible alert for clear notification of stud location
  • Detection depth of 1-1/2 in. for wood and metal

Asked by Jade September 21, 2020

Answer

I would have my doubts not just because of depth, but also how smooth is the panelling, the finder needs a consistent surface. Give it a try, I’d give about a 75% chance of success.

The level retails for 199 the stud finder retails for 25 how is the total value 269?

The 1 1/2" stud finder was easy to use on the drywall in my house. You may get lucky and have a contractor answer your question about the 3/4" drywall.

I’m in love! Worked like a charm. Directions a bit lacking but I watched a you-tube video of a similar model. I don’t know how I lived without this for 63 years! Love the fact that it shows you the exact center of the stud. Definitely worth the money.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Great stud sensor with a host of useful features. It auto calibrates, finds stud edges and centers automatically as well as live wires and metal objects to a depth of 1-1/2 inches. It isn’t fool proof but generally works well. Loud alerts and bright LED lights confirm findings. My old stud finder is quite bulky and while generally usable it is prone to false alarms and exaggerated stud widths so results need to be verified with two or three passes. I tried it out in my unfinished basement so I could see the actual results and the wire finder was particularly sensitive – see video. The stud center feature is a great function and takes the guess work out of where to put the screw or nail. I also tried out the stud sensor in finished areas of my home and it was rarely fooled. Still best to measure/find twice and cut/drill once!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Eliminate the guesswork with the 1-1/2 IN. STUD FINDER, after flipping up the cover by a tab on the bottom, you insert the supply batteries. Very easy to use, you press and hold down the button and move slowly and it detects power and center of studs, wood or metal! It will work on a angle as thats a area I needed to do and it would only fit on a angle. The red light is for power, there are 2 arrows for left and right movement and a center light for center of stud!

Weird shape, but works great!
Customer review from dewalt.com logo
When I first opened the package I was immediately surprised by its shape. It's not shaped like any stud finder I've used before. Its very flat, and as large as my hand. It's incredibly light however. I installed the included battery and started searching for my studs. Its as easy as placing it on the wall while holding the button down. The lights light up when its on the edge of a stud with arrows, and if your over electrical current the AC button will light up. So far its worked perfect and has spotted every stud dead on.

The Best Stud Finder out there. A must have!
Customer review from dewalt.com logo
I needed to give a wall a clean cut via the stud. I used the Dewalt stud finder to start my cut, and I was amazed with the accuracy of this tool. It always found the center of the stud effortlessly. The tool will indicate if it needs to be moved to the left or right to find the center. Once the center is reached you will hear a audible alert. It also warns you if there's live wires in the wall. This tool is not bulky but easy to use and the features are awesome. Improving productivity which is always a plus for me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Lightweight with great features
Customer review from dewalt.com logo
Lightweight with great features I love how it was packaged flat and transparent which gave you an excellent view of the tool. Another bonus was that the batteries were included which made it very easy to use right away. Talking about features and design it is well thought out. The ability to mark the center of the stud through the center of the tool is a great feature. In addition, the arrows indicating to move left or right to once it detects a stud or electrical wire is a nice touch. Like most stud finders you hold the power button to initiate which only takes a couple of seconds then place it on the wall and move it slowly from left to right or vice versa. It auto-calibrates and it was dead on finding the center of the stud each time. It has a wide footprint and won’t cause fatigue if you use it for an extended time. Another nice feature is the ability to detect hot electrical wires. The only issue I had was with the handle space between the base. It was a little small so it took some trial and error with hand and finger placement. But once I figured out the appropriate position for my hand it was comfortable. A great addition to my tool arsenal which has already paid off for my jobs I have completed. I would highly recommend this stud finder. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Very usefull and just in time!
Customer review from dewalt.com logo
I'm a handyman and stud finder is very useful tool in my bag. All studfinders I used before had problems. Some of them were very expensive another one didn't work properly. New DeWalt stud finder DW0150 came just in time when my previous stud finder (Zircon HD800) stops working. DW0150 works perfect, uses 2 AAA batteries (it's convinient for everyday use), is pretty small and thin. I recomend this product for using by handymen, DIY and homeowners.
