    Answer This Question

    A:  No. The sensor on the back of the meter needs to be in contact with the surface of the drywall.

          Not as Accurate as Pin Model
          I'll start by saying that I primarily use this for wood working. I really want to like this, I have other Klein tools that I love and this sort of misses the mark. I bought this because I didn't want to damage the wood I was using with pins, and this looked great for that. What I found was that the Klein was regularly off 2-3% vs my pinned model. I settled with 3 stars though is because it's consistent, so I can still use this to check when the moisture level has settled and stopped decreasing.

            No more moist wood
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Need to keep my wood dry and klien got my back. I build cabinets and this lets me monitor the moisture content in the wood, and it works great.

              Does the job very well, compared to more expensive models. My remediation service had one that cost a lot more and we had the same readings.

              Here is a product that lives up to the Klein reputation for quality and utility. This moisture meter measures the moisture in drywall, masonry, softwood and hardwood. I have used it to measure moisture levels after repairing drywall, painting and applying mortar to concrete block. Using the meter to measure the moisture content provided information on when I could apply a second coat of paint, mortar and drywall mud. It has a sturdy outer case and an easy to read clear display. There are three buttons, an on button, a mode button that changes the material to be measured, and a hold button to save readings. The screen measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches.

              This is a great moisture meter and I find it accurate. It is pinless which avoids the little damage a pinned meter can cause. The settings are great: drywall, masonry, hardwood (oak, maple, etc.) and softwood (pine, poplar, etc.). The moisture meter is very easy to use, I didn't even have to look at the directions. It comes with a 9v battery so you can get it started quickly. You can easily hold a reading too. It measures as accurate as my pinned meter although I find the pine better for some jobs, like inspecting the top of fascia boards under roof shingles. One thing I did find odd with this moisture meter is it considered some moist drywall near a window of mine (@ 25%) as dry. One downside I found to this meter is it does not have a loop/lasso for holding or hanging it in the workshop.

              The Dry/Wet LED Bar Doesn't Work
              I have zero experience measuring moisture in drywall, and I haven't a clue what percentage of moisture my drywall should have at any given time. The Dry/Wet LED bar was a critical reason for choosing this particular meter, but it doesn't do anything at all unless I try to measure the moisture in my arm, which, of course, lights up the whole machine and triggers an alarm. Thumbs down on this tool. :(
