Questions & Answers

Will the Stud Detector find studs under lathe and plaster walls? Most of the older stud finders I have used in the past couldn't identify the stud under the lathes. Will this Whole Stud Detector be able to identify the studs behind the lathes?
Asked by: Jerome
I didn't have much luck at all. I have a textured plaster wall though too, which makes it even more difficult. It may work for you, or it may work if you are willing to search and verify several times for long periods of time. I can find a stud better and faster than that just tapping on the wall. It did find unshielded A/C lines accurately though.

Can this be used to find floor joist through carpet?

Asked by: Redinator
Yes you can. Since I have purchased the stud finder I don’t have to find things the old way my father showed me. Knocking on walls with your knuckles or tapped mg lightly with a hammer. Now I don’t have extra mistakes to fix. Sorry I’m not able to send a snap shot of the project.

Asked by: Ray
Sorry i took so long to get back to you. It will detect electrical but the stud finding is suspect. I would not want to stake my life or reputation on its ability to see through ceramic.

Whole Stud Detector with Auto Depth Scan is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 306.

Right off the bat, it has two buttons that both must be depressed constantly for it to work . This is a pain for overhead use. Secondly, and most importantly, this thing could not find a stud to save it's life. I tried it on multiple walls, on ceilings, all over the place, and it would not consistently find a stud. Even if it did find a stud, if I went past it and came back, the stud would no longer be there. Also, if there is an an electrical wire ANYWHERE NEAR the area where you are working, the AC alarm stays on, so it is impossible to detect where it actually is. trusted this thing one time. I found a ceiling joist, marked the center with the button, making a dimple in the ceiling. When I drilled, I didn't even nick the joist. Nothing but air. This thing is going back to the store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inaccurate I usually don't review products but this product is so frustrating I had to, I have used a similar stud finder by a different brand that I loved, but it suffered a few drops from a ladder and it's accuracy was off, so I gave this one a shot. Very disappointing, it's inaccurate in locating studs and often finds "elecotrical lines" in walls with no electricity. Spend the extra money and go with the Franklin, and try not to drop it

I brought it and it made me missed while attempting screw to the stud not the drywall alone. so I use old fashion way magnet and it show different location from what this product shows.

Like the other reviewer said, there are two buttons on the bottom of the device, one on each side, that have to be pressed up to operate the unit. You essentially hold it like you would a sandwich or hamburger. If your hands are not to the sides against the wall and are more on top of the unit you will trigger the AC detector. It's incredibly sensitive. If your hands are too far over the top you will trigger the sensors for the stud detector. It's also incredibly sensitive. In fact, the image of the person holding the unit would most definitely set off the AC Detector and most likely the pointer fingers would interfere with the stud detection. The center button basically marks the wall where you press it, and is probably the best feature of the unit, however, since it's so inaccurate it's useless.
