    Q:How to find the two edges of the stud?
    by|Jan 29, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, Finder - Slowly move the stud finder horizontally until it beeps or lights up, indicating the presence of a stud. Mark the spot with a pencil and then move the stud finder vertically to locate the edges of the stud. We hope this helps! If you need further support, then call or text us at 1.800.525.2579, Monday - Friday from 9 am to 5 pm (EST), or through email when you visit us at https://www.ryobitools.com/support/contact.

        Q:Does this scan well over lightly textured walls; i.e., does it require full contact with a surface?
        by|Dec 23, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello, Sabrina - Thank you for your question. Lightly textured walls will work with the stud finder, but you will have better results when in full contact with the wall. I hope this helps! Additionally, if you need further support, then a RYOBI Customer Experience Professional is here for you, Monday - Friday from 9 am to 6 pm (EST) when you call or text us at 1.800.525.2579 or through email when you visit us at https://www.ryobitools.com/support/contact. And thank you again for your interest in the Whole Stud Finder. - Emily

          Extremely accurate & easy to use
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My old stud finder can NOT compare to this. It only took me about 2 minutes to perfect the skill needed to expertly use this tool. I love that the lights indicate exactly where the stud is. The floating shelf was a breeze to install thanks to the accuracy of this tool. (I took a video but the video won't upload)

            Feeble-minded friendly..!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Handy little gadget for locating stubborn timber behind your walls. Intuitive and easy enough to use even a Gen Z’r can feel accomplished.

              Easy to use
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very easy to use. My son even got a kick out of learning to use it.

                Stopped working. Used maybe 1-2x.
                Purchased about a year ago. Used maybe 1-2x. Pulled it out today and it just doesnt work. Manufacturer warranty is 90 days. Good to know Ryobi doesnt think much of this product either.

                  Great for finding and marking the studs
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just bought this stud finder! Have only used is for a brief moment. But I have bought other Ryobi products before and have been vary satisfied with them.

                    Great Stud Finder

                      Clear as a bell
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Straight forward and simple. Hasn't failed me yet. Love the stud marker button. Bright lights ensure alignment.

                        worst stud finder ever
                        You have to hold the button on for seconds for it to register no stud. If you lift the studfinder, even slighly as you slide the studfinder across the wall, it loses its setting. it The stidfinder does not slide smooth so you lose the setting all the time. Going back. Not a typical Ryobi product.

                          Effective and simple to use
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first stud detector and it's really great. The usage is straight forward - just unpack and press one button. Can be used with both left and right hand. The green diodes light-up to show the stud edges and there is also a light around the central button to show the stud center. Great product!

                            Just doesn’t work
                            So this doesn’t play well with insulation or real anything fulling up space. I’ve consistently had to recalibrate to no avail. Or turns out I have 4 foot wide studs in my den. Nothing quite like patching a few drill whole in your new home 0/10 would not recommend.
