Product Details

The StudBuddy is The World's Simplest Stud Finder. The StudBuddy stud finder hangs on the wall hands free for visual reference when hanging shelves, cabinets, paintings, mirrors, hooks, flat screen televisions and other heavy objects. The simple to use stud finder works with all drywall applications by locating nails and screws in wood and metal studs. No batteries, electronic or moving parts. Having spent the last 40-years as a framer, carpenter, builder, designer and general contractor, The StudBuddy creator felt there must be a simpler and more accurate way of locating framing studs. Many people get frustrated with using electronic stud finders, the tapping method or drilling multiple holes to locate studs which can be costly to repair and repaint. Several-years ago, while playing with strong neodymium magnets, The StudBuddy inventor suddenly saw the ease of locating drywall nails and screws and therefore, stud location.

    A:  I guess you could, but this is designed to actually glide on the wall without leaving any marks that you would need to touch up.

      A:  You certainly could. By the time you imbed the magnets you bought into a handle you've wasted more time thanis worth it IMHO. My question to you: why wouldn't you just do your project instead of wasting the time of everyone who ever bought this.

      WOW! I was pleasantly surprised how great this little gem...
      WOW! I was pleasantly surprised how great this little gem worked. It was nestled among the other stud finders costing upwards of $100. But it works exactly as advertised. The powerful magnet in it will find the nails in your wall and "stick" to them as you slowly move it around the wall seams or studs. After you find the first nail/screw/stud it's fairly predictable to find others vertically on the same stud and even horizontally across nearby studs. All DIY'ers need one of these, especially for the low cost.

        Piece of junk
        Don't buy this I ruined a wall using it. I spent a lot of time using this to find a stud in the wall, it did not find any, so i prepared to use mounting clasps for a non stud drywall hole. As soon as i drilled i hit a a stud which this piece of junk never found. Now i have A HUGE HOLE IN THE WALL THAT I HAVE TO PATCH AND PAINT! the problem is that all it is is a simple magnet, and it finds the nails in the stud BUT what if the nails are farther back, or not there, then you end up with the mess that i have. I wish the maker would refund my costs for repairing the wall. I am going to smash it with my hammer and throw it in the garbage.

          Best way to find studs!!!
          I think this is the best stud finder out there. I used electronic stud finders in the past and they were always inaccurate and I tried using many different kinds, but all performed very poorly. This resulted in having many holes in my wall which I had to patch and paint over. This stud finder uses a magenet that finds drywall screws and sticks to it on the wall. Guranteed to find a stud every time!! I would recommend covering the bottom with a pad of some sort or felt to protect your walls from getting scratched!!

            Beats electronic stud finders!!
            I have been using a 100 lbs magnet to locate studs but this stud finder works awesome!! I was never a fan of electronic stud finders as they were always unreliable but magnets work great because they locate the drywall screws that attach the drywall to the studs. I would recommen gluing on some felt to the bottom of this so that it does not make marks on your wall

            So easy to use!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have used multiple stud finders in the past and have always found it confusing to actually pinpoint where studs are. It seems like they just beep randomly and never seem to beep in the same spot twice. I was a little skeptical of the studbuddy but it was actually incredibly simple to use. When it passes over a stud, it hangs on the wall making it incredibly obvious where to drill. I also found it worked equally well on drywall walls and wood paneling (another difficulty I had with other stud finders). Definitely recommend this.

              Studbuddy
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the StudBuddy and it came at the most perfect time. My daughter just moved into her new home and needed everything hung up from pictures to bedroom shelves to bathroom vanities. The Studbuddy hangs on the wall handsfree when a stud is located, I loved that it didn't require batteries or leave marks on her walls. We even got to use it in the Garage to assist in hanging up their bicycles. I highly recommended ever household to have a Studbuddy. I know I will buying a few more for my family members.

                Perfect stud finder!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this a few weeks ago and am very glad that I did. It uses a magnet to find studs in all drywall and also detect nails and screws in wood and metal studs. I think this is the perfect tool to have in any household and would definitely recommend.

                  Love this studfinder!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I can't say enough good things about The StudBuddy! It is such a simple, easy to use product. Slowly move back and forth over your wall, and when the magnets find nails in a stud, it will stick to the wall. It's a perfect tool for hanging pictures, shelving, or anything else on the wall. Everyone I know will be getting one of these from me for Christmas!
