Great new device
I have a couple of different stud finders but I still end up tapping the wall with my knuckles and drilling exploratory holes to figure out where things are. This device is nice because it locates metal in the wall whether it is nails or piping. You can do a wide area scan first and then zoom in and do a pinpoint scan. I think this is going to be a very useful addition to my tool set. It is also a nicely designed device that looks good. On the negative side I found the battery cover difficult to get off and also I would prefer it took AA batteries rather than 9V smoke detector type batteries. I have a drawer full of AA’s.

Really easy to operate
The Zircon Metalliscanner M40 Metal Locator tool is a better way to find studs over other devices I've used. When I received the unit found it to be a good size to hold in your hand. It needs a 9-volt battery not included that is stored in the handle. I found it to be easy to use after first going over the instructions and watching the video on the Home Depot product page. There are also more calibrating videos on YouTube. Basically, calibrate it by turning it on and waiting for the ready light to go on next to the search area. Then slowly move it along the wall until the Christmas tree line on the head starts to light up indicating sensitively strength and sounds a tone for maximum strength. There are more steps to hone the metal search, but that's basically it. I expected it not to be that easy, but not with this one. If anything it was super sensitive in finding metal pipes, electrical cables and of course, wall studs. I've used other devices and there is a learning curve to interpret results, this tool is up and running much faster.

        The Zircon M40 metal detector was a good choice to locate the nails in the studs of my plaster wall where I installed a TV mount. Never having used the M40, I wasn't sure how accurate it would be, but it worked well. I do recommend watching one or more videos online. Drilling a small pilot hole is another good idea.

          Struggle with using traditional stud finders on your old plaster walls? Get it. This stinkin’ thing WORKS. I was skeptical and have one wall with a crawl space behind it to test it out, and it was spot on. It’s sensitive and maybe not as convenient as the ones that mark the “left” and “right” sides of studs, but for us plaster residents… it’s a game changer.

            We struggled with finding the metal studs in our new commercial space, but this stud finder worked brilliantly! It helped us locate each stud accurately and we spent a lot less time patching up mistakes after we purchased it.
