Product Overview

  • Outfitted with rubber handles for nonslip grip
  • Equipped with enhanced LCD display with Target Spotlight
  • Translucent base allows accurate marking of stud edge
The Zircon StudSensor HD55 detects the edges of studs in walls up to 1-1/2 in. deep, allowing you to identify the ideal weight-bearing midpoint for anchoring heavy wall-mounted objects. Just slide the battery-operated instrument along a wall and the LCD display's Target Spotlight will alert you to the presence of a stud edge. The handy SpotLite Pointer on top of the device lets you precisely mark the wall with a pencil courtesy of an illuminated V-shaped groove. Slide it farther along to find the other stud edge, split the difference, and you've located the stud center.
  • Enhanced LCD display with target spotlight indicates approaching stud edge and illuminates when stud edge is detected
  • WireWarning detection indicates the presence of live, unshielded AC electrical wiring up to 2 in. (51 mm) deep
  • Patented over-the-stud indication alerts the user to start the scan in a new location if scanning begins over a stud
  • SpotLite pointer shines an arrow-shaped light on the wall to clearly indicate the edge of the stud
  • StudScan mode locates the edges of wood or metal studs up to 3/4 in. (19 mm) deep
  • DeepScan mode doubles the scanning depth to 1-1/2 in. (38 mm) deep
  • Requires 9-Volt battery (sold separately)
  • Great solution for all your detection need

does it work through plaster

Will this work on wood panel walls(very thin panels)

Asked by: Chew
It should, provided the wood panel is thin enough. Stud detectors measure the "density" of a wall. They do not "detect wood".

will it find studs through bath tile

will it find studs through bath tile
Asked by: andy
Yes. I just used it to install a shower grab bar and it found the studs with no problem. I'd still measure, tap and look for other indicators before you start drilling, but this was quite helpful.

StudSensor HD55 Stud Finder is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 732.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stud Sensor to Buy! I bought this stud sensor last week to replace my 30 year old Stanley that was rarely useful. I heard that the technology was supposed to have improved immensely and it sure has! Had no problem going through gyproc with a thick coat of textured plaster over it! Was considering the other models when I bought this one but the cheaper ones didn't have the display, the next one up only added a stud centering option to locate the center instead of the edge, but I'm happier finding the 2 edges of the stud and then calculating the center on my own (then I'm SURE I'm sinking my screw in the center) ... The expensive models add options of tracing live wires and finding pipes in the walls, but this one does all I need it for at 1/3 the price ... and they all use the same technology, so none will sense better then the other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great option for the DIYer This stud finder is about the middle of the road for stud finders in my opinion. It doesnt have the advanced features, but I only used it less than 5 times a year. It has both standard depth and deep scan options for finding studs under most materials. It has live wire detction that will warn you that live electrical wires are in the area your scanning. The best feature is the illuminated arrow that displays of the wall when a stud is found. This makes it very easy to mark your studs. PROS: All features that are needed for a DIYer. CONS: The pads on the back only work on smooth surfaces, otherwise get caught up a lot

When marked and a penetration was performed the actual edge of the stud was 1 1/2" away from where the stud sensor indicated. The battery was new and the tool was used according to instruction. I have used other stud sensors that were much more accurate than this sensor. To be fair I tried the same sequence on 3 or 4 separate attempts to locate a stud in different areas and it ended with the same result. I returned the tool for a refund.

I bought it to help me find where to install an in wall dog door. I found the studs, marked them, and after going through the drywall, they where precisely where the hd55 said they would be. anyway, on a whim, I tried the deep scan before I cut and got some strange readings. it ended up being a furring strip used to brace up the siding, but it was where the hd55 said it would be

Product not as accurate as I thought off 3/4 inch when cut into sheet rock based on marking from tone and lights. Had to adjust opening after getting hole started. After that I adjusted over to allow for difference. Used to find ceiling studs to install lights as pictured. had pipes and HVAC didn't catch with product. Overall was able to muddle through the issue.

It sucked every place it showed a stud there wasn't I went back to a $1.00 little plastic tool magnet in it .It takes a little longer to find a stud but every place it shows a stud there is one and 16 inches down the wall there was a stud .Maybe the one I goy was broke I don't know I didn't exchange it for a new one I'll stick to my $1.00 always right tool.

I had to hang a 60" 75 pound TV. Worked flawless. Read directions. There were notifications that indicated there may be wiring besides just the stud. I am in a newly built home. We are hanging a lot of pieces and following the directions this has been the best stud and wiring tool I have ever used.
