Product Overview

The StudSensor HD55 deep-scanning stud finder features an enhanced LCD display, with Target Spotlight, that illuminates on-screen when you've found the edge of a stud. Select from 2 stud scan modes to find the edges of wood and metal studs to securely anchor mirrors, shelves, and cabinets to the wall while also avoiding live AC electrical wiring.
  • StudScan mode locates the edges of wood or metal studs up to 3/4 in. (19 mm) D
  • WireWarning detection indicates the presence of live, unshielded AC electrical wiring up to 2 in. (51 mm) D
  • Zircon recommends the use of a brand new 9-Volt battery (sold separately), check the battery expiration date upon battery installation and replace battery periodically due to the LCD power requirements
  • Enhanced LCD display with target spotlight indicates approaching stud edge and illuminates when stud edge is detected
  • Zircon's patented over-the-stud indication alerts 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
  • Translucent base and illuminated V-marker groove for more accurate marking of stud edge location
  • Great solution for all your detection need

Solid stud finder that gets the job done
After researching different stud finder options, this Zircon HD55 Stud Finder seemed like a good compromise of value and effectiveness. When it starts to detect a stud behind the wall, the bars on the screen will increase in number, ending with a high pitch noise and red light when the edge of the stud is found. Sure enough, after marking the wall and drilling, the stud finder had accurately detected a stud. I've had mixed results with the DeepScan sensor, but the StudScan option works great.

    Easily finds stud
    Ensures you're drilling in the middle of the stud. The arrow projection helps a lot

      This is a good value comes with a level picture hangers and a carpenter pencil. I also like the arrow that points where the stud is located.
      Looks ok, haven’t put it to the test as of yet

      Crap Stud Finder
      This thing doesn't work. Even asked the maintenance man for help using this stud finder. At every indication of a stud, we drilled and found nothing. I now have a ruined wall and no frames hung!

      Hello, We’re sorry to hear of your experience with the HD55 StudSensor. There are tried and true techniques we can help you with that will promote consistent scanning results. Quite often these issues have to do with the environment you’re operating on and knowing why the tool is reacting to density changes that may not be the studs (or objects) you’re looking for or problems with false readings or no readings at all like you described. Regardless of the issue, we would like to do everything possible to resolve the problem for you. Please contact us through the Zircon website. Thank you. zircon

The thickness and material of the wall board are critical factors that must be taken into account when considering the accuracy (to the stud edge) of the scanner.

          Installed my TVs
          At first I was skeptical about buying this product after reading the reviews. But I'm glad I decided to go with it because it made my life easy and simple, was using the technology of the edge to edge stud finder feature in this product. After measuring out my wall and find the center point and then was able to use the Zircon stud finder. It was spot on and I didn't have any issues checking it twice drilling once. I was able to hang both my 86" in our living room and the 60" in the basement. I'm VERY happy with this product and I would definitely recommend it!! I used the "deep scan" feature once and it showed where my electrical wiring was on my toggle switches in the living room. Cool feature so that way we don't ever drill into electrical and get a "shocking" surprise. Overall, I'm happy with this product and highly recommend it.

            Better use as a hammer
            This stud finder should probably just be used as a hammer. It gives tons of false positives and didn’t find a single stud. Just went old school and drilled a bunch of holes until I found one and could measure 16” off to find the rest. Returned this product as you’re better off with nothing.

              $20 for nothing
              So many false positives and just missed studs. See photo for how well it found studs. Had a false positive 6 times in a row. Throwing darts would be about as accurate.

                To Future Buyers, This stud finder did not accomplish its job for the work that needed to be done in our situation. What it did make was an empty hole in our living room wall. We cheaped out on this one since we were also on the verge of buying the Bosch one. There's no doubt that we will return it.
