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

Can I locate a stud covered by stucco

Asked by dumdum October 12, 2019

Answers

Hello. Zircon does not have a stud sensor that will scan through stucco. The wire mesh used in stucco applications prevents a stud sensor from scanning properly. Thank you.

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.

We're sorry to hear of your experience with your HD55. Under normal conditions it should be a very easy, accurate and versatile scanner to use. 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 studs. We would be happy to trouble shoot this with you, whatever the problem may be. We stand behind our product. Please contact us and we’ll figure it out for you. You can contact our tech support through the Zircon website. Thank you. zircon

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.

Hello Reggie. We're very sorry to hear of your experience with your StudSensor™ HD55. There are enough variables in wall construction (insulation properties, moisture issues, general inconsistencies, etc. etc.) that we would have to do some trouble shooting with you to figure out why your HD55 is not locating studs for you. It’s a really great tool. We’re positive we can help you out. Please contact us through the Zircon website. Thank you. zircon
Does a good job with some annoyances
This finder does a good job with finding studs. The problem is that the red LED indicator is extremely bright it can make reading the screen difficult. The bright red light shines directly into your eyes! There is no way to adjust the contrast on the LCD display, so you need to have ample lighting where you are using this device. I would not purchase this particular model again, so cannot recommend it for this reason.

It works really well, have used it many times since I bought it. It also picks up electrical wires as advertised. Seems to be well built and sturdy.
