Now I can safely nail to hold my modular closet system. I have 3 kinds of stud finders and had hard time to get the reading. With this, first I located the place where the red (mine is red) ball stood up and then used the old kind of stud finder locate the place where I could nail along the vertical between the places where it popped up. It reduced the effort (tiredness of arm) of finding the stud.
Simple - and Fun!

Have used this a couple of times and it seems to work. Very good if there is metal in the studs.
not effective on wooden studs

This magnetic device detects paramagnetic materials, such as steel screws and nails, It does not directly detect wood, which is what most wall studs are made of. It can theoretically detect the nails and screws used to hold your wall to the studs, if you're methodical and lucky. I tried being methodical, but I'm not lucky. I returned this purchase.
EXCELLENT tool!! Really works!!

Magnetic Stud Finder

Hanging a frame, mirror, or shelf is easier with a Made in the USA magnetic stud finder that doesn’t need batteries or calibration to do the job. Slide it along the wall and the indicator will pop up and click when its magnet finds metal fasteners on a stud—up to half an inch deep in the wall.


Maker John Blake created StudPoP magnetic stud finders after he found the (many) electronic versions he tried to be lacking.

John noticed electronic stud finders were often inaccurate, so his simplified tools don’t need batteries or calibration to work. Just run one along a wall, and the indicator will pop up and click. Integrated magnets do a better job locating studs than electronic ones that can struggle with thicker walls found in older homes. StudPoP can detect a metal fastener in a stud through a wall up to half an inch deep. Now hanging things like a mirror, picture frame, or shelves is easier, in any type of space. more Their Story
