SOURCE: How to operate the Stanley Stud Finder

Hi Gene,

  • Place the unit flat against the wall.
  • Press and hold the button.
  • The LED will come on for a second or two then go out.
  • Slowly move the unit laterally until the LEDs come on again.
  • When they top out, that is the beginning of the stud.
  • When they start to go back down, that is the end of the stud.
That's about it..

Best regards
Mike

How to use a stud finder


The stud finder works by picking up density of the product it is pressed and slid on..Turn your stud finder on make sure the ok light is on...then slightly press it against the wall or surface you are working with,,then slowly moved it right or left still against the surface. As the finder starts to detect more density "thickness" it will. Glow or beep depending what type you have..It will get brighter,louder or what ever it signals are while crossing the stud beneath the surface..keep moving until it stops then move back
again until it stops.....mark or note the position where the signal starts then find the middle...2x4's are 1 1/2 inches across...so center should be 3/4 of an inch...good luck..

Battery change on a stud finder


I need to know the brand/model#. My stud finder has a release tab on the underside and it's easy access. Can you snap a picture and repost?

I have plaster walls in an old house the stud finder just keeps beeping how does this thing work?


Your stud finder keeps beeping because old plaster walls have lath boards behind the plaster that are attached to the studs and running horizontally. Try adjusting the sensitivity of the stud finder by placing it on the wall and turning the sensitivity down until it just stops beeping. Then move it back and forth in a wide enough arc to be sure that you have crossed a stud, turning up the sensitivity ever so slightly until you get a tone when you cross a stud. Hope this works out for you.

How to use it


usually you put it up against the wall between studs. Then you press a button and gradually move it left or right to find the studs in the wall.
If you initially have it pressed against the wall at a stud, it won't work right.

How do you know when the strait line laser level and stud finder is on a stud


Hello. The instructions can vary from model to model, but most have a green indicator light that lights up when the unit detects a stud. There is a section in the manual (for most models) that will show/inform of the unit's individual method. Here is a link to the company's product manual support page. Click on your specific model to download the manual.
