20 Most Recent Stanley 77-720 Stud Sensor 200 Questions & Answers


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..

Without knowing what room you are using it in it could be a underlayment of wire mesh that you are reading. If it is an older home this was used often as a backing for plaster instead of lath.Thank you.

Hold the stud sensor against the wall where the wall sounds hollow (no stud at this location). Hold the button down while you slide the unit horizontally. When it moves over a stud, it will give you a solid beep and the display will show you a solid vertical line. If it starts beeping intermittently, you may have started over a stud which will cause an error.
Do not lift the sensor off the wall when you slide it as this will also cause an error.

Most stud finders have a sensitivity adjustment that should be carefully adjusted per instruction manual before use.
Failure to do this results in erroneous indications.

If you have adjusted exactly per the instructions with the same result the unit is probably faulty.

Yes. Unless one was provided the standard is to just use an extension cord.
