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

Floureon 3in1 stud finder instructions


Put it on the wall, turn the sensitivity know until it beeps, turn it back a fraction until the beep stops. Run the device across the wall. If it does'nt beep, you were on a stud the first time!

Stanley stud finder AC sensor continually beeps on 10mm plasterboard wall


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.

Stanley instructions


Try using a magnet instead. Move the magnet back and forth against the wall, slowly... until it sticks to one of the ferrous screws hidden in the sheetrock. These hidden screws are holding the wall board/sheetrock onto a stud.
Magnets! Free stud finder! and no batteries to replace!

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..

Red light would not go out and beep would not stop when moving finder across wall.


I had this problem as well. The solution was to replace the 9 volt battery that it runs on. The beep was much louder and it calibrated correctly. Apparently the old battery was enough to make the beeping sound but not strong enough to emit the energy required to penetrate the drywall.

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 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.
