Home Depot nailed it with this deal!
This Magnetic Stud Finder uses powerful magnets to locate metal and wood studs inside walls. And because it uses magnets, batteries are not required. It also includes a rotating level for vertical and horizontal marking.
I recently purchased the stud finder due to the low price and magnetic feature. I used it recently when hanging a bathroom cabinet and it was very helpful in that it just stuck to the stud so I knew where to screw in the cabinet.
When I first ordered the product I thought it would somehow stick anywhere on a stud by somehow using the magnetic field between nails. The way it actually works is that it only sticks directly on a nail that’s in a stud (typically a drywall nail). This makes sense once you think about the technology and doesn’t take away from its usefulness.
You just have to be patient moving the stud finder up and down and side to side until you find a nail. Once you find one nail you can just move the stud finder up and down the stud until you find a nail close to where you need to mark the stud location. Of course, if you have metal studs it will stick anywhere.
