How it’s made

The StudPoP® is NOT like the other magnetic stud finders on the market!  They are just a magnet inside a piece of plastic…

…but the StudPoP® is very different.

That’s why we patented it.

It is the world’s first moving magnet stud finder that is guaranteed to find studs in any kind of house…in any kind of wall or ceiling.  It is 100% made in the USA.

Unlike all the other magnetic stud finders, the studpop® doesn’t depend on you to “feel” the magnet tugging on a nail or screw.  The StudPoP’s “popper” takes care of that for you.

When it detects a metal fastener in the wall…

…the StudPoP® indicates this when its popper points straight out.

It’s so simple.  It’s so foolproof.

It’s so much fun!

The StudPoP® is sensitive enough to find fasteners that can be up to 1/2 deep!

This means that you can use it to easily find studs in virtually any type of home.  Works on plaster, sheetrock, tile and lath.

It even works on textured walls including stucco!

No batteries. No guess work. No mistakes. No #$%&#!

Made in the USA.  Patent Pending.


It’s been quite a journey…

from that day in February 2008 when I decided to “roll my own” stud finder.  Back then I hardly knew anything about magnets–never mind what was involved in taking an idea for an invention and turning it into an actual product.  Sure, I had designed stuff before, but it was always to benefit the company that I was working for at the time.

Make no mistake…

there have been a lot of “dues paid” over the past 6 years to get to the point that I’m at now.  It’s the kind of stuff that no one can teach you ahead of time.  Call it the “school of hard-knocks” or “baptism by fire”, whatever it is, having gone through it makes me appreciate—no, it makes me “proud” to have persevered through all of the ups and downs.  I owe so much to the people that have stood by me through it all–most notably my wife Chris–for letting me make marks all over her precious walls : )  Thank goodness for the magic eraser.  And to the other love of my life, “Aunty El”, I say thanks for all the encouragement over the past 5 years.

There’s so much more to this story, but for now, here’s a little behind the scenes look at “StudPoP—making it in the USA”.
