Highly recommended

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best. After having all the trouble others have reported with electronic locators, I chose the easy way. It works and fun to use to find studs. Fun to use!

Works Great on Lath and Plaster

Bought this stud finder so I can put up a TV wall mount in my living room. The main part of my house is over 100 years old and modern electronic stud finders are basically worthless on lath and plaster construction. They get all sorts of false positives due to the thickness of the plaster and the wooden laths behind it. With this handy little device, I found the stud within 30 seconds of opening the package and was able to confirm it wasn't just an errant piece of metal in the wall by moving vertically and seeing a pop every 3-4 inches where the laths are nailed to the stud. The Studpop is made from a very sturdy plastic and the compact design makes it easy to drop into your pocket while you're working and it doesn't take up much space in your toolbox/shelf when you're done using it. This is going to be very helpful with the renovations we're planning.

This thing is awesome!

I have plaster and lath and couldn't use a regular stud finder. This thing works amazing and can find even the tiniest nail. I was able to map out sections of the wall where i wanted to mount stuff and use this device to anchor in. It's still not exact but it sure helped more than I thought it would

This works on even thick plaster walls.

I have tried everything. to find the studs in my plaster walls. This worked! I used small pieces of painters tape to mark where I would find the studs. After covering several square feet of plaster wall, I could see the pattern emerge over where the studs were located. For the 1st time in the 15 years we have lived at this house, I can hang things on my walls!

This little guy really works!

I have been forever buying the latest and greatest electronic stud finder, hoping to find one that I can trust. Some find the edge, some the center, but as long as sheet-rock is attached with screws or nails that are made of metal that is attracted to a magnet, this simple device works very well. No batteries to question, no switches to flip. Hot Dog!!

Great product

It was consistent. I found it very easy to use and it was accurate. No more missing studs from a battery operated stud finder. Would recommend!

Love this stud finder. Works perfectly and leaves no doubt that you've found the stud. Especially excellent in old homes!

Great Invention!

Our home was built in 1925 and my mom mounted a 50” TV on a lath and plaster wall. Her expensive stud finders were useless, but Studpop found every nail where the slats were attached to the studs and she was able to easily determine the center of the studs by marking every one (about 2-3” apart vertically) and drilling in the center of the markings.

The speed alone is worth it

I've been using digital stud finders for years and just happened to buy this one on a whim. Mostly b/c my stud finders have been giving me a lot of false positives. At any rate, I used blue tape and this thing to map out an entire wall I'm hanging shelves on within 10 mins. The time savings alone make this thing worth the purchase. Don't sleep!

A must for commercial craftsmen

This is a very simple magnetic stud finder. It will find the nails in drywall to ultimately tell you where stud probably is. We use it for our commercial work, as stud are metal. I have several. Only one to buy for commercial guys.

Very easy to use! Works perfect

This is the best stud finder that is so low tech, but works better than any others I have used. I have plaster and lathe walls and an electronic stud finder is so hit, or miss. The Studpop works every time!

Best tool to have

Holy crud these things are a life saver. I have had overhead racks to put in my garage for years but I could not find the studs with a traditional stud finder. These things are fantastic and made it easy for my husband and I to find the studs and get the racks hung up. I have used them for other projects and highly recommend them.

This changed my life

I own a home built in 1920. It has been a constant struggle to redecorate and remodel when you cant find studs through plaster and lath walls. This simple product has LITERALLY CHANGED MY LIFE. It is SO simple I am borderline angry I have lived without it so long. Just move it horizontally along your walls and it will catch so easily on the nail heads in your lath and studs. SO LONG drilling every 1/2 inch to find my improperly spaced wall studs. I cant give this item enough stars. Do yourself a favor and purchase one.

Stud finder

Pretty effective. Works on my plaster walls. Much better than an electronic stud finder

I also bought CH Hanson 03040 Magnetic Stud Finder which was a solid product, but on my rough, irregular plaster & lath walls the magnet would only very rarely stick and would more frequently just be "pulled" with an unconvincing level of force to indicate the presence of a nail. In contrast the Studpop "popped" up and down the wall. The lightweight "popper" meant that there was no guesswork for where there was a nail.

Flawless and great value stud finder!

I Was skeptical before buying but it works flawlessly! Even worked through the plaster wall. I’ll use this any day over the electronic stud finders!

Must have for professional carpenters

Must have for professional carpenters. I do remodel and cabinetry work and my colleagues are always surprised at how I can always find the studs, furring strips, anything strong enough to secure to on the first try.

Exactly what I needed!

I purchased an indoor swing for our nursery and had so much trouble finding a stud through our popcorn ceiling. This worked perfectly! Had it up in five minutes! I was about to give up on the whole project, so glad I decided to watch a few YouTube videos.

It worked better than I would have expected (perfectly)

I have an old house with lathe and plaster and I had read that this was a good way of finding studs based on magnetically finding the nails used to secure the lathe. I thought it was a cool idea but thought I would still be hunting around a lot. I got it this morning, and it just worked. Its smaller than I expected. I thought it would be the size of a puck, but it is pretty small. I glided it across the wall and the stick in the middle snapped up each time I passed over a stud without having to hunt for it. I was really surprised also that it didn't detect the metal air ducts that go between almost each stud in the wall I was testing on. For me that was what I needed. Just be aware that it won't help you avoid ducts, though if you are nailing into studs, then not to worry. I'd highly recommend it for anyone with an old house.

Great product

I can’t believe I lived without this. Everyone should have one! Makes hanging thanks ten times easier

Keep it simple stupid.

Best stud finder there is.

Awesome stud finder

This stud finder is amazing and so easy to use. My house has plaster walls, so my traditional electronic stud finder was essentially worthless in finding studs. I then tried using a magnet tied to string, but that was far from accurate and the magnets I had on hand were not strong enough. This stud finder, however, is awesome. It's very obvious when you've located a stud, and it finds them with ease. Highly recommend for both plaster and drywall.
