SOURCE: I have a Stanley stud

The 77-110 does not detect electrical wiring. The model 77-720 model does detect electrical wiring but not the 77-110. You must first place the stud finder against the wall, press the button and wait for the light and audio signal to stop. Once this happens the unit is calibrated and while still holding the button down, you then move it across the wall to find the studs. Problem is that this unit is very unreliable and does not work as advertised most of the time. It has a lifetime warranty so my advice is to take it back and get a refund if possible. I have tried many stud finders an most are not reliable and cannot be depended on 100% of the time and this Stanley is one of the worst. The best inexpensive stud finder I have found is the Gardner Bender stud seeker at around $12.

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.

How do i callibrate a draper 63401 detector.regard.


I have never met a stud finder that needed calibration. They should auto calibrate when you begin to search for a stud. Recalibrating is starting the search again. Start in a different location on the wall to get a different calibration. This particular stud finder has bad reports on amazon.

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 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
