New-Style Stud Detector Easy To Use
The StudPop® has a colorful “popper” that visibly and audibly tells you when the magnet senses a metal fastener up to 1/2 in. deep.
  The $9.95 device is the brainchild of John Blake, an engineer-turned-landlord/handyman, who was frustrated by stud finders on the market.
  “I wanted something that would be super-easy to use on any kind of wall,” he explains. His StudPop works on sheetrock, tile, lath and plaster.
  “Its shape resembles a speaker that radiates sound. On sheetrock it makes a loud thud as soon as it finds a nail or screw,” he says. “When you see the popper stand up straight, that means that the magnet has detected a screw or nail that holds the wall board to the stud.”
  Functional, yet fun in an assortment of bright colors, the StudPop has attracted media attention and will be featured on the DIY television network this fall.
  Made with ABS polymers, they’re virtually unbreakable. They attach easily to your toolbox - or refrigerator. Or better yet, Blake suggests, just stick it on a wall and let your guests guess what it is.
  Currently sold on Amazon, in 2015 the StudPop will be available in hardware stores. Blake welcomes inquiries from distributors.
