Often in everyday life, there are situations when a wall in the apartment you need to hang something. It can be either a new shelf, support for a TV or a large heavy mirror. To securely fix the object on the wall, it is necessary to install the fastener precisely in place of the wall studs. Otherwise, a simple drywall does not withstand the weight of the object, and it will fall off.
And the question arises - how can you find the studs that are inside the wall? To solve this problem was invented a special tool called a stud finder or stud locator. Depending on the model, this tool can determine the stud in the wall, which is made of wood or metal. The full review you can read on the protoolshub.com, but here I want to tell you about the most popular model.
One of the most popular is the Black & Decker BDL190S BullsEye Auto-Leveling Interior Line Laser with Stud Sensor. Here's what the producer writes about his tool: The Black & Decker BDL190S BullsEye Auto-leveling Interior Line Laser and Stud Sensor Combination Tool is an ideal tool for hanging pictures, detecting wood and metal studs, locating live A/C wires, and installing decorative items.

Other features include a stud sensor to detect wood, metal, studs, and live A/C wires and an easy to read LCD display.

Very convenient is the presence of an integrated laser level, which will allow you to hang a picture perfectly accurately without much effort.
It is very easy to use this tool. It is necessary to carry out smooth movements along the wall, and the stud sensor will let know where the stud is. You just need to make a mark on the wall and install the fasteners for the object you want to hang.
