Essential Info

The Franklin Sensors ProSensor 710 is a professional-grade stud detector that is accurate, faster, and less error prone than other stud finders on the market. Sensing the wall in thirteen locations simultaneously, the stud detector illuminates the display elements in front of a stud. It identifies the width of hidden objects immediately, and can identify the position of multiple objects simultaneously. It has a far greater sensor pad surface area than conventional stud detectors to accurately identify objects through many difficult architectural features. Finding studs behind thick walls, wall and ceiling textures, uneven plaster thickness, uneven paint, and difficult wallpaper causes other sensors to fail, but it is no problem for the ProSensor 710. This product requires two AA batteries for operation (included).

    Ability to Detect 2 Objects Simultaneously
    Studs in a typical home are 16 inches apart, however, there are many instances where standard 16 inch stud spacing doesn't happen. This occurs frequently around doors, near windows, at corners, or when extra support is needed, such as below a stairway. Around these structural features it can be difficult to determine what studs are behind sheetrock if you are using a conventional electronic stud finder. The ProSensor 710 makes it easy to determine what is behind the sheetrock, even if there are multiple objects of different sizes and widths. The LEDs on the ProSensor 710 illuminate in front of all hidden objects, making identification easy.

    Deep scanning
    Most homes are built with sheetrock that is between 3/8 inches thick and 5/8 inches thick, and most stud finders will operate with these standard sheetrock thicknesses. However more and more homes are being built with two layers of sheetrock in select rooms. The second layer of sheetrock may be used, for example, to keep a bedroom quieter, or to line the walls of a theatre room. The ProSensor 710 has the best performance of any stud finder through thick surfaces and it has the best deep scanning capabilities of any available stud finder.

    Only used it on locating a thin board. Three lights came on making it difficult to determine the actual board however locating a 2x4 should be simple.
    TRINH -- malden, MA   12/23/2013
    Great tool. Make it so easy to find stud and stud size. Should have bought it long time ago.
    STEVEN -- northampton, MA   10/14/2013
    The best stud finder I have ever used. I have five and none compare.
    agpb -- monterey, California   9/28/2013
    Hands down best stud finder I've ever owned. I actually tossed a couple of old Zircons because this one works so well.
    JOYCE -- florissant, MO   7/8/2013
    Love it
    LES -- monroe, NY   6/20/2013
    Best stud finder I ever owned.
    Franklin 2013 Review -- columbus, OH   6/2/2013
    After receiving my Franklin stud finder through a product evaluation program, I immediately tested it on known studs in a bathroom I've been renovating. It was able to pick up all the studs I looked for on the first try with no finagling. It even picked up the wood brace behind a drywall patch a couple of inches from a stud both registered simultaneously as well as a stud behind 1/2 Hardie board with vapor membrane stud was shown as larger than actual, but center was accurate...I did not expect it to register behind such a dense concrete board. This stud finder is very easy to use...I would even recommend it to my sister, mother, and grandmother. I love that it is constantly scanning/calibrating, so I can push the button before I get to the wall without throwing off the calibration. I can also lift off the wall and move without it shutting off. With my old stud finder, I would have to turn it on and auto calibrate between studs and sweep it over where I thought a stud should be. This was often an unreliable process that would yield a slightly different stud center on each successive pass. It would also error out if I lifted it from the wall. This is by far the best stud finder I've ever used...I no longer have to knock on the wall to determine a good place to calibrate the stud finder. For the first real test, I used this to detect studs behind walls to nail in baseboard. This was perfect for the task! I was able to sweep the detector quickly over the wall with one hand holding in place to temporarily mark the stud via the red lights while using my finish air nailer with the other hand to secure the baseboard to the wall. I will be hanging towel bars tonight, and I expect similar results. This is an awesome stud finder, but that doesn't mean it can't be better my engineer's mentality! Here are some suggestions I have for this stud finder: 1 allow this stud finder to detect electric behind a wall...I will still have to keep my old stud finder around for that maybe you could add a second row of lights for electric or change the existing LED color in location of electric; 2 this multi-sensor system seems to get tripped up by metal behind a wall ie: will not detect stud when drywall corner guard is in range...I tricked it by turning it on a diagonal, which worked; 3 stud finder could not detect floor joists from above to secure squeaking floors I tried to scan through medium pill carpet/pad/sheeting...maybe a deep scan mode could be added; 4 add feedback that this unit is in deed on...there is no feedback if there is no stud in initial reaction is to push the button harder thinking I hadn't completed the full button stroke. Bottom line: I think you have one of the best consumer stud finders on the market which I would recommend to anybody, but I think if you consider some of these suggestions you will have the absolute king of stud finders that no competition will be able to touch for performance and multi-taski

    Although I haven't used this device in an actual project, I tested it on walls that caused problems with other stud finders, and the ProSensor worked perfectly and quickly. It doesn't need to be "calibrated" every time it is used, and it allows you to quickly and accurately mark the center of the stud without going back and forth over an area of the wall. A definite winner!
    THOMAS -- new windsor, NY   5/10/2013
    Absolutely the most awesome stud finder I have ever used.
    REJEAN -- cambridge, ON   4/30/2013
    ROBERT -- cranston, RI   4/29/2013
    It's not as accurate as I had hoped. Tried new batteries twice but that didn't help.
    VINCENT -- saint joseph, MI   4/28/2013
    good product and i love it
    THEODORE E. -- duanesburg, NY   3/14/2013
    this is by far the best stud finder I have used. Highly recommend.
    WADE -- kamiah, ID   3/8/2013
    Works very good. I have not tried it on the old plaster house yet but will soon.
    PAUL -- north haven, CT   2/18/2013
    Great product, far exceeds previous ones I own.
    DAVID -- silverhill, AL   2/16/2013
    Stud finder is awesome! So simple to use. Wish I had bought one before my wife left 20 holes in the wall trying to hang pictures
    MARIANO -- palmetto bay, FL   2/15/2013
    Met and exceeded all expectations.Simple to use and superior to any stud finder I have used before.
    Toolman39 -- chicago, IL   2/7/2013
    I just finished installing crown molding in an entire house and probably had to find about 50 studs. The ProSensor 710 didn't miss once. It is very fast, very easy, and very accurate. It is well worth the price! I am very happy with this purchase.
    BRIAN -- huntington, NY   9/27/2012
    This is by far the best stud sensor ever produced, and it appears that Smarthome is the only place you can purchase it. It shipped quickly and was packaged well. In addition to this, I purchased an "Otter Box" at Amazon.(You can find the interior demention specs at, but the best price is either Amazon or Ebay) This box is overkill, but I never have to worry about anything ever happening to my stud finder, even if I submerge it in 100 feet of water!
    JOSEPH -- toronto, ON   8/28/2012
    After much hype on the reviews I bought this expecting a good stud finder. This item performed poorly compared to my other two zircon studfinders (e51) and an older model. I am a contractor and would not recommend it.
