Franklin Sensors Prosensor 710
Franklin Sensors’ Prosensor 710 is the most popular home stud finder on the market. It is extremely accurate, quick, and easy to use. No sliding required. Simply place the tool on the wall and press a button. The light display along the top edge of the unit lets you see the entire stud from edge to edge, so it takes any guess work out of the stud finding job. Franklin Sensors has recently come out with a newer model, the Prosensor 710+ that incorporates a small level into the handle of the unit, but the stud finder in both models is still the same.
