I am in for one! I have a few extra holes in the wall from mounting our TV...
I can relate. I'm an old geezer and used the 'knock on wall, hear solid sound, drill here' technique. I forgot that I am hard of hearing; I drilled about six fruitless holes.
Got in the car, went to the hardware store, got a stud finder, and now have utter confidence that my TV mount is securely mounted in the middle of the stud.
GREAT investment and a huge advance from the magnetic type from back in the dark ages... like the one in this thread.
I wouldn't buy one of these; I'd go for the one that measures density... like the one at the hardware store. CHEAP ENOUGH at Tru-Valu Stores. <$10, for sure.
Finding the NAILS does not guarantee that you are in the MIDDLE of the stud. The one that I got if run from left to right and then right to left gives a perfect 'picture' of where the stud is; split the difference and you have the dead middle.
Think about that.
