SuperScan​® K3 

The SuperScan​® K3 advanced wall scanner with Target Control​® (TC​™) Level 1 technology, works like no other stud finder on the market. With multiple sensors streaming data, combined with sophisticated intelligence controlling results, the SuperScan​® K3 provides greatly enhanced performance and safety. This scanner is so revolutionary that Popular Mechanics designated it as the 2021 Tool Awards Winner for Best Wall Scanner.

What makes TC​™ so unique, you ask? TC​™ mode is tuned for wood studs while filtering out dangerous, metallic false positive objects such as plumbing, conduit, straps, brackets, or ducts that are hiding behind the walls so mounting that shelf or garage organization system can be completed with confidence and ease. The ColorTrip​® display illuminates pale blue to designate TC​™ mode and indicates the center, edges, and direction of wood studs. Use this mode to further identify clean, “safe-to-drill” zones. 

And it doesn’t end there. The SuperScan​® K3 also has three other helpful modes, StudScan, DeepScan​®, and Metal Scan, accessed via a 3-mode switch, making it the ideal gift for the “Super” hero in your life. Check out this video to learn more.

The SuperScan​® K3 retails for $80.99 sold exclusively at shop.zircon.com

MetalliScanner​® m40

For DIYers in older homes, finding studs behind lath and plaster walls, paneling, and tile can be challenging—but not for the MetalliScanner​® m40 metal detector. Wide Scan detects ferrous (magnetic) metal up to 4 in. (10 cm) deep and non-ferrous metal up to 2 in. (5 cm) deep. PinPoint Scan locates the screws and nails that attach paneling to the studs. This detector even works through concrete and is ideal for locating plumbing, duct work, rebar, nails, and screws in walls, floors, and ceilings. It is also great for finding nails/screws in reclaimed lumber, making this tool equally perfect for DIYers, craftsman, and professionals of all levels.

StudSensor​™ HD55

Need to hang a bookshelf, heavy mirror, or new cabinets? Don’t trust your ear by knocking on the wall. Finding studs and joists is easy, and accurate, with the StudSensor​™ HD55 stud finder. The patented pivot pinch grip provides a comfortable and secure hold in either hand and at any angle. With two scan modes, StudScan locates the edges of wood or metal studs through one layer of drywall up to 3/4 in. (19 mm) deep and DeepScan​® mode doubles the scanning depth to scan through multi-layers up to 1 ½ in. (38 mm) deep. An enhanced LCD display with Target Spotlight illuminates on-screen when each edge of a stud is detected. As an added benefit, the WireWarning​® detection indicates the presence of live, unshielded AC electrical wiring while scanning. Get more details on this stud finder here.

Leak Alert​™ WiFi

Summertime often means vacation travel and leaving your home unattended for extended periods of time. With the Leak Alert​™ WiFi, you can travel with the peace of mind that if a leak occurs, you – and whoever you designate – will know early. 

This electronic smart water detector is a self-contained battery-powered unit that connects to your Wi-Fi and can send alerts to up to five email addresses when it comes in direct contact with water. The set-up is easy – all you need is a smartphone and Wi-Fi connection; no additional hub or wiring is required and best of all, no subscription is required. The unit also sounds a loud (105 dB) alarm and flashes red LED lights to alert you when you are home. In the event of a flood, the detector will float and continue to sound an alarm until the battery is depleted. Simply place the Leak Alert​™ WiFi unit(s) next to water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators, toilets, and sump pumps. Even place them under sinks, fish tanks, and in the basement – wherever the risk of leaking exists. Click on this Leak Alert​™ WiFi link for more details and to see a video demonstration.
