Our roots as a precision technology company were planted in 1975 when we opened our doors as a manufacturer of innovative LED watches.

In 1980, using our experience in consumer electronics, we debuted the original, revolutionary StudSensor™ stud finder, which placed us on the map as a true innovator in the hand tool and hardware world. Our mission is to provide affordable, accurate, and easy-to-use electronic tools for DIYers and professionals alike.

We are committed to a Higher Form of customer support. Our team of Tool Pro Experts are available to help with projects big or small. They know all about Zircon® tools, have a substantial level of expertise with construction and DIY projects, and will serve you with an ample amount of care. Whatever you’re working on that requires our tools, we can help.

The Zircon Advantage

Zircon Corporation is an American company, established and operating in Northern California since 1975. Our commitment to designing and developing innovative electronic stud finders, metal detectors, and electrical scanners is unmatched. You might not expect a tool company to be headquartered in Silicon Valley. However, take a closer look and you’ll understand why.

Research & Development

With a diverse team of engineers who do everything from industrial design to custom chip design, our focus on developing easy-to-use tools that solve everyday problems is unparalleled. A leader in the industry since 1980, we were the first to introduce new, patented technologies such as Over-the-Stud Indication, DeepScan® Mode, WireWarning® Detection, CenterVision® Technology, ACT™ Auto Correcting Technology, and more.


Any good tool should feel like an extension of your hand. That’s why we put a major emphasis on real world applications when developing our tools. Every curve and angle, from the battery door to the power button, is scrutinized to have ideal ergonomic grip, viewing angle and pivot points. No detail is too small or insignificant for a Zircon tool.


Quality is evident in every phase of our worldwide operations. From assembly and supplier partnerships to inventory and customer service, we pride ourselves on setting the standard in everything we do, so we can deliver you the finest electronic tool available.
