The StudBuddy® Story

Having spent the last 40 years as a framer, carpenter, builder, designer and general contractor, I felt that there must be a simpler and more accurate way of locating framing studs behind drywall. I was frustrated with using electronic stud finders, the “tapping” method or drilling multiple holes to locate studs.

Several years ago, while playing with strong neodymium magnets, I suddenly saw the ease of locating drywall nails and screws, and therefore, stud location. I set out to patent and design a simple device that would locate studs and stick to the wall for visual reference. From this, The StudBuddy was created.
