Ease of use

Like most stud detector models, the BDL190S can detect studs made of wood and metal. Plus, the BDL190S can find live wires inside the wall. This can be very useful when you want to drill a wall and do not know exactly where the wiring is. After all, if you damage the electrical wires, a short circuit may occur. And if you do not even get electrocuted, you still have to change the wires in the place of damage. So if you do not want this to happen to you, Black & Decker BDL190S will help you.

To fix the device on the wall there are several options. The first is to stud locator into a wall, not a big nail and hang BDL190S on it.
The second – on the case of BDL190S there are special felt strips, and they work as a well-known Velcro.
