I read the reviews which were pretty damming. So I thought if a product was that bad Stanley wouldn’t sell it. So I went to the website and watched a video on how to use it and common mistakes. I’m happy to say my stud finder works perfectly.
There were no instructions on how to use it with the packaging. There was an instruction to visit the website for the user manual. I sent 20 minutes looking for a user manual with no luck. Not even a message to say there wasn’t one. Only links to YouTube videos that use data. Fortunately I had data and was able to watch it n found it very helpful. But would have been very upset if I didn’t and couldn’t.
