The Zircon Triscanner® Pro Studfinder (hereinafter, probably just called a "Triscanner® Pro studfinder" or simply "studfinder") is a handy gadget for you contractors, homebuilders, and home remodelers that allows you to easily locate studs behind walls and above ceilings.
This studfinder is three sensors in one tool with rugged ergonomic rubberized grip.
Stud Scan Mode:
The TriScanner® Pro studfinder finds the edges of studs and joists up to 3/4 inches (19 mm) deep in normal mode.
Stud DeepScan® Mode:
In Zircon's patented DeepScan® mode, the TriScanner® Pro studfinder can find studs up to 1 1/2 inches (38 mm) deep behind drywall, paneling, or plywood.
Finds copper and other non-ferrous metal up to 1 1/2 inches (38 mm) deep. Finds ferrous metal such as rebar in concrete up to 3 inches (76 mm) deep.
Continuously detects hot unshielded AC wiring—an important safety feature.

To change the battery (and yes, it really is a "battery"; not just a "cell"), turn the unit upside-down (so that its upper surface with the LEDs on it faces the floor). Near its bottom, you'll see a battery door held on with a clip. Pull the clip toward you (rather than pushing it in which is the usual method here) until the edge of the battery door lifts slightly.
Using a fingernail, lift up some more on the battery door and lift away. Take it to that unfinished basement, and run a belt sander over it until smoke is generated...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.
Remove the used 9 volt battery from the compartment, unclip it from the battery snap, and dispose of or recycle it as you see fit.
Snap a new 9 volt tranasistor radio battery onto the snap, orienting it so that its smaller terminal (+) fits into the larger terminal on the snap, and vice versa. Place it into the compartment.
Take the battery door, and orient it so that the two plastic tits on one edge fit into the receptacles for them on the studfinder's body, and then wing it down until it snaps into place.
Done with that, fun yeah!!!
Aren't you glad that you didn't sand the living tweedle out of that battery door now?

Test unit belongs to my stepmother; I merely borrowed it on 12-05-11 (or "05 Dec. 2011" or even "Dec. 05, Twenty Double Sticks" if you prefer) for a short period for testing purposes. Therefore, that dreadful "" icon will be appended to its listings on this website at once, denoting the fact that I no longer have it at my disposal for future comparisons or analyses.
