About Zircon

Founded in 1975, Silicon Valley-based Zircon® began as a manufacturer of an inventive line of digital watches and owned, and operated, the Fairchild Channel-F video game division.

Recognizing a need for precision electronic hand tools to assist with every day home improvement projects, Zircon® leapt into traditional hardware lines in 1980. Leveraging our extensive experience in consumer electronics, Zircon developed the StudSensor™, the revolutionary and original, patented electronic stud finder. Then as now, Zircon’s mission is to provide affordable, accurate, and easy-to-use stud, metal, thermal, and electrical scanning and detecting solutions for DIYers and professional contractors alike.

Zircon’s team of Tool Pro Experts provide superior customer service and know the ins and outs about tools, construction, and the challenges that DIYers and professionals face with a diverse list of projects. Rest assured knowing you can reach live, accessible, knowledgeable, honest people. At Zircon, we work with you.

Zircon tools have worldwide appeal and can be found in 30 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Zircon continues to be the only company dedicated solely to electronic hand tools and with a focus on the entire customer experience.
