Where would I use this metal detector?
This security wand is a very sensitive, portable, handheld metal detector for use in venues such as airports, stadiums, nightclubs, warehouses or schools. It can be used to search for weapons or other metal objects concealed about the person, in baggage or in parcels. Upon the detection of metal, the wand emits an audio and visual indication. The volume and pitch of the audio alert varies with the size of the target. Larger objects, such as a steel ruler for example, will result in a higher tone than a small object like a coin. The wand is powered by 1 x 9V battery (not included - order code: L46AL). A standard alkaline battery will give approximately 18 hours use.

Please note: It may be illegal to use a metal detector in some countries or states. Please check with your local government department or local council before using this device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job Firstly when I received the detector it was missing the screw to hold the battery cover on, bit annoying as it won't hold itself on without it. I needed it straight away so didn't bother returning, just taped it on. I bought this metal detector for work to search around a field and in heavy undergrowth for some metal covered boreholes. It worked a treat for this purpose. Damp undergrowth seems to cause interference making the detector beep weakly but when you find something metal the alert noise is loud and clear.
