About this product


  • The perfect companion to any metal detector
  • Pinpoint the location of your potential find
  • Save time by not digging over large areas

Product overview

• The perfect companion to any metal detector
• Pinpoint the location of your potential find
• Save time by not digging over large areas
• Adjustable sensitivity control
• Indication via buzzer, LED and vibration alerts
• Small and lightweight, easy to carry with you other detecting accessories

This instrument is designed to assist the detectorist in pinpointing the area of the find without needed to dig up lots of earth. It should help save you time and frustration and reduce the impact of the environment from over digging.

The detector is ideally used when your main detector has given the likely area, the needle probe design means you can gently insert into the ground and gently move until the buzzer is activated. There is a sensitivity adjustment built in, but in conjunction of your main detector's discrimination settings it should be possible to locate the find.

The probe is suited to loose, dry materials and should not be pushed into hard, compact materials to avoid breaking the probe

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just bought this pinpointer and not sure about the other reviews but its working OK with me......It detects objects within a good distance before touching ...... Very handy tool this great for sand detecting after the Main detector finds the target!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to operate and it works I think some reviewers have missed the point of these tools - it's only supposed to detect close objects. Depending on the metal it works at about 1 - 1.5cm. Use your main detector to identify the area then use this to "Pinpoint" the item. When I tested mine it registered small items of gold, aluminium, brass and steel Build quality is ok and prods through grass and sand well enough , probably best suited to occasional user or someone trying the hobby without investing lots of money for more expensive kit. That said, I don't see any reason that it won't last as long as it's not abused e.g trying to force the probe into hard ground.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The vibration unit in the device was rattling around inside when I opened it and I had to fix it back into place myself. I did a test on various coins and it could only detect them if they actually touched the tip. Even then it often didn't detect them at all. It is very poorly made too. Returned to store for a refund. To give you an idea as to ow bad this product is, several members of a detecting forum I am a member of bought these. All but one returned them. The one that didn't took it apart to see if he could improve it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bad Just bought this item and sorry to say it was terrible had to be touching the metal to work and even then it hardly made a sound not worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor, with misleading description On the box it says: "The metal detector pinpointer has a super bright LED, making it easier to pinpoint your treasure in low light level conditions." This clearly suggests some form of torch function, but what you get is a very ordinary red LED that comes on when something is detected and which is hidden behind a number of small holes in the plastic case, making it hard to see at all. The box continues: "The in built vibration function is perfect when wearing headphones as it allows you to feel when your device detects metal." The device doesn't have a vibration function as would be recognised by anyone who owns a mobile phone. It does have an old-fashioned electro-mechanical buzzer that generates a just-detectable vibration (along with a sound that can't be muted). It should also be said that the detection range is virtually zero, and with the sensitivity set to anything other than maximum it won't detect even large objects. Not up to your usual standard, Maplin.
