This security wand is a very sensitive portable hand held metal detector for use in venues such as airports, stadiums, nightclubs, warehouses or schools when searching for weapons or other metal objects concealed about the person, or in baggage & parcels etc. Upon the detection of metal, the wand emits an audio & visual indication. The volume & 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 approx. 18hrs use.

It may be illegal to use a metal detector in some Countries or States please check with you local government department before using this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant does what it says. Very easy to use. Would definately recommend to others
