Campbell, Calif. – October, 2015 —Zircon Corporation, maker of the original electronic stud finder, announces their first through-hole drill guide, the ExitPoint™ XL300. The XL300 is the easiest, fastest, and most cost-effective tool to locate a precise spot without measuring before starting a project.


The ExitPoint™ XL300 accurately detects exit points before drilling or coring and saves time and money by eliminating guesswork, rework, unnecessary holes, and costly broken drill bits. It scans through most types of non-magnetic building materials, such as wood, drywall, gypsum panels, bricks, poured concrete and stucco.
The XL300 features two modes: Normal mode to scan through conventional interior walls up to 4.53 in. (115 mm) thick and DeepScan® mode to scan through materials up to 11.81 in (300 mm) thick.


To use, one would simply affix the transmitter magnet on the spot to be drilled and then scan the vicinity of the other side of the wall with the receiver. When the receiver is near the center of the transmitter, the display will light red, indicating a strong signal.


The timely debut of this inexpensive and highly-sought tool, once again fortifies Zircon’s mission of providing cutting-edge, innovative tools for professionals and tool enthusiasts worldwide.  The professional-grade XL300 is the go-to tool for cable installers, electricians, and remodelers alike and a staple for cable and wire installations, concrete scanning and any time through-hole drilling is required.


“The ExitPoint™ XL300 even works as the world’s first true indoor or outdoor stud finder, enabling a user to quickly and easily locate stud locations from the exterior of the house – even through stucco,” stated Zircon president John Stauss. “With the XL300, we continue to redefine the DIY, commercial, and industrial markets, one tool at a time.”


Backed by Zircon’s limited warranty, the ExitPoint™ XL300, offers patented technology, proprietary features, and the latest innovation in scanning devices. It comes fully equipped with a hand-held receiver, set of small and large transmitter magnets, reusable adhesive discs, AAA batteries (in select markets), quick reference guide, and protective carrying case.

The ExitPoint™ XL300, with a suggested retail of $99.97, is available now at select home centers and hardware stores. To locate a store near you, call Zircon toll-free at 1-800-245-9265 or visit www.zircon.com.
