      The Blind Mark will help you get perfect drywall cutouts with no measuring. Just insert the target in the receptacle before hanging drywall. When you're ready to cut the hole, hold the Blind Mark Locator magnet over the area where you think the receptacle is located. When it finds the receptacle, the magnets will snap precisely into place where the receptacle is located. Trace around the locator, cut, then install. With the Blind Mark you simply put it up once, cut the hole and you're done.

      • Works on drywall, plywood, particle board, laminated flooring, masonite, exterior siding, cement board, tile backsplashes, slate and more
      • Target magnets fit standard single or multi-gang, standard or thin plastic or metal boxes for any new construction installation
      • No more measuring and no risk of mis-measuring - just locate the receptacle, mark, cut and you're done
      • Twice as easy as other receptacle locating methods because you only lift the drywall once
      • You can even use it as a stud finder
      • Includes 3 target magnets so you can easily find multiple boxes at once, saving time

      • Easy drywall marking and cut-outs
      • February 06, 2007

      In the past year and a half, I have used the BlindMark and ArcMark products in helping to build nine Habitat for Humanity homes. That's a total of more than 1000 cut-outs for electrical boxes, vents, and lights, so I have some expertise in this area. Before using the BlindMark products, the crew would often cut the electrical wires stuffed in the boxes (using the "stab the saw in the middle of where you think the box is" technique), or it would be a laborious project of measuring, marking and cutting just to find out that the hole wasn't exactly where you wanted it! Since switching to using the BlindMark magnet, EVERY hole is perfect, there have not been any cut wires, no forgotten boxes, and our speed has picked up. No more box measuring, just a mark on the floor for each stud location and a ">" or "<" showing what side of the stud a box is on. After the drywall sheet is loosely tacked in place, each box is found and marked using the locator magnet, and then cut-out with a spiral saw using a guide-tip blade to guide around the outside of the box (guide the tool in a counter-clockwise direction for outside cuts!). A knife or keyhole saw could also be used, but the spiral saw is fast and makes a nice clean cut-out. After the holes have been cut, the drywall panel is then pushed all the way to the studs and nailed or screwed. We work on several rooms all at the same time and have found that taping the magnets into the boxes with masking tape is a good idea since hammering on the other side of the wall tends to make the magnets fall out. This is the only "flaw" that I have found with using this method. I highly recommend this product to all drywallers, pro and amateur alike.
