Carelessly Drilling into Walls

Hanging Shelves, closet systems, and artwork means drilling into your walls- but do you know what's back there? Hidden inside your walls are plumbing pipes, ductwork, wires, and cables.

You can check for some stuff with a stud sensor - a $25 battery operated tool that detects changes in density to sniff out studs, cables, and ducts.

But stud sensors aren't foolproof. Protect yourself by drilling only 1 1/4 inches deep max - enough to clear drywall and plaster but not deep enough to reach most wires and pipes.

Household wiring runs horizontally from outlet to outlet about 8 inches to 2 feet from the floor, so that's a no drill zone. Stay clear of vertical locations above and below wall switches - wiring runs along studs to reach switches.
