Cover locators

What is a cover locator?

A cover locator is an electronic device used for locating manhole covers and other underground objects. Cover locators are used by building inspectors, sewer contractors, and plumbing technicians to locate metal objects such as covers, pipes, and stopcocks which have been hidden underground.


Cover locators work by using an array of sensors, capable of detecting changes in density, moisture, and magnetic properties of materials. When a change is detected, the locator will emit a signal to the operator, who can then use it to find the hidden object.

It is important to note that some covers and other hidden objects can be difficult or impossible to detect using a cover locator, especially if they're buried deep underground or is made from a material undetectable by the locator's sensors.
