“I use it mainly for lighting. I lay them out on the floor and transfer them up to the ceiling. This tool is the method on how I get the measurements up there. One useful feature it does have that some don’t is that it’s adjustable and has an adjustment tool so you can get it back to plum when it goes out. The thing I don’t care for is it’s a little big for what it does. Overall it’s a great bargain, and it comes with a case if you buy it here but if you get it from home depot you don’t get the case.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“I have always wanted to get one and was always borrowing someone else’s at the job. Don’t like to do that all the time. This tool is many times faster than a plumb bob and only requires one person to do the job related to the plumb bob task. There are many brands just as good as the Dewalt but I like the protective case, and the price was right.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
3. Skil Plumb Laser ($89.98)
This is Skil’s self-leveling cross-line laser. The unit projects horizontal, vertical laser, cross-line, and manual for precise plumbing and alignment. The horizontal laser line is projected with 120-degree fan angle. It automatically senses out of level arrangements and alerts the user.
“Great tool especially considering the price. Seems to be dead on compared to my 4 foot level along a 14′ run. Also came with a tripod (includes bag) and a soft case for the laser itself. Highly visible indoors in a 12′-14′ room lighted with four 60 W bulbs. Also visible outside in overcast. One thing to note: this laser does not lock the pendulum mechanism when in manual mode or off as some advertisements (and the instructions) say. All the “manual” mode does is disable the not-level warning. You can still use it fine. Probably not a big deal for an occasional user with a little care. I probably would not want it bouncing around from job to job in my work vehicle. Great product. Don’t hesitate to buy it from Amazon.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“I have been using one of these little laser plumb/levels for about a month now. It is the first, and often the only level I reach for these days. It shoots a bright red dot visible in full daylight and makes locating plumb and level points a cinch. Perfect for framing, layout, finish,etc.. It is rugged enough to handle the usual job-site bumps and scratches, and small and light enough to fit in your tool pouch. Long battery life too. The only drawback is that the other guys on the crew constantly want to borrow it!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“The best thing I’ve bought in a while. This is a GREAT level laser! We are building our retirement home ourselves and needed a laser leveller to install the kitchen (I mean “we are building” literally). I purchased this one, and we got them in straight and level. It allowed two amateurs to do a professional job!! And, at a price, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have one just because.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
