We’re On The Level

We’re especially high on this 5mW red laser level with a prism for perfect pictures, level studs or unslanted TV's. Measures 4" x 2-3/8" x 1-5/8" in a housing with dual bubble levers, pushpins and gum to mount it temporarily. If Bonanno Pisano had had one, that tower in Pisa might not lean at all, but, sadly, Alessandro Volta didn’t get around to inventing batteries for another 600 years. Speaking of which, you’ll need to add a pair of “AAA”s to make that red line happen.
