I want to like Bosch tools, I really do… I'm quite happy with their lasers, but as with several other Bosch purchases, this pole was a big disappointment.
It worked ok, twice. Very wobbly though, every time I walked across the kitchen floor I had to wait for the laser line to quite bobbing up and down.
The third kitchen I set up to install, the internal cam mechanism stuck, broke, something… whatever happened, it rendered the dang thing nothing more than an expensive, useless stick.
It's not like it's a difficult tool to use, just twist the plastic thingamajig to tighten and loosen the collar which locks the pole into extension, but this failed in less than two weeks of job site use.
I'd say, don't waste your money - you can use things you probably already have; I've used my laser on a work light tripod, on a Zipwall pole, on a metal framing clip clamped to a door jamb, have just set the laser on a cabinet box, and when the Bosch pole conked I hooked my laser to my TJack pole - which, by the way, is a much better investment of the same dollars, imo.

I gave this product four stars because it did not come with instructions. Why, you ask, do you need instructions? Well, because I kept trying to turn the knurled cylindrical knobs which surround the poles to lock them in place. I finally realized that you turn the poles themselves to lock them at a particular height. After the discovery, it work beautifully.

I just got this for my recently acquired GLL2-20 Bosch laser level (360 degree horizontal, 120 degree vertical). I pulled it out of the box, set it up five minutes later and already was making some adjustments on my current project. I haven't used the tripod product but I was concerned that would be limiting for any situation involving heights higher than ~5-6 feet whereas this pole covers all scenarios. Fine-tuning the level placement with the included bracket takes a couple of attempts. There may be some compatibility with the toothed-bracket included with the level itself; haven't checked that yet.
