Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a good tool for DIY bought it for my back yard project. it fits my needs. for DIY(not pro use), it is really good for its quality and price. no complaint. June 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Every house should have one This level has helped me in numerous house projects of all kinds. It has passed the sturdiness test since I’ve dropped it from the ladder a few times and it did not break. I sometimes even use it as a ruler. Every house should have one. February 13, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cant level w/a bent level Mine is bent. Seemed ok at the store but after some minor use it's clearly not an accurate strait edge. Placed it against a flat glass surface to reveal bumps and bends that keep it from being a reliable measure. I am not happy - returning it now. November 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by it is a good tool Its length makes it easy to use on framing. Can be used in different directions. April 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great buy like the weight of the level would recommend this to all. September 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the price. Good for the price. Sturdy enough for home use and maybe light jobsite use. Accurate off of the shelf. A much better choice so far than the plastic one I did have and snapped in cold weather. I still have a nice wood one for more precise work. If you need one to have around the house, this is worth having. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool! I needed a 48 inch level for a patio door install, and got this one. Worked as it should, and the price was hard to beat! July 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Adequate level at great price for this length I needed a long level to adjust newly installed kitchen cabinets. This aluminum level is light duty but entirely adequate. It did the job for an excellent price. It includes a useful ruler embossed on the side. May 27, 2014
