Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great simple plumb bob There's not a whole lot you can say about a plumb bob. I like this one because it has a good sharp drop point and the string always stays centered. It is also nice because you can wrap the string around the body and throw it back in your belt or tool box. If you tried that with one of the pear shaped plumb bobs, the string would unravel and you would have a mess. August 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What can I say? It’s a plumb. It’s name is Bob. At least I assume his name is Bob; I hope I haven’t been calling him by the wrong name. But they can’t *all* be named Bob; that would just be weird. Even that guy on Newhart who had 2 brothers named Darrell wasn’t named Darrell... But I digress. Bob is a lovely, sturdy, pointed piece of metal. As you can see from the closeup, he's got a hole on top to thread a cord down into and knot it, so it'll slide back into that notch and he'll be free to hang straight down. It took me a little experimenting to find the right thickness of cord to clear the top hole and channel, but also leave a knot of the right size to both fit back into the channel but not slip back up through the top hole. I'm sure there's cord made just for this purpose, but i ended up using a doubled strand of soft twine and it worked just fine. Now Bob's ready for anything I need to plumb ( or see how out of plumb things are, which can get depressing in an older house :-) August 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use This is an easy to use tool with precision results. The weight keep the plum-bob straight and true. Simply run string through top hole and viola all set to go. This has a space at the top to rool string up on for storage. I recently put fencing up and my results were almost perfect having used this for layout and placement of my post's. Very happy I used this vs. nothing. July 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy I have completed many handyman and carpentry jobs in my home, basement and yard structures and often needed to have a vertical plumb line established. Always made do with a string and something like a small bolt for a weight. The new plumb bob with the center point at the bottom will be nicer for my next project and eliminate some of the guesswork!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent basic product This is a good basic plumb bob. It's easy to thread the string in -- a threaded cap has a hole in it, thread the string thru the hole, knot the string, screw the cap back onto the product. The flats of hex shape should dampen out the oscillations -- better than a round body -- when using it next to a wall. April 5, 2015
