Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GOOD BUY Level is well made and sturdy. Well worth the purchase price December 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Item I found that this item is light weight,durable , easy to use and read, and with the magnetic strip, it will stay on slippery metal surfaces without worry. I would purchase this item again. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leveled the playing field THere are many Levels to choose from but this one took the cake for me. The level is "beefy" and stays in place where you lay it. Other levels that I have had I was always afraid of it falling due to the lightness of the level. The product feels great in your hands, has a nice blue color (if looks matter to you, and does the job perfectly. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great professional level This 48" level is great. I also have the 8-foot version of the same brand and the two are a good set (you can't use just one size level for all situations). I rarely use the magnetic feature but when I do it's extremely handy, like sticking it to steel tubing and being able to stand back and adjust without holding the level. It's also a good size and weight, easy to handle, and easy to read and see. Looks professional too, and accurate. Beginners and professionals alike should enjoy this level. September 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well Designed Level I used this level extensively on a recent bathroom remodel. I found it to be comfortable to use and accurate for plumbing new studs. I also used it to set and level a new bathtub. At 48” it was long enough to get accurate readings along the length of tub apron and diagonally, as well. The result was a dead-level tub! All bubbles are easy to read. It feels good in the hand and it is well constructed and tough. It also has a magnetic edge, though I haven’t used this feature yet. This is a quality 48” level that I expect to have for a long time. December 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful! This level is wonderful! It works for any job and gives a very accurate reading. I used this to install a wall mounted storage system, hang a series of pictures and gallery walls, and level a washing machine. In every application the level was so easy to use and the length is excellent as using a shorter level can provide a false positive reading on some surfaces. The level is made of a very sturdy metal and is incredibly light weight. It is 48 inches long, so the lightness of it makes it so that it is not clumsy to use. October 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong magnet This is a nice, heave duty level. The magnet is more then strong enough to hold the level to a metal door, or any steel cabinet. It takes a strong pull to get it off. The blue tint to the liquid in the vials makes it easy to see the bubble. The markings are easy to see, and the edges of the bubble just touch the innermost lines when it is level. This level is ideal for leveling control and larger electrical panels. It makes a great addition to my tool box. August 30, 2013
