True Blue 48 in. I-Beam Level is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 124.

I didn't test much, because I spent about 20 minutes just unpacking it. I mean they put so much tape and shipping labels. They won't come off!! I will have to try WD-40 or something to scrape all the glue off. Another thing, bubble tubes are not enclosed. I am not sure how it will affect longevity. For the price, I hope it will be fine. Did I mention shipping and packaging are horrible?

I used the 24 inch one to hang over 15 closets from scratch in a new construction home. It worked well and can't see any any difference if I were to use a more expensive one. I purchased the 24 inch level to hand the closets and it worked great. I then saw that this kit at homedepot for a few dollars more for two levels. This is a great level that will be used for many years to come.

It is still working but had its share of drops, dings, and use. Bubble mounts getting loose. Looked at levels and chose this one. More expensive than one made in China. Made in USA, well built, light weight, and level bubble has high visibility.

Was a little upset that it didn't come with the carrying pouch the description said it came with but I needed them the day after I picked them up so I didn't return it.

Then Home Depot refused to refund me for two weeks, forcing me to repurchase the levels in the meantime. Would not recommend to a friend.

Great price used to the high dallor empire but wanted cheap one for fencing. Wish it were in store when advertised, employees couldn't find them, hidden in black Friday stuff but shipped quick enough. Does its job no complaints on quality.
