A good 24" level that could have been great. Solid construction-weight feels good in the hand, powerful magnets, padded ends, nice "V" groove for piping and a great adjustable cross vile. The one flaw in my opinion is too small of a bubble in the main vile.
The magnets are very powerful and I could not find anything metal that they would not stick tool. Nice bright orange paint over an aluminum frame makes it easy to locate. I purposely dropped the level from 1 foot height onto its padded ends and it really held well with no indicated damage. The adjustable cross vile is a bit touchy to get centered but a real time saver over the std. 45 deg. most levels have.
The main bubble in my opinion is too small allowing for up to 5/32 or .156" variation over the 2 feet when reading the level. The distance from the graduation lines to the edge of the bubble is just too great. Had this been less then 1/8" I would have given it 5 stars instead of 4 but the quality of the tool is superb. Good tool, recommended

Very nice level. Neighbor borrowed my old 24" level and can't find it, but I needed one for a project I am working on so grabbed the Klein Tools 24" level. My old one was all aluminum. This one is made of hard plastic in the middle and the edges are a strong metal. I actually prefer this one a little more due to it having a little more heft. Just feels better.
What stands out: The magnets it has on one side are good and strong. I store it attached to the door of garage cabinets and it stays put. There are 3 level bubbles. The middle one, the main one, is wide and has a flared plastic to act as a magnifying glass. Nice touch. One of the end level bubbles can be manipulated, so you can change its angle for measurements. I like the idea, but wish there was a positive lock at key angles like 0, 90 and 45. Good level, will last years I'm sure.

At first glance this level looks like it has a lot going for it:
* Feels weighty, very solid and looks well made like it will endure quite a few drops on the job site.
* Made by a Klein - a trusted name in hand tools.
* As well as a 90º bubble it has an adjustable bubble so you can set the level for any angle between 90, 0 and -90 degrees.
* Groove along the top for easy alignment against pipes.
* Magnets for use with steel framing etc.
* Rubberized grip.
* Rubber end caps for drop protection.
HOWEVER, as far as I'm concerned there is a fundamental flaw with this level that renders it not very useful to me:
* The bubbles in all three of the level's bubble vials are shorter than the space between the lines in the vials. This is not that unusual in bubble/spirit levels, however the bubble in the main, horizontal bubble vial is significantly shorter than the space between the lines making it hard to determine the level position. For comparison, I placed it next to two other levels I have - note that when the other levels are horizontal, either end of the bubble touches the registration marks.

This is a very rugged 24" level that I'm using to replace one that recently lost one of its bubble tubes. The magnetic feature is an excellent addition, and it has an angle-adjustable bubble tube for setting unique angles. All-in-all I think it was a great buy at my local Home Depot!

Never had seen a level from Klein Tools before, but this one is pretty nice. It has a bubble that can turn with degree labeled around it to level varying degrees of something, probably conduit or anything you need to make sure you have the correct angle. The level is mostly fiberglass or a resin, cannot really tell, but it adds a solid feel to it where most aluminum levels of today fail. The bubbles are big and very easy to see, and one side of the level has magnetic inserts which aids in ease of use when doing conduit work. I own a few different levels from a few different companies, but out of the now 4, 24" levels i have, this will easily become my go to, general use level. Being a Klein Tools fan anyways, it fits right in!

This tool is a well made bright shear orange aluminum two foot level.
Has vertical and horizontal easy read bubbles with a self adjust feature for angling.
I find this level is used in most applications that require leveling.
The tool light weight with substance about it and very good craftsmanship with bumper ends for drop shock.
This is most definitely a welcome tool!
Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, adjustable angling, great bubble view, great handles, bumper end protection
