This is the ultimate tool in the toolmans', toolbox. This laser level only weighs 1 pound 3.1 ounces and is approximately 5" x 5" x 6". The tripod that you get with it is made of aluminum and only weighs 1 LB. and 5.8 ounces. This tripod will come in very handy, because it will act as an extra set hands for you. When opened up fully it stands 35" tall, with an additional 12" extension which will give you a total of 47". This whole kit only weighs 5 pounds and 14.6 ounces, the case is very durable and will help keep the laser protected when in storage or when traveling. Along with this being made of aluminum the three legs come in two sections that with just a flip of a lever you can lock and unlock them to stay in place. On top of this tripod there is a small bubble level to allow you to level the tripod then there are three more levels on the laser that will help you make the most out of your laser. This is a class lllA type laser, the laser wave length is 650nm +/-10 nm

The whole set-up can be locked into place just tightening the center locking ring which is stopped by a rubber o-ring. For more of a fine adjustment there is a hand crank located on the side top of the tripod, this crank can be slowly turned to raise and lower for the most precise spotting. The laser can be mounted either vertically or horizontally by screwing the laser onto the 5/8" threads that are located on top of the tripod. This will take 4 AA batteries to operate, you will get the first set with the kit, you may have to change these because they probably will have been sitting for a while you should get 25 working hours out of your batteries. When you first switch the laser on, you will see a split beam of red light shoot out of the top and side at the same time, be careful not to let this get you in the eyes. At the very top of the laser you have a black knob that will spin faster as you rotate the dial, to a maximum speed of 600rpm. The very durable and sealed casing that this laser is protected by, will help keep dust and water from getting into the inner components and damaging anything. It is best if you use this laser level at temperatures above 14F. - not to exceed 113F. This kit also has an IP protection class of 43 and comes with tinted safety glasses.
