One of my contractors showed me this recent addition to his “bag of tricks” and I immediately ordered one for myself, after checking reviews. When I list a home for sale, I often measure the rooms using a bulky 25′ steel tape measure. It’s accurate but rather time-consuming.
This Bosch digital device is lightweight and super easy to use. All you do is butt the back of it up to one wall, and press the arrow toward the opposite wall. When the red laser beam appears, the readout on the device gives you an exact measurement (i.e. 12’10”). It even gives you fractions of inches where needed. Then, take it to the other wall, without clearing out the first number, and press the arrow again, and you’ll have your total room size, i.e. 12’10” x 14’11 7/8″. It measures to 32nds, and up to 120 ft. So quick, so easy. Takes the hassle out of measurements of all kinds, including ceiling height, volume and area.
I bought mine on Amazon for about $79…money well spent!
