Laser Level Tripod
A laser level tripod can really make the difference between doing a pro job and an amateur one. A tripod is a great purchase for anyone who uses their laser level on a regular basis and wants consistent and accurate results.
Why a Tripod?
A tripod for your laser level will ensure that the device itself is level and on solid footing. If you’ve ever tried putting a laser level on an unstable surface such as a ladder, you probably know what a hassle it is. Ladders, tables and chairs all end up getting knocked or bumped. There’s nothing worse than having your laser level all setup and then someone bumps whatever it is sitting on. You then have to re-set the level. On a job site this can turn into a huge waste of valuable time and money. A tripod will ensure that your level is always sitting on a solid support and that you’ll get accurate results.
Laser level tripods are typically made out of heavy duty aluminum or fiberglass. You can also find some models that are made from wood. They are very similar to camera tripods and have three telescoping legs. These legs usually have cleats on the bottom for outdoor use or rubber feet for indoor use. Some models have quick release leg levers for fast setup and adjustment.
The head on the tripod can be either domed or flat. This is where your laser level will connect to the tripod itself. You’ll want to make sure that the tripod you’re buying has the correct type of head for your laser level. Some companies such as CST make tripod adapters. Check your user’s manual or the manufacturers website to find out what type of tripod head will work with your level.
If you are serious about getting accurate results, check out a laser level tripod. They are not very expensive and will make your job a lot easier in the long run.
