It works and it's accurate!
As an inspector there are times when there's not another helping hand when you need a quick measure for those longer distances; already calibrated and ready to use out the of the box; compact, seems fairly rugged and a real time saver.

Describe Yourself:
Easy, fast and accurate!
I bought the GLM 40X for measuring baseboards and other trim work for my home. Since I'm over 65 I needed something that was easy, fast and accurate especially since my knees don't last long on the floor anymore. I have found that this tool is great and exactly what I wanted/needed but you don't have to be over 65 to get the great benefits from this tool.

Handy and surprisingly accurate
I own this product and don't know what I did without it. I do a lot of estimating for my crew and the feature where I can add my measurement saves me a lot of time. originally I was skeptical of the accuracy but when using for a while i found it is better than a tape measure especially over long distances where a tape rule can bend.

Don't overlook the fractions
Does a good job at measuring. Just that the fractions are really easy to overlook due to being too close to the edge and not as dark as the whole numbers.

Excellent quality
Just some advice when purchasing... also purchase a magnifying glass so you can see the fraction measurements.... why on Earth would you make the display so small I have pretty good eyesight but c'mon

I use this to create floor plans of existing buildings. It's the quickest and most accurate way to measure in my opinion. I've been super impressed with the quality and reliability of this tool.
