    Does what it's supposed to
    After spending several frustrating hours trying to plumb columns in the wind with a plumb Bob, I gave up and bought the GPL5. It was a real pleasure getting the job done in a fraction of the time and more accurately.

    I clearly had not thought through how I was going to use this device when I bought it. It works as designed - and I may just not have figured it yet - but, as far as I can gather is essentially worthless outdoors.
    Unless there are walls or a "box" of some kind around it, there is nothing to focus on. The laser dot is incredibly difficult to locate and essentially requires two people to wander around until it hits them. The dot is also worthless in determining whether the post you are trying to position are plumb...
    For the right purpose I guess it could be useful but I have not yet determined that use.

    I use this tool all the time in place of my old plumb bob. Its accuracy is excellent. I really like the magnet for attaching it to my telescoping pole.

    Originally, purchased for a home use and now I use it at my job sites, where my staff often drop the unit including me too, yet it keeps performing with a problem, extremely "Durable"!

    It does everything I need it to do. If you're a carpenter th
    This will shoot a perfect straight line up down across and forward. I just wish it would shoot a level line instead of just a dot. They need to make a combo.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
