Measuring tapes can be a pain to use solo, and just wanted to measure some stuff around the house. This compact laser measure is perfect.
Honestly, I was sold at compact and laser, but the ability to measure stuff with one touch of a button is pretty handy. Good for measuring distances of 6 inches to 50 feet, or basically what you need around the house, this Bosch measure is accurate to 1/8 of an inch. Literally all it does is measure distance, and it only has one button. This unit is super simple to use.
If you just want to center a painting on a wall without begging a friend to come over this is a great tool!
