Leica A4 Target Plate

If you do ever struggle with measuring distances with any laser tape measure, I would suggest getting a target plate or a kodak grey card. The target plate or the kodak grey card will enable maximum distance measurements as it is the ideal reflective surface. I went for the Leica A4 Target Plate like this one on I found on amazon. I find it is better for the longer distances than the smaller, cheaper options like these ones that are on amazon.

These cards are especially useful in the lighter conditions outdoors. As they have different coloured sides, they can help with targeting over larger distances too as they reflect the laser beam better. Another option for spotting the laser beam is to get a pair of red tinted glasses like these ones. Check out the latest prices for red tinted glasses on amazon here.

Bosch Professional 240cm Cut and Fill Rod for Bosch Rotary Lasers is more adjustable for taking levels that are above or below the desired level. It is not ideal for heavy construction sites but would be ideally suited to building developments for checking walls and floors for level.

This digital laser tape measure is a very handy tool to have as it can measure in 3 different and unique ways. The 3 ways you can measure with this tape measure are:

String Mode: Wrap a string around the object you want to measure the circumference of.

Roller Mode: Measure the length of irregular shapes with the roller mode. Very handy for internal curved structures or walls.

It has a large back-lit LCD Screen for reading the measurements you are taking. The Measure King takes four AAA batteries which aren’t supplied with the tape measure which is a shame. Make sure that you order batteries at the same time.
