In the past year, have you struggled with a long tape measure, trying to extend it beyond its maximum standout (or reach)?
Have you had difficulty spanning obstructions, such as a toy-cluttered living room floor?
Did you need to measure a distance that was longer than the compact tape measure you had at-hand?
It might be time you bought your first laser distance measuring tool, and this Bosch GLM 20 is a great deal to consider.
Here’s what I like about the Bosch GLM 20 laser distance measuring tool:
- Usable range (65′)
- AAA batteries
- Decent quality
- Bosch reputation
- Simple user interface
It’s got just one button. There’s no use trying the “but it’s too complicated to use” excuse with this one.
It’s not a super-featured laser distance measuring tool – this one is as basic as they come – but that’s the point of it.
While not the most compact tool of its kind these days, I much prefer AAA-powered tools for something like this, than say a built-in Li-ion or LiPo battery that has to be charged and maintained via USB.
The Bosch GLM 20 is down to $30 again, as part of Amazon’s early Black Friday and Holiday 2020 tool deals, and that’s a very good price.
$30 is the GLM 20’s usual seasonal price, and so you have time to think the deal over – I’m sure you will be able to get it at this price over the next few weeks.
Have you found another sub-$50 laser distance measuring tool that you’d recommend over this one?
And for those of you thinking “but I’ve been using laser distance measuring tools for years!!,” what would you say about this model to anyone who’s looking for their first?
