Channellock, known for their iconic blue-handled USA-made pliers, has just announced a new line of bubble levels for both professional and DIY use.
All three models feature 3 vials in 0°, 45°, and 90° orientations, 4 super strong rare earth magnets, a durable aluminum body and a lanyard hole. They are all also waterproof, shock-proof, and jobsite-friendly.
Channellock 615 Professional Torpedo Level
The torpedo level is 8-1/2″ in length, and features a V-groove for quickly aligning pipe and conduit. Its central vial can be viewed from either side and through a large top window.
Channellock 620 Professional Level
A little larger and slightly more ergonomic than the torpedo level, the 620 professional level is 8-1/4″ long and features an 8-inch measuring scale on one side. Like the torpedo level, the 620 has large vials that can be easily read from both sides and the top.
Channellock 620L Professional Laser Level
Based off of the 620 level design, the 620L features a built-in class IIa red laser diode that is accurate to 1/4″ at 100-feet. The fittings are all made from brass to avoid rust.
I did have the chance to try out pre-production samples of these levels (thank you to Channellock), and the two features I liked the most are the levels’ spaciously bubble vial viewing windows, and the incredibly strong magnets. That’s not all I liked about them, but you’ll have to wait for the full review to hear the rest.
Right now you can purchase these levels from Channellock.com, but they will be available through major retail channels shortly.
