    We're always looking at ways to save time...we do a ton of wall and building installs and were thinking how much faster it'd be to use a laser level rather than measure measure measure, mark mark mark.....

    Is anyone here using a level to hang signs? Apply vinyl to walls/existing flat subs?

    Curious how you like it...and which level you're using.

    I used to do the signage in Revco and CVS drug stores and would use a laser to get all the lettering the same height.

    I don't find much use for it for vinyl, but if doing wall signs in large quantities, I use it a ton.

    I use one of DeWalt's versions and have zero complaints. The batteries last a ridiculously long time.


    The first pic shows a quick way to center a sign above an object - in this case a switch plate.

    The second pic shows the setup I normally use but extended to it's maximum height. The laser gets mounted to a tripod which gets mounted to my cart. It comes in very useful when installing signs in hospitals for example, where a large number of signs are being installed at the same height.

    The third pic shows the laser being used to mark a repeating center and install height. I had to install 18 of these in 6 identical rooms. It made it much easier to roll into the room and hang the center plaque where it needed to be and subsequently the other two.

    will be using that concept for future install, plus the cart allows you to carry the tools signs with ease
