SUMMARY: Stanley enhances its line of stud finders with the new STANLEY® IntelliLaser™ Pro Stud Finder / Laser Line Level (#77-500), a versatile two laser level set that functions separately as a stud finder and laser level and jointly as a layout tool. The set features a new laser pod that generates level, plumb or diagonal lines along a wall or floor and a stud finder that locates studs along the same planes. For additional functionality, removable, non-marring adhesive tabs used with the laser pod allow both tools to be used at the same time without the assistance of another person.
NEW BRITAIN, CT, October 1, 2006 - Stanley introduces the new STANLEY® IntelliLaser™ Pro Stud Finder / Laser Line Level (#77-500), a highly versatile two laser level set that functions separately as a stud finder and laser level or jointly as a layout tool. The set features a new laser pod that generates plumb, level and diagonal laser lines along a wall or floor. The stud finder for this set locates studs and live wires along the same planes through common wall materials up to 1-1/2” thick.
The laser pod unit of the STANLEY® IntelliLaser™ Pro Stud Finder / Laser Line Level is a compact laser level tool that can be attached to a wall surface using the included non-marring, removable adhesive tabs. With the use of these tabs, both tools can be used together for layout projects without the assistance of another person.
“The STANLEY® IntelliLaser™ Pro Stud Finder / Laser Line Level solves so many problems through its unique, detached laser pod design,” said Bob Scilia, global product manager for Stanley Measuring and Layout. “Many products in the marketplace provide the function of a studfinder and others provide level laser lines. However, for under $50, none have the level of versatility this set offers together. With the removable adhesive tabs, the number of layout projects that can be accomplished with this tool set increases exponentially including shelving, tiling, wall cabinet installation, stripe painting, picture hanging and even doorframe alignment.”
The stud finder features a push button activated laser guide for both horizontal (level) and vertical (plumb) lines and detects studs and joists within common wall materials up to 1-1/2”. It also supplies continuous live wire detection. An LCD sensing and mode display features new patent pending graphics on the display and visually informs the user of the proximity of the stud. The stud finder requires a nine-volt battery that is not included.
The laser pod level features durable, easy to read vials for both horizontal (level) and vertical (plumb) line projection. The pod is attached to a surface by placing an adhesive tab on the bottom of the pod and pressing it onto the wall until its feet snap into the tool. When done utilizing the projected laser line, the pod comes off the wall by pulling in the adhesive tabs which releases it from the wall. The laser pod laser level requires two AAA batteries that are not included.
The suggested retail price for the STANLEY® IntelliLaser™ Pro Laser Stud Finder / Line Level is $49.99. It is available wherever STANLEY® products are sold.
