          Klein Tools was started in the 1857 & is still American owned & operated by the same family. I got my first Klein tool when I started as a lineman in the early 60s, & I still have those pliers. The Home Depot
          website has a lot of information on the controls of the laser. I had never used a laser, but I my son, who is a G.C. has a smaller one, he had no problem using it to check a metal stud wall on a remodel. He used it on a dropped ceiling in a converted retail space. So far has had no problem attaching the unit where he wants it. Great carrying case to go into the tool bins on the truck.
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Sturdy, looks like a money maker

          The thermometer has a charm due to it's simplicity. The plain brass housing is 4" in dia. & has a plain white dial with black letting with "F" & "C" numbers. It mounts on a plain brass rod & a small clamp with screws. It has several holes in the back so it will need to be mounted out of the direct weather. I mounted mine on the front porch by the front window at eye level. I like the simple design.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Good Shape, Sharp, Stylish, Vibrant Color, look's good

          The light has "touch switch" to control how bright the light is, turn it off & it stays at that setting when you turn back on. I found sitting in my chair the light was just the right height for reading, & with the dimmer control quite pleasant , The assembly is straight forward. If you have some help to assembly, it will go pretty fast. It has enough weight in the base so you will not tip it over.
          Pros: Eco-Friendly, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright
