It seems like there’s a never ending supply of gadgets to assist the homeowner in hanging pictures and shelves; it’s not like it’s rocket science, is it? Here’s an interesting one — the Kapro Prolaser Set-A-Shelf which combines a ruler, level, stud finder, sliding stops, and a class II laser into an all-in-one measuring tool.

Magnetic levels are great, but only a small subset of pipes are made from a magnetic material; the rest are PVC, ABS, copper, or something else entirely. So what do you use to level, plumb and slope these pipes? You could use Kapro pipe levels.

Made from a flexible extruded polymer, the pipe levels snap onto and stay on standard sized pipes. The pipe levels have both vertical and horizontal bubble vials, and the vials have three painted lines for measuring different slopes.

Available in a five-piece set with levels for 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/4″ to 1-1/2″, and 2″ pipes, you can pick up the set for around $10.

Tired of sticking your face against the wall to see if it’s plumb? Levels with Kapro’s Plumb Site Dual View show a reflection of the plumb vial on the front edge. Not only do they claim it’s easier to read, but that it can eliminate parallax errors — basically errors that creep in because you aren’t looking straight at the bubble vial.

When you’re installing tile you want to cut holes for fixtures in the right place the first time. There are several ways to do this pretty accurately: measuring the location and transferring the measurements to the tile, placing the tile over a previous tile and using another tile to transfer the location of the hole, or making a template out of cardboard.

Compared to the above methods, Kapro’s 303 ceramic hole marker is just a faster reusable template. You can use it to copy the positions of pipe holes right onto tile. Slip the closed hole over a pipe stub and align the handle with the corner of the installed tile, tighten the screw lock, and transfer the measurement to your tile.

Besides just measuring 45° and 90° like a combination square, the Penta Square also measures 22.5° and 60°.  But, that’s only four measurements; penta is a prefix for five. Either they’re considering 180° a measurement, or else they’re call it that because of the irregular pentagon-shaped body.

Kapro etches the 12″ stainless-steel blade in both Inch and Metric graduations. The bubble vial rotates within the body to check level and plumb in “all” positions. Absent is the thumb screw locking mechanism of a normal combination square. They’ve replaced it with their EasyLock mechanism, which they neglect to show in the literature.

Depending on where you look, the Penta Square could cost you as little as $6.

Can you spot something missing on Kapro’s Combination Square? Actually two things are missing.  Notice there’s no channel running the length of the rule; it’s smooth and flat. You don’t need a channel because this square doesn’t have the usual thumb screw locking mechanism. Instead six rare-earth magnets hold the body where you position it.
