With point - type laser level, you can lay out your ceiling box and light fixture locations on the floor, where it's easy to measure, and then use laser to transfer them to the ceiling. This technique is especially useful for vaulted or sloped ceilings, where locating light fixtures would require plumb bob. Start by marking light fixture locations on the floor with masking tape. Then elevate laser and line up downward pointing beam with center of fixture. Now you can mark where the upward pointing beam hits the ceiling. All kinds of remodeling projects require square layout lines. Tilingfloors or wallsis perfect use for laser level square. The only function of this special type of laser level is to project a pair of perpendicular lines, like crosshairs. Laser square is great for planning your layout: You can set it on the floor and measure from lines to see how your tile layout will work. And it's perfect for actually setting tile too, because lines won't get covered by thin - set or mastic. You 'll find laser squares at home centers and online. Most laser levels have a threaded hole on the bottom that accepts standard 1 / 4 - in. Tripod mount. Some laser levels come with tripod. But if yours doesn t, it's worth buying one. The Tripod allows you to easily adjust the laser to the best height and level it on uneven ground. But you don't need a tripod that's designed for lasers. If you already have a camera tripod, it ll probably work just fine with your laser since threads are usually the same size. Or buy cheap ones wherever cameras are sell. If you 've ever installed kitchen cabinets, you know how time - consuming it is to mark stud locations inside the cabinet to position mounting screws. With laser level that projects plumb line, it's easy. You still have to locate studs and mark centers. But once this is done, you can simply align the vertical beam with stud mark and drive your screw on laser line. This tip will work for cabinets, shelves or any other installation that requires you to anchor to studs. Common misconception about using laser is that you have to get the beam line up exactly where you want it to be. In most cases, it's easier to simply project a laser line somewhere on wall, and use it as a reference. Just measure up or down from line desire amount and mark wall. When you use this method, it's good idea to mark wall at laser line, too. Then if the laser gets bump, or you move it, you can reestablish the same reference line by lining up the laser with your mark. You can also use point - type laser as reference. You 'll just have to swivel it to make marks in other locations.
