RYOBI Laser Level Review

RYOBI Laser Level Review

There are always projects to do around the house. Some are big projects, and some are small projects.

Whatever the project is in my house I like to tackle it myself. I'm not the best handyman but I can hold my own when comes to work around the house.

I've learned some tricks over the years to help me get by with most of my own projects.

One day I was in our local hardware store and noticed this laser level. My first thought was why would I ever need one of these. 

Then I thought, wait a minute, one of my problems was hanging pictures or adding a shelf on the walls and keeping them straight.

I can tell you that I've patched up many holes in the walls fixing my mistakes while hanging pictures and shelves. Well, not anymore because this little laser level makes it so easy even I can do it.

 I now have pictures and shelves that are perfectly level. Although, I do miss those words from Fran, "that's not straight". This handy little tool helped me fix all of my mistakes.


This shelf is now perfectly level, but that wasn't always the case with this shelf. This shelf requires it to be hung from two points on the backside. There are two notches that screws fit into on the back of the shelf. Trying to get the second screw level with the first screw was a nightmare for me.

The laser level made this easy, just set the first screw, then mount the laser level on the wall. Line it up to the centerline of the first screw, using the level on the tool to make sure it's level. Now, measure and mark the wall on the laser line for the second screw. Wow!! Perfect every time.

Some other projects that my laser level made easy, hanging wallpaper, and borders, pictures, and curtain rods. I had to add some new posts for our deck, I used the laser level to determine the correct height of each post. I even lined up the photo eyes on my garage door with it. So, it turns out that I really did need one of these.

  1. What timing Sam! I've been after my other half to hang some pictures around our home and he hasn't done it yet. I think this is one of his problems, getting everything level! I think I will have to get one of these so that I can stop bugging him! It will be a win-win situation for both of us!

    1. I'm sure he will like this handy tool Olivia. It sure does take the guess work out of keeping everything straight.

  2. Well now that is just really cool! I wondered how you would attach the laser lever to the wall. We have fought the level battle many times and ended up with holes that then need to be patched. Curtain rods have always been the most challenging, or perhaps the most often to try to tackle. Every time our daughter moves, she waits for her dad to hang the curtains because he has the best eye for it, although he does use a basic level. This sounds like a gift he would really appreciate. Thanks for the review and recommendation.

    1. The suction cups hold the laser level to the wall very nicely. With this tool I don't put off hanging shelves and pictures any more, and it is perfect for curtain rods. Thanks Cynthia.

  3. I have needed one of these often for hanging pictures after my frequent moves. It would have been a lifesaver in the 'patience' department for both hubby & me. If I move again, I am definitely getting one. :)

  6. Sam, This has been on my wish list, with a question mark, for awhile. I thought this was a tool I could eventually use in the new house. But I was skeptical. Thank you for your review. I can now remove the question mark.
