4.
Store idle equipment. When not in use, tool must be stored in a dry location
to inhibit rust. Always lock up tool and keep out of reach of children.
5.
Use the right tool for the job. Do not attempt to force a small tool or
attachment to do the work of a larger industrial tool. There are certain
applications for which this tool was designed. It will do the job better
and more safely at the rate for which it was intended. Do not modify this
tool and do not use this tool for a purpose for which it was not intended.
6.

this instruction manual cannot cover all possible conditions and
situations that may occur. It must be understood by the operator
that common sense and caution are factors which cannot be built
into this product, but must be supplied by the operator.
Unpacking
When unpacking, check to make sure the following parts are included.
(1) Mini laser level
(1) Tripod
(3) 1.5V AG13 button cell batteries
(1) Instruction booklet
If any parts are missing or broken, please call Harbor Freight Tools at the number

Assembly
1.
To install batteries, unscrew the On/Off switch assembly, and insert three (3)
1.5v batteries (included). Be sure to install the batteries matching the polarity
marked in the battery compartment.
2.
This level may be used with or without the tripod. To install or remove the
tripod, thread the tripod stud located on the tripod head into the bottom of
the level. The tripod swivels 360 degrees, and may be tilted at up to 90
degrees vertical. If using the tripod, adjust it as desired, and lock the level
into place using the thumb screw located on the tripod head.
3.
The tripod legs may be extended and locked into place to provide greater
working height or to compensate for an uneven surface.

Operation
WARNING: Never allow the laser light or its reflection to shine
directly into the eyes of any person or animal.
Severe eye injury may result.

4.
Determine the intended use of the level, and optionally install the tripod,
if it will be needed.
Align the laser level as required, observing the vertical, horizontal or 45
degree spirit levels. These will indicate the relative position of the laser
level to actual level.
When the laser level is correctly positioned, turn on the laser by depressing the On/Off switch at the end of the level. Recheck the spirit levels to
be sure the laser level has not been moved.
Mark the desired measurement, then turn the laser off by depressing the
On/Off switch.
Using the level to equalize height of distant components: For
example: If you wish to install cement footings for a storage shed, first determine
the desired height of any one of the footings. Align the laser beam with the top
surface of the reference footing, and assure that the liquid level on top of the laser
level is at level with the ground. Now direct the laser beam toward each of the
remaining footing locations. On reference stakes at those locations, mark the spot
that the laser illuminates. This indicates the desired top surface of that footing.
This technique can be used for many similar applications, for example to align
pictures on a wall.
Using the level to install horizontal or vertical components: For
example: To install a chair rail on an interior wall, first mark the desired height of
the rail. Align the laser level with that point, and assure that the liquid level
indicates level with the floor. Shine the laser light on the adjoining wall, and have
an assistant mark that location. Now install the chair rail in a direct line between
the two points. This same technique can be used to install vertical or 45 degree
angle components.
Using the level to check slope: For example: To determine the slope
of a floor, place the laser level at one end of the floor, using the tripod. Assure that
the laser is level to the ground by observing the liquid level on the top. Measure
the vertical drop from the laser lens to the floor surface. Shine the laser light on a
ruler held vertical at the other end of the floor. The difference in these measurements is the amount of slope in the floor. This technique can also be used to
design slope, such as when constructing an outdoor surface which will require a
run-off slope.
Your laser level is a versatile tool. The above suggestions are only a few
of the many uses you will discover for this tool.
