I have a little "clip on" Clarke Level. You can attach it to a straight edge of any length and bingo! You have a level

Think there's a Murphy's Law somewhere the more you care about a level the heavier the gravitational pull on that level is.

Good luck on that search.


Well,Matt Risinger will claim it happens every day on his jobs. But then again,he is a TV carpenter.

I've had many tools come crashing down to the ground from a cart or a table or some other elevated area. After years of frustration I started to put them on the ground. Can't fall. Solve all my problems. So when you come into my shop and see tools on the floor, they are there for a reason. They can't fall.

Well, for masons,laying a level on the scaffold plank is not an option. It would be the kiss of death,it would get rolled over by wheelbarrows,brick carts and kicked to the ground by laborers . Instead,a level hook is the way to go,it fits nicely around the pipe scaffolding,if bumped,it may swing a bit like a pendulum but pretty much stay where it should.
