Ryobi AirGrip Laser Level


Billy Bastek, Home Depot's head honcho for hand and fastening tools, described the AirGrip in a March 22 Wall Street Journal story as one of the "great innovative items in hand tools" in the past year.

The reason?

The AirGrip adheres to any surface for hours — without leaving a mark behind.

    From a website describing it:

    The AirGrip® laser level uses a small battery-powered motor to take in air and creates a vacuum on the bottom of a rubber pad so that it can stick to painted walls, untreated drywall, most wallpaper and many other non-porous surfaces.

    Unlike devices that use pins, nails or expensive adhesive tapes, the AirGrip laser level will not leave a single mark on a wall, yet is powerful enough to adhere either vertically or horizontally for several hours at a time.
