How Plumb Perfect Level® Started

The Plumb Perfect Level, like many inventions, originated out of frustration with the existing system, or lack thereof. Glass company owner, Brian Hale of Monroe, NC, did not like carrying multiple levels and long bars to each jobsite. Brian used any method of holding, clamping and taping a level to a long bar to get those important dimensions. Then, once in place and nearly true, he’d have to grab the tape measure, pull out the rule and strain to read the markings. You’ve all been there. Back at the shop, in between jobs and after hours, Brian spent the better part of four years developing the Plumb Perfect Level®.
He attached various sizes of levels to an assortment of long bars. He used common hardware to make an adjustable “leg” for the end of a 4ft carpenter’s level to hold the bubble steady. Brian eventually fixed an extending rod to the end of an aluminum extrusion large enough to slide over another piece of aluminum with a level bolted in place. A few stepslater and the first full working prototype of the Plumb Perfect Level was on the job site. Having achieved a patent on his invention, Brian found a Charlotte, NC machine shop with whom to collaborate and work out the finer details. Now, you can take advantage of Brian’s time and efforts with your own Plumb Perfect Level®.
