One-button Bosch GLM 15 simplifies measuring
By Anthony Capkun
August 27, 2014 – With its one-button operation and pocket-sized precision, Bosch says its new GLM 15 laser measure will “change the way the world measures”.
With a single touch of a button, the unit turns On and defaults to Always-On measuring (distances up to 50 feet and within 1/8-in. accuracy). Click the button again to record your measurement. When you’re done, press and hold the same button to turn it Off. A square, flat design makes the product easy to use on any surface, says Bosch. Rest it on a flat surface, and measure in any direction with the display screen pointed the same way. Measurements start at the back of the tool for distance marking.
