Ryobi AIRgrip Vacuum Holds Laser Level to Wall


October 16, 2004

October 17, 2004 The Ryobi AIRgrip laser level is a first-of-its-kind product that uses patented AIRgrip vacuum technology to affix itself to walls without marring surfaces. The AIRgrip laser level went on sale this month in the US for US$39.97.

The AIRgrip laser level uses a small battery-powered motor to create a vacuum on the bottom of a rubber base so that it can stick to painted walls, glass, untreated drywall, most wallpaper and many other non-porous surfaces.

Unlike devices which 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 both vertically or horizontally for several hours at a time.

The laser light's 635 nm laser diode is one of the strongest on the market, with a visible light up to 30 feet. The rotating head offers users multiple angle capabilities by rotating up to 360 degrees, while a unique rotating laser head rotates 90 degrees for vertical and horizontal applications.

Painters, drywallers, carpenters, remodelers and homeowners will find this new laser level easy to use and especially helpful. The AIRgrip laser level is perfect for hanging chair-rail, stairway railing, aligning pictures, putting up borders, installing crown molding, mounting shelving and leveling electrical outlet rough-ins.
