How to Use (Step by Step)
To use the Skill Accu-level to hang a picture or photograph, start by measuring the space you'll need for the piece by sliding the device's twin black sliders in or out. If you wish to mark the centerpoint of the measured area, you can do so at this point by making a pencil mark within the small hole in the middle of the level.
To ensure the area you've measured for your picture is actually straight, check the middle of the device ( for horizontal measurements ) or each end (for vertical measurements) to determine that no water lines are angled. If a water line does appear to be angled, you'll have to make a slight adjustment to the positioning of your device and double-check your measurement.
Once the water lines within your device have been leveled out, you'll be able to mark exactly where you want to insert your nails. To do so, simply push gently on each of the device's black sliders with a finger, and the tool will then lightly mark your wall.
- Has Adjustable Sliders
The adjustable sliders ( one on each side of the level ) will move smoothly back and forth in order to accommodate pictures and other items from 5.5 up to 19.5 inches wide. Hence, you'll be able to use them to measure an accurate amount of space within which to hang the vast majority of pictures or other household objects such as shelves.
- Marks Places for Nails
With a little push on each of the adjustable sliders, you'll be able to use your Skill Accu-level to mark exact spots for the nails you'll use to hang your pictures or other objects. The marks the device'll make will be no bigger than a dot that you'd make with a pen, so none of these will ever dramatically alter the look of one of your walls. If you ever take your wall decor down and want to cover up a mark, just a dab of paint will enable you to do so in seconds.
- Convenient Centerpoint Marker
In the middle of each of these levels is a convenient hole that you can use to mark the centerpoint of a measured area with a pencil. This feature will be especially helpful if you want to hang two separate things while maintaining a certain measured distance between them.
- Works Horizontally/vertically
You'll be able to effectively use this tool to make both horizontal and vertical measurements. No matter which way you've turned the device, you'll be able to eye the appropriate water line( s ) in order to determine whether a particular measurement is level or crooked.
- Can be Transported
Although the Skill Accu-level isn't extremely small, it's small enough for most people to carry from room to room without difficulty. If you need to transport yours in your vehicle in order to use it outside the home, you'll be able to do that, too.
- Helpful During Painting Jobs
In addition to making the process of hanging items go quickly and smoothly, this device can also be helpful during certain painting jobs. When you want to section off certain areas of a wall with tape and paint other areas, you'll be able to use this level to determine whether your lines of tape are straight enough.
- Comes With Hooks
With each Skill Accu-level, you'll also get 10 Accu-hooks that can be used for hanging small items, such as small photographs or paintings, on the wall.
