The ToolSmart™ laser distance measure is designed to replace a conventional tape measure. The TS01 is faster, safer and more accurate than a conventional tape measure. It takes much less time and only one hand to hold the tool against a wall, aim at the opposite wall and press the button than it does requiring both hands to secure one end of a conventional tape measure, walk the other end to the far wall, write down the reading and retract the tape. The TS01 offers advanced features, like an area function that provides the square footage of a room or wall so you can easily estimate the amount of paint, flooring, tiles or other materials needed to complete your project. The laser measure also can act like a digital tape measure that offers real-time, continuous measurement. Its large, backlit screen is easy to read from all angles and saves and displays the last four measurements taken. Use it alone or pair it with your smartphone with the free ToolSmart™ app to save projects and measurements, build project lists or to just find inspiration. Small and compact, the TS01 comfortably fits in your hand and is easily carried in your pocket.
