Any tool that can make our jobs easier is fantastic.  This tool sounds great.  I am still trying to locate it in an actual retail store here in Kelowna... but if all else fails I will order it online!  WE LOVE OUR TOOLS!

    Ever been frustrated when trying to hang art that has two keyholes on the back? Many shelves, plaster pieces and corbels have them and they have been a problem for me.  Here is a great solution.

 The Black and Decker BSDL 36 inch Level with Accu Mark . You may have seen it advertised on TV around Christmas, 2008.  That was when I went hunting for it and couldn't find it anywhere.  Even online it was a back ordered item.  When I spoke to a sales person at Home Depot he said that they sold so many over the holidays that Black and Decker couldn't keep up with the demand. 

Today I found it several places  on-line, just google the name or click on the link above.  I think that I paid around $25 for it at Home Depot but found it on several sites for shipping of course,  Be forewarned that I read several on-line reviews that said it was damaged (the level vials) in shipment so maybe buying it local would be best. 

I originally had no intention of getting a 36 inch level...too big and bulky, but it's the 36 incher that has these clever holes (accu marks) that slide for marking the keyhole, sawtooth hooks, and other hangers on your art.  Place the level on the back of the art, place the sliding holes over them, then place the level on the wall at the desired height, level and mark.  YES it really does work.  I just hung a mirror for a client with no problems.   Just make sure to have a sharpened pen with you. 

The sliders, (accu marks) adjust for art with hangers from 10 apart to 28 1/2 inches apart.  Wide enough for most art that I hang.  No more measuring from the floor or ceiling, then across the art between the holes and then hoping your aren't OFF by 1/8 of an inch.
