Black and Decker Gecko Grip Level

Black & Decker’s 36-inch Accu Mark level ($27) is designed to perform any basic leveling job with ease. Now you can hang pictures, shelves, decorative items and much more with all the precision of a professional — and none of the guessing and re-guessing that damages walls with repeated drilling or nailing. The BDSL10 is a lightweight, handy home device that’s packed with the high-grade durability and convenience features you expect from an industry leader like Black & Decker.

This model boasts advanced Gecko Grip friction pads to help keep the level steady under pressure. These pads do such a great job of preventing slippage that you can even hold the level with one hand and mark the wall with your other one. But don’t worry — these grabbing nubs won’t leave a scuff, so even the lightest paint is safe.

In addition to the Gecko Grips, the BDSL10 also features two adjustable Accu Mark targets that slide along the center rail. These marks help you hang pictures and shelves with built-in wall mounts or preset hang holes; just line up the marks with the mounts on the back of your pictures, then place the level against the wall and note the spots with a pencil. Using this technique, it’s a cinch to hang heavy mirrors and large portraits, long shelves and big paintings.
