Klein Digital Level and Plumber’s Kit Find Correct Angles on Metallic AND Non-Metallic Pipes
The Klein Digital Level features programmable angles for the quick and simple measuring of offset angles and tilts from true level. There’s no doubt that you’ll find this digital level—with its magnetic properties—particularly helpful with metal pipe and conduit. But, what happens when you run into a non-ferrous pipe? No worries, Klein has the Plumber’s Kit to hold the digital level in place when working with PVC, brass, copper, and other non-magnetic materials.
Klein on the Digital Level and Plumbers Kit
Klein’s new Digital Level with Programmable Angles helps address the problems professionals face when trying to find the correct conduit and pipe angles in dimly lit and tight workspaces. The level features pre-programmed commonly-used target pitches, [an] audible alarm, and [a] magnetic base to allow for greater efficiency. All of that paired with the Plumbers Kit (sold separately), for wrapping around non-magnetic pipes, conduit, or other objects, makes this the ideal level for professionals regardless of the work environment.

What’s the Big Deal?
The main talking point here is the programmable angles featured on the Klein Digital Level. This looks particularly handy when it comes to making pipe offsets or otherwise bending pipe.
Basically, you can select any of the pre-programmed target pitches – 1/8″, 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″ per foot – or set your target angle on the reverse contrast display. When you’ve reached your target, the Klein Digital Level fires off an audible alarm as well as a visual notification by way of a color-changing LCD.
The Klein 935DAGL Digital Level measures 0º to 90º, 0º to 180º, or dual axis bullseye ranges. In bullseye orientation, the digital level will help you find your x- and y-axis accurately.
This digital level features a strong magnetic base and V-groove edges to help hold the unit in proper alignment with the metal pipe.
But, what if your job for the day doesn’t have anything to do with metal conduit or piping? Klein has a solution to help you work with PVC, copper, brass, or any other non-ferrous materials. The optional Plumber’s Kit works with the digital level, providing you with two flexible and adjustable silicone straps that hold fit to PVC pipes between 1″ to 6″ outer diameter. They can also stretch to fit circumferences of 18″.
You can pick up the Klein Digital Level for $59.97 at most tool retailers, either online or in-store. It comes with a 2-year warranty. For more information about it, click here.
