Place the Hawkeye laser level on a flat surface, such as a wall. This tool is ideal to use to hang multiple objects in a straight line. It is more effective than a traditional torpedo-style level because it can be set up once and left for the duration of the project.
Adjust the level until its bubbles are showing that it is perfectly level, either horizontally or vertically. Once you've leveled it, hold it firmly in place against the wall.
Push two tacks through the level's mounting holes. The tacks will sink into the drywall and hold the level in place on the wall. If using the level on a wall that is too hard to puncture with tacks, have an assistant hold the level in place. If you're working on a wall with metal framing, the magnetic panel on the bottom of the level may hold it in place.
Press the laser level's power button to send a laser beam across the wall. The laser line will provide you with a constant line, allowing you to make several nail holes to mount multiple picture frames in a straight line, for example.
Turn the laser level on its 360-degree base if you wish to create a laser line that is any angle other than horizontal or vertical. This application may be helpful if you wish to hang multiple objects in a 45-degree angle line, such as up a staircase.
Things You Will Need
