Review: Sola Cordinat Designer C80 Level

The Austrian based Sola level company makes high grade builder levels for the professional market, but their Cordinat C80 Designer Level may be that perfect all-in-on level you need as a homeowner.

This specific style of level is designed to bring efficiency and ease to wall mounted objects with multiple hanging points by doing these simple steps.

  1. With your tape ruler, measure and mark the center on the wall where your object will hang.
  2. Place the fixed center star of the Cordinat level on that mark.
  3. Based on the hanging points of your object, move the adjustable markers to their proper wall anchor locations and make those additional marks.

Now, all your wall decor, bath hardware, and wall mount tv hardware that fits within the dimensions of this level will be a breeze to hang. That’s always a plus for any DIY project!
