"I used this post level to install metal posts for a pair of 3ft high driveway gates, when the posts had set and I hung the gates they were spot on. Came with magnetic strips useful when using on metal posts and an elastic band to secure to the posts, would recommend this as it made the job so much easier as i was working on my own, these are an extra pair of hands."
"Extremely useful for setting out posts level and straight. Only drawback is that you need to use an elastic band to hold it to the post for adjustment so really you need two people to do the job but it was well worth it to get a top quality straight finish to each post."
"For a few pounds, you strap the level on with an elastic band (supplied) and you can instantly see both sides of your post. From there it's easy to make adjustments without having to hold a typical straight level.
When I checked with the long level, all was perfect.
If you like a small cheap gadget that actually makes your life easier, this is for you!"
"I have always struggled to get posts level using ordinary spirit levels - so as I was installing some new garden fencing I bought this post leveller - made life a lot easier when putting in a post single handed. My only criticism is that it comes with an elastic band to hold it in place on the post - but my broke first time I used it. Overall a very useful tool when putting up fencing and great value for money"
"The magnets tended to grip the fence spike in slightly the wrong position resulting in a wrong reading. I soon learnt to push the device hard into place, but it was quite fiddly and needed constant adjustment. You also have to remove the device from the spike between each hammer blow because otherwise it disrupts the bubbles too much and you have to wait 10 mins for them to settle down. Overall conclusion was that although this looked like a good idea, I'd have been better off doing things the old way with a small sprit level, and saving the money for a beer."
"This does not even come close to 'getting what you pay for' which is saying something as it's cheap to begin with. The level bubbles on the side for vertical levelling were OK, but not set brilliantly, which for most of the levels use is probably fine. However the horizontal level useful for string levelling was so far out of alignment I couldn't bring myself to live with the £4 I spent on it."
"Poor quality product. The elastic band that holds the level to a post snaps very quickly. At least one of the vials was out. The product only lasted a couple of hours before it went back and was accepted back by screwfix"
"when it came it was in bits so I put it back together. When i went to use it I found it was far to flexible to give true readings and I compared it against a normal level it was out, unless you took time to ensure it was flush against the post ie when I pushed it in one side it moved out the other so took too much time to get it in the right position . If it was metal it would have been better . To be honest had it been more expensive I would have sent it back .I used 100mm by 100mm 2.7m posts . try getting an elastic band round one of those . this is my honest opinion ."
