"There isnt much to put about this, as it simply does what t is meant to do.
With it being plastic its easy to clean .
The elastic strap makes it easy to stay on the post while you fit it."

Indispensable..

"There's not a lot to say about this tool really - it's made of plastic, sturdy, has all the bubble levels you could need to make sure a post or other upright is vertical.
It even comes with the elastic band to secure it around the post and magnets on the back if you're putting up something metal."

Excellent gadget
8 Mar 2013
By GSJ1
, Derby
"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."

Very useful for setting posts
17 Jun 2011
By Anton
, London
"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."

Simple idea
23 Nov 2009

"I've not needed to use this post level yet, but will do next year.
The idea is so simple and will make setting posts much easier and quicker.
Well worth £4 in my opinion.

"Makes life a lot easier ensuring the fence posts are plumb from all sides.
You can get more expensive levels to do the same job but would need alot more money.

Amazing For The Price
27 Aug 2008
By Deejay999
, Leicester
"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!"

Easy way to level posts
11 May 2012
By Grandaddy
, Oswestry
"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"

"This proved a rough guide to level a post but one level was a bit out of true. It's only cheap and sort-of did the job, but I'd use it again if I thought it was going to be a better level."

Doesn't add value
11 Aug 2013
By LearnOnJob
, South East
"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."

Complete rubbish
11 Jan 2014
By Knobsy
, London
"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.

didnt work for me
13 Aug 2012
By septimus
, BexHill
"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 .
"
