Product Overview


The Bosch Laser Distance Measurer incorporates precision laser measuring technology, where the laser beam does both pointing and measuring for distances up to 225 feet.
  • Seven measuring modes for versatile applications including length, area, volume, min./max., continuous, indirect length, and multi-surface area measurements
  • Four measurement systems including inches, ft. and inches, decimal ft., and metric
  • Four measuring reference points featuring back, front, inside corners or channels with swing-out extension pin, or center of optional tripod (tripod not included)
  • Min./max. measurement mode for accurate measurement to the shortest/longest distance from a fixed reference point
  • Indirect length measurement mode to calculate inaccessible distances that cannot be measured directly (due to obstruction or lack of reflecting surface)
  • Multi-surface area mode calculates the total area of several individual surfaces with a common length or height
  • Precision laser measuring technology allows the laser beam to do both pointing and measuring
  • Built-in bubble vial that provides a visual reference when measuring horizontal distances
  • Pocket-sized at only 4 in. tall
  • 225 ft. Laser Distance Measurer - GLR225
  • Hand Strap

    Great product
    Terrific for measuring large buildings alone. By setting up a reflective surface at building corners, measuring was a snap. The click it makes when taking a measurement is hard to hear on a busy job site. If it was a bit louder that could be helpful. I used the laser pointing feature many times with customers. I am still finding more uses for this product, beyond it original intent.

    No better way to measure inside corners
    I finally decided to buy this tool after two years of deliberating. I have since been very impressed.

    I install blinds and shutters among other things and I frequently have to take accurate measurements in inaccurate windows.

    Two of the best virtues of this tool is taking accurate measurements over longer distances and measuring inside corners.

    When you are trying to measure a ten foot wide window without a helper, you will be glad you have this.

    The measurements are quick, too. I haven't had a measurement take longer than a second, despite what I have read in previous reviews on other sites.

    Better than I thought
    I use this to measure landscapes and many times I am shooting fairly long distances in bright sunlight. That scenario makes it hard to see the laser at times unless I am shooting into the shade. There is a manual sighting arrow on top and it seems to work well but my only complaint is I wish it were easier to see. This is a factory refurbished model so the price was right and if it holds up for a year or more I will be more than pleased. I would recommend this product if you understand the need to work around bright sunlight conditions.

    I have used $300+ professional laser measures for many years and found them to be very useful. While this unit does not have all the bells and whistles of a more expensive unit - it does exactly what I need and at a fraction of the cost.

    Oh, and a handy hint, having read many reviews of this and similar products - if it measures to within 1/16" of your steel tape - it's probably your steel tape that is out, due to expansion or contraction of the steel with the temperature

    Quality Product
    Had to get use to the accuracy. At first I doubted it could be so accurate and after checking numerous times the laser was on target. I can get distances and area calculations easily, accurately and move ahead confidently with my projects. The sales representative suggested the product and I've come to trust the sales and service personnel for their knowledge and suggestions.

    Excellant measuring tool
    I use it to measure long hallways, large areas and small.

    Measures quick and great in tight areas and with the lazer you know exactly where you are measuring too.

    Nothing negative to report.

    much faster than a 100' tape
    I'm a professional land surveyor. I have only had this tool for a couple of weeks, but so far I'm happy with my purchase. Got the reconditioned unit - did not appear used at all. I'm figuring out how many ways I can save time & energy using this instead of a tape. It doesn't get hooked on shrubs, decks, or bldg corners. Makes fast accurate measurements to many types of surfaces.
    Worth every penny.

    We need something to measure distances in the woods. Is this device suitable for this?
    Dick on Sep 5, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: You, would be able to use in the woods. The only thing is the beam must hit something to be operable.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
