STANLEY® Launches TLM40 Pocket Laser Distance Measurer – For Fast, Accurate Measuring Results

  • Working range of 12 metres, providing accurate distance calculations of +/-6mm at 10 metres
  • Continuous measurement ‘tracking’ function finds distance from a target quickly and easily, and facilitates measurements in out-of-reach areas
  • Compact, lightweight and pocket-friendly with one-button, point-and-click operation for ease of use
  • Rechargeable internal battery allows long-lasting usability, with USB charging option
  • Black screen with white characters ensures maximum visibility in brighter conditions
  • IP54 rated for protection against dust and moisture, plus rubber over-mould for extra grip

Designed to be ultra-portable and efficient to use, the new STANLEY® TLM40 Pocket Laser Distance Measurer combines outstanding accuracy with simple one-button, point-and-click operation. Offering a 12 metre working range, this versatile tool delivers precise calculations (+/- 6mm at 10 metres) and features a continuous measurement ‘tracking’ function that rapidly locates and displays the distance from a target, and is extremely useful for capturing measurements in out-of-reach areas.

Ideal for a broad variety of trade applications including kitchen and bathroom installation, tiling, panelling and decorating, the TLM40 is effortless to operate, and incorporates a black LCD screen with clear white characters, enabling superior visibility even in brighter working environments.

Compact and light in weight, the TLM40 fits neatly into a pocket or toolbag, and thanks to its built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, is always ready for use when it is needed. The internal battery delivers excellent runtime (up to 1,000 measurements on a full charge), saving users considerable time and effort. This next-generation laser distance measurer also features a USB charging port for added convenience.

Dependable and engineered to last, the TLM40 has been manufactured to the highest standards, and has received an official IP54 rating, ensuring it is protected against moisture and dust ingress for a longer working life. Furthermore, it is equipped with a strong rubber over-mould, providing the user with extra grip and control.

Darren Barber, Marketing Director at STANLEY, said, “Built for speed, accuracy and productivity, the TLM40 enables trade professionals to measure further than they can reach – that’s to say, they can measure into the distance within a 12 metre working range. Due to its minimal dimensions and weight, users can keep the TLM40 tucked away in a pocket or pouch ready for use when required, while the integral rechargeable battery ensures outstanding runtime and efficiency at all times. This flexible tool allows easy, one-handed capture of measurements, especially those that would potentially be difficult to achieve with a manual tape measure. Simply ‘point and click’! And thanks to its robust and reliable STANLEY construction, IP54 protection and a highly visible screen, the TLM40 is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. This is definitely a must-have item in every pro’s toolkit.”
