Stanley Laser Distance MeasurerNOT FOR RELEASE BEFORE OCTOBER 2012

NEW YORK CITY, NY – JUNE 6, 2012 – Stanley® announced today the introduction of three new laser distance measurers – models STHT77138, STHT77139 and STHT77140 – during its new product luncheon at the Westin New York Hotel. Product Manager Spencer Maheu said, “Through our new technology, we are able to bring functionality to aggressive retail prices, making Stanley Laser Distance Measurers more attractive to both current users and non-users. We are excited to launch our new range of laser distance measurers to support the growth and expansion of this market.” The new lineup automatically calculates distance, area and volume and features a continuous measurement tracking function that helps find the target quickly and easily. Not only do these tools allow one person to measure between 100 and 330 feet without assistance, the measurers’ addition and subtraction features offer a convenient way to calculate in the field using English or Metric, fractional or decimal modes.

The Stanley® Laser Distance Measurer TLM99 – model STHT77138 – measures up to 100 feet (30 meters) and provides accurate readings within +/- 3/32 inches (2 mm). Available at mass retailers, home centers, hardware stores and online retailers in October 2012, this product is expected to sell for approximately $79.99, 20% below the current market opening price point standard of $99. 

The Stanley® Laser Distance Measurer TLM165 – model STHT77139 – measures up to 165 feet (50 meters) and provides accurate readings within +/- 1/16 inches (1.5 mm). The backlit LCD screen clearly displays measurements for quick reference and visibility in working conditions, and stores the last 5 measurements in memory for future reference. For height measurements, when point A and/or B is not accessible, the tool’s Pythagoras helps the user to calculate these tough measurements, and corner-to-corner measurements are easy and accurate with corner stand-off end post. Complete with over-molded housing, this water and debris-resistant tool provides durability and protection even on tough jobsites. Available at mass retailers, home centers, hardware stores and online retailers in October 2012, this product is expected to sell for approximately $129.99.

The Stanley® Laser Distance Measurer TLM330 – model STHT77140 – measures up to 330 feet (100 meters) and provides accurate readings within +/- 1/32 inches (1 mm). In addition to having all of the features of the TLM165, this tool also touts an additional Pythagoras function, and an inclination sensor – an integrated digital leveling device that identifies position for accurate measurements. Available at mass retailers, home centers, hardware stores and online retailers in October 2012, this product is expected to sell for approximately $249.
