About Bent Metal
We receive many levels for vial replacement that shouldn’t be sent unless the customer is aware there will be charges for bent metal.
We cannot set vials correctly if the Level I-Beam portion (center rail that holds the vials) is bent to a crowned or twisted position. We must replace that metal at cost to the customer. The rails (extensions) also should be straight to render correct readings at the job site.

We charge $10. for return shipping whether the level is repaired or not.
Please help yourself and us by inspecting your level’s metal rails in order to be aware that there will probably be charges to replace the metal if it is bent.

About Shipping Returned Products:
Try not to use a shipping service like what are located in mini-malls and strip centers across the country. Nothing against them personally but we’ve heard horror stories of guys paying more that their level costs to get it back to us for repair. They not only mark up the actual shipping costs paid to UPS but charge outrageously for boxing your level.
Direct outlets of UPS, FEDEX, or even the US Post Office are much more reasonable.

So you don’t have the original box ?
You will when it comes back to you from being repaired

In the meantime:
find a furniture or mattress store near you (they always have lots of big pieces of cardboard in the back room or dumpster out back). Get a piece that is roughly 2 feet longer than your level, 2 shorter pieces will work if your level is really long) and at least 2 feet wide. Try to avoid really heavy stock (it won’t bend easily enough). Stock like or a little heavier than a soda pop flat is good enough.

Lay your level on the cardboard centered end to end but against one of the long axis edges. Tape that long axis edge to the level.
Then roll the level (like you would a hot dog in it’s wrapper) into the cardboard and tape it so it doesn’t unroll.
Fold the overhanging ends (approx. 12” on each end) back towards each other and tape them.
Be sure to include your return address and phone number as we’ll be calling you with questions about your level.
If you forgot to include them just wait about a week and call us to describe your level.
