Ryobi Tek4 RP4010 Professional Laser Distance Measure Review

Ryobi Laser Distance Measurer Review RP4010

If one tool stands out from the Tek4 entourage, it is the Tek4 Professional Laser Distance Measure. Now the last time I checked, the word “Measure” was traditionally a verb, but Ryobi uses it like it would for Tape Measure. In this case, however, the measure isn’t using tape – it’s using a high-intensity red laser that’s accurate to just 1/16-inch. I’m not sure which was more impressive, the 1/16-inch accuracy or the fact that I could take this product and measure two-thirds the distance of a football field. We tried it out on a variety of applications, both indoors and out and found it to be very consistently within 1/16 of an inch of our reference tape.
