Following the success of the brand's 50th Anniversary special-edition Powerlock tape, Stanley is launching four new additions to its selection of measuring and layout tools.

Stanley has adapted two of its most popular measuring products into miniature formats, ideal for smaller jobs when a whole toolbox of kit is unnecessary. The new Mini Chalk Line is less than half the size of standard chalk reels but just as functional, with 9m of precision line, making it ample for most applications. With 28g capacity, 50 lines per refill, and a 3:5:1 gear retractor with fast rewind, this tool is small but mighty.

The Mini FatMax tape keychain is the ultimate in useful pocket-sized tools and despite its small size, it includes 2m of tape, making it ideal for small jobs. Its lightweight keychain format means tradesmen can take it anywhere and will soon wonder what they did without it.

Stanley has also launched two new cross line laser models, perfect for indoor use and built to last with ABS/TPR construction. These new models include multiple attachment points and can be fixed to a number of different surfaces, including architrave, window sills, shelves and poles, leaving users with two hands free to work with. Stanley's pendulum mounted self-levelling laser technology means that both models are able to self-correct, removing the need for a spirit level.

The Cubix cross line laser is able to self-correct up to 4 degrees. It is effective indoors up to 8m, with accuracy up to 0.8mm/m, and is supplied with a universal mounting bracket. It projects a cross onto the wall directly in front of where it is placed, meaning it is the perfect tool for tiling or hanging wallpaper.

The Cube cross line laser includes a 90 degree pendulum mounted laser. This model is self-correcting up to 4 degrees, with an out-of-level indicator, and is effective indoors up to 10m, accurate up to 0.5mm.
