Not a bad idea! I just would want to also carry around a big tripod. What is the situation that would require a tripod?

Rough work I screw it to the wall, in finishing I'll set it on something like a ladder step and put stuff under it to get my height.

Why not just put it on your Home Depot bucket?

I want it to line up devices precisely on tile walls. I'm a picky SOB. That's why they pay me the big money :) .

And the area is finished, so you can't secure it to the wall?

In that case, I would just put the laser on my ladder, shoot the beam and use that to measure a couple inches off the line to get my location.

I'm picky that way too.. because cabinets and counters are never perfectly level and then I get blamed for devices being off. So I use a laser level, so I can't take any heat.. my devices are PERFECT.

You can get a mini camera tripod for twenty bucks. Might be worth a try :) .
