How to Use a 360 Laser Level

How to Use a 360 Laser Level

A 360 degree laser level is a powerful tool that simplifies leveling and alignment tasks, offering a complete circle of laser projection for comprehensive coverage. Whether you're working on construction projects, interior design, or any task that demands accuracy, mastering a 360-degree laser level is essential. This guide will walk you through the steps to use a 360 degree laser level effectively and efficiently.

Selecting the Right 360 Degree Laser Level:

Choose a laser level with features that suit your specific needs. Consider factors such as working range, accuracy, self-leveling capabilities, and additional functionalities like pulse mode for outdoor use. Below, we will use DOVOH High Visibility Laser Level H3-360G to demonstrate how to use a 360 degree laser level.

Packing List:
1 x H3-360G Laser Level
1 x Magnetic Bracket
1 x Enhance Glasses
1 x Green Target Plate
1 x Hard Toolbox
1 x Battery Charger
2 x 7.4V 2600mAh Li-ion Batteries
1 x Adapter w/ Type C Cable
1 x User Manual

Mount the Laser Level:

Place the laser level on a stable and level surface. If the laser level comes with a tripod, use it for added stability. H3-360G Laser Level is compatible with a tripod's 1/4" or 5/8" threaded mount.

H3-360G also has a multifunctional magnetic bracket, allowing the laser level to be fixed on a metal surface, hanging on a nail, or a flatboard.

Selecting Working Mode:

The laser level can work in two modes: self-leveling mode and manual mode.

Slide the pendulum to an unlocked position to turn on the laser. Now, the laser is working on self-leveling. The laser level will auto-level within 4° of the leveling angle and give an alarm when out of 4° of the leveling angle.

Keep the pendulum locked and long press the power button to work in manual mode. You can lock the laser line at any angle in this mode.

Switch Horizontal or Vertical Laser Line

H3-360G is a 3-plane laser level with one horizontal laser line and two vertical laser lines. Press the “H” or “V” button to select the horizontal or vertical laser you need. The magnetic bracket allows you to adjust the laser level up and down, and at 360 degrees, you can project the laser line on the aligning objects easily.

Plumb Spot Function:

Plumb spot is also available for H3-360G. Let the laser level work on self-leveling mode, switch on both two vertical laser lines, you will get two cross points on the ceiling and on the floor. These two cross points are perpendicular and can be used as plumb spots.

Advanced Tips and Techniques:

Using a Laser Receiver:

Consider using a laser receiver for tasks at longer distances or in outdoor environments. These devices detect the laser signal even when it's not visible to the naked eye, extending the working range of the laser level.

When the laser works on self-leveling or manual mode, short press the Power button to activate the pulse mode. H3-360G is compatible with any brand laser receiver with a 10KHz frequency. The working range can be extended up to 197ft when working with a receiver.

Combining with Other Tools:

Enhance your workflow by combining the 360-degree laser level with other tools like a digital level or a theodolite. This comprehensive approach ensures precise measurements and alignments.

Caring for Your 360 Degree Laser Level:

Regular Cleaning:

Keep the laser level clean, especially the optics and laser diode. Dust and debris can interfere with the accuracy of the laser projection.

Storage and Transportation:

Make sure the pendulum is locked when the laser is not in use. This will prevent the pendulum swing and reduce the risk of damage from vibrations.

Store the laser level in a protective case when not used, and secure it during transportation to prevent damage. Follow manufacturer guidelines for temperature and humidity conditions.


Mastering the use of a 360 degree laser level opens up a world of possibilities for accurate leveling and alignment tasks. By understanding its features, following proper setup procedures, and employing specific techniques for different applications, you can leverage the full potential of this advanced tool. Whether you're in construction, interior design, or any industry that demands precision, the 360 degree laser level is a reliable companion for achieving accurate and efficient results.
