Bosch BLAZE™ GLM 20 Laser Measure Offers Pocket-Size Precision with Backlit Screen

Laser measure that captures distances up to 65 ft. in just one second is first product to be included in Bosch BLAZE product family

Mt. Prospect, IL – The simplicity of the traditional tape measure for longer measurements has met its match in the Bosch pocket-sized laser measure that can pinpoint distances in just seconds. The Bosch BLAZE GLM 20 represents the latest addition to the company’s laser measure offering, boasting features that include an advanced backlit screen, measurement of up to 65 feet and accuracy within +/- 1/8 inch.

The Bosch BLAZE GLM 20 is the first laser measure introduced under the company’s BLAZE product family. Bosch BLAZE laser measures are designed to set the industry standard for technical innovation, size, speed and ease of use. In addition, Bosch BLAZE laser measures are sized for convenience, fitting conveniently either in a pocket or on a tool belt – which makes them easy to access and faster to use than using a tape measure for longer measurements. Bosch BLAZE laser measures are the small, simple way to get cutting-edge accuracy.

“Our goal is to utilize our exclusive technology and user-need understanding in the Bosch BLAZE laser measure line,” said Stephanie Dahl, product manager, measuring tools, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “Our goal is to utilize our exclusive technology and user-need understanding in the Bosch BLAZE laser measure line.

Measure On

Simplicity and ease of use provide the inspiration for the Bosch BLAZE GLM 20. With a single touch of a button, the unit turns on and begins real-time measurement. Default real-time measurement adjusts automatically the closer to or farther from the target the user is – providing walk-off results just like a tape measure. Click the button once more to record the distance in the device’s internal memory. Once the measurement is complete, press and hold the same button to turn the laser measure off.

The Bosch BLAZE GLM 20 laser measure is ideal for hard-to-reach places in dark corners thanks to its backlit display. That makes for easy and convenient viewing in all applications, which eliminates guesswork and increases productivity.

The Bosch BLAZE GLM 20 weighs only 0.2 lbs. with a length of 4 inches, so it can fit comfortably in hand or pocket. The laser measure’s square, flat design makes the Bosch BLAZE GLM 20 easy to use on any surface and offers ready-anywhere portability.
