Additional functions make the proven Quigo cross line laser from Bosch now even more user friendly: an improved laser diode increases the visibility of the laser lines for the user and allows working distances of up to seven meters compared to the previous five meters. A new feature is the integrated tilt function: if the user tilts the Quigo to the right or left parallel to the projection surface, the projected laser cross automatically tilts at the same angle. This opens up additional applications for the user, such as alignment of railings, diagonal lines or patterns. A red flashing LED indicates to the operator when the laser cross is not in automatic leveling mode. This mode automatically equalizes surface unevenness by up to four degrees and can be used whenever exact horizontal or vertical lines are required. The state of charge of the battery is also indicated by an LED which is continuously lit red if the remaining runtime is less than 1 hour.

If a tripod or the supplied MM2 universal mount is used, the Quigo is ready for use even more quickly thanks to the quick-mount adaptor, which can be screwed onto the tripod or clamp with just a few twists. The Quigo itself can then be attached with just one click.

Compact entry level model for decorative DIY work
Tried and tested product features such as the high leveling accuracy of 0.8 millimeters per meter or automatic self leveling in less than six seconds have been retained. The compact cross line laser allows even inexperienced laser users to carry out precise work with right-angled lines. The main applications of the Quigo include, in particular, decorative work such as decorating walls and surfaces with patterns and lines, but also typical DIY work such as hanging up pictures or mounting shelves. It is very simple to use: when the protective flap is opened, two intersecting laser lines project an exact 90-degree angle onto the wall. This allows quick and easy alignment of drilling points or pictures for example.

Functional features and fixing the instrument
With a size of 6.5 x 6.5 x 6.5 centimeters and a weight of 250 grams, the Quigo is particularly handy and space-saving. Its protective flap also serves as a transport restraint: when it is closed, the pendulum with laser diode is locked inside. The supplied MM2 universal mount can be attached by means of the clamp foot and adjusting screw to all objects with a material thickness of between one and six centimeters, for example to chair backs, stepladders, cabinet doors or shelves. And the clamp does not leave any marks even on delicate surfaces.

The new Quigo will be available at retail outlets from September 2012 onwards at the recommended retail price of 59.99 euros including VAT. Included are two 1.5V AAA batteries, the MM2 clamp and the quick-mount adaptor. The instrument and its accessories come in an attractive metal box.
