Measurement: Meet Your Match with the Bosch GLM 15

Bosch revolutionizes measuring category with pocket-size laser measure that delivers big on simplicity, accuracy

Las Vegas, Nev., February 3, 2015 – Small doesn’t mean modest and Bosch is proving just that by offering a small tool with a big attitude – and even bigger capabilities. With its simple, one-button operation and pocket-sized precision, the GLM 15 laser measure will change the way the world measures.

“The GLM 15 has what we call ‘exactitude,’” said Brian Vranek, product manager, laser measuring, BOSCH POWER TOOLS. “It delivers on our goal of providing pros and consumers alike a spot-on measuring tool that’s portable, accessible and uncompromising in accuracy. This small tool has a big attitude because it gets big results.”

With pocket-sized precision, GLM 15 can go where measuring tape can’t. Bending tape to get into corners or asking for a second set of hands to hold the tape in place is no longer necessary.

“Whether you’re a residential or commercial remodeler working on a project bid, a painter estimating supplies, a real estate agent sizing up a home or an installer making space for new cabinets – the possibilities with this tool are endless,” said Vranek.


The GLM 15 redefines simplicity. With a single touch of a button, the unit turns on and defaults to always-on measuring, perfect for walk-off measurements. Click the button again to record that measurement. And when you’re done, press and hold that same button one more time to turn it off.


When close doesn’t cut it, the GLM 15 delivers quick and reliable accuracy. “It doesn’t get any easier than the GLM 15,” said Vranek. “As soon as the tool is turned on, it’s calculating precise distances up to 50 feet and within ⅛ of an inch  accuracy.”

Bosch engineered an exclusive, state-of-the-art solution for smaller laser components. With its patented technology, the GLM 15 fits in a pocket to go anywhere. A square, flat design makes the product easy to use on any surface. Rest it on a flat surface and measure in any direction with the display screen pointed the same way. Measurements start at the back of the tool for easy distance marking.

The GLM 15 is available at authorized dealers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $49. To find out more or to locate a dealer, visit or call 877-BOSCH-99. Check out for construction tips and videos.
