When it comes to installing pavers, accuracy is vital.
Set the height of your base & sand up against a fixed edge
Reduces the need for skilled grading labor by using a tool & system

NOTE: Different sized pavers will compact to various depths. Wider joints can also affect compaction. We suggest doing a small test section.
After determining what thickness of paver you are using, simply loosen the knobs on the gauge and slide the plates up or down until the desired measurement (in millimeters) appears in one of the view panels. Line the points of the opposite window up with the mark that makes the two plates parallel. Bring your compacted base material close to its finished grade. Now place the side of the Quick-E-Gauge that says "BASE" onto the fixed surface you want to abutt. Strike off the gravel to produce a perfect final grade.
Next, set your 1" screed pipe, and check your height using the opposite side of the Quick-E-Gauge. The bottom of the sand side of the gauge should just touch the top of your screed rails. After the sand is roughly screeded, go back and use the "SAND" side of the gauge to be sure that your heights are perfect. Please note that the measurements are calculated for use with 1" screed rails. If you choose a different diameter screed rail, you will have to adjust the height of your Quick-E-Gauge accordingly.

Makes setting the base and sand height along existing concrete quick and accurate! What used to take a significant amount of time before now takes a few minutes if even that and its more accurate! After setting the pavers with the packer (with pave tool innovators poly pad!) the pavers are exactly the height you need them to be!
Fast and easy to use, set the tool for your block depth and it is set up great top to provide base and sand layer heights. Once set just pull along surface to match, work great to lay in broader pavers with differing height than main patio!
Bought this grade job on a whim for an upcoming patio project we started. Our old grade rod was work and just not cutting it anymore. This grade rod makes setting up benchmark extremely easy, and any adjustments to grade are easy. It saves a lot of on site math and calculations. We love it.
Quite simply it takes math out of the equation when used properly. For some reason we always end up with the laser target on the joint of the extendable poles we use, there are no joints on this rod making it more accurate. I should have bought this the first time I saw it.
Working off an adjustable zero simplifies shooting grades and makes it easier to teach employees. One less thing to think about when you’re on site that just makes things run more smoothly. If you own a laser level, you should own this product.
