im after a tripod that is low enough to set the laser level so that the laser will hit sockets at 450mm, any recommendations?

Got my mate to weld square section of steel tube onto a small plate. Stands nicely on floor and good for the level magnet to stick to :D

You could always get a telescopic laser level pole that runs from floor to ceiling.

There are actually some really snazzy articles,associated with the GoPro gear. I think my lad has a small,light,folding tripod for his GoPro,which would double for low level work.

I still use an ancient self-levelling Hilti job,which has done an incredible amount of setting out,for me. No grid,or green carry-on,but very reliable.

At about the height mentioned,i would always use Tel's suggestion,ie summat heavy. In my experience,nothing gets kicked quicker on site,than a low tripod:)

Me pal was on a large crawler crane,putting steelwork up,at the Trafford Centre,and some surveyor set his 8 grand laser rig and tripod,behind his tracks,in the exclusion area...the poor dude had to wait 4 hours before me pal tracked forwards,to reveal what was left...(not much)
