Widely used for photo records, thanks to clearly marked measurements, rugged housing and ability to easily remove it from case
AURORA, IL, March 18, 2013 – Keson Industries, a leading supplier and manufacturer of innovative, high-quality, measuring and marking tools, makes a vertical reading rod perfect for automotive repair, insurance appraisal and constructions professionals. Known as a pocket rod, these 6 ½-foot (2m) leveling and grading rods are compact and are much more convenient than any full size measuring rod.
They are available in three different scales: PR618 (standard feet and inches), PR2M (Metric) and PR610 (Engineer’s). The PR618 is the most popular among body shops and appraisers because they are ideal for assessing vehicle damage without having to carry a full-size rod. They are also frequently used for foundation work, grading, and swimming pool excavations.
Beyond easy portability, Keson Pocket Rods feature a:
“Markings on the Pocket Rod are clearly visible for photographing, and my firm has used it for years to document appraisal work for damaged vehicles,” said Gregory J. Lombardo, president and CEO, National Appraisal & Adjustment Service. “No other product can be seen clearly in pictures while capturing the object behind it.”
This unique grading rod is compact like a tape measure. Simply remove the nylon-coated steel blade from the case and you have a convenient 6 1/2 foot vertical-reading leveling rod. Each case has a built-in target. When finished, just slide back into the case. It’s ideal for checking a grade without having to carry a full-size rod.
The Pocket Rod is ideal for foundation work, grading, swimming pools and construction photo records. The nylon-coated blade protects the graduations from moisture and wear. Easy-to-read numbers are printed on both sides, and the blade also features a built-in target for sighting. Also, it has a heavy-duty end hook. When you’re through, the blade stores in its own sturdy case. Perfect for photographs that require scale. A police and insurance adjuster favorite!
