Backlit monitor mountable spirit level

A co-worker made me this spirit level for my monitor which has a mount hole for a 1/4-20 screw so I can mount it to my DP7-HB monitor.


Some of our night scenes were so dark that I couldn't see my level, so this is what we came up with. It uses a level from McMaster Carr for a couple bucks.


It's angled back towards the operator and is shielded enough to not be seen in reflections even of tabled pretty far. It also has ND and diffusion on it so the led isn't very bright or spotty, and the level is really easy to see.


I put a ptap connector on it and run it off of the AB mount on the back of the monitor.


He's selling these fairy cheaply if anyone is interested.


The website is a work in progress but you get the idea.

Mine showed up and I used it that night. Great item. One thing I would suggest. Is for version two. Put a power switch on it. Or make the power cable detachable. Either way it's really a nice piece and works great. Thanks again!
