Nowadays almost everyone does DIY although sometimes we may use tools that we have never used or we are not comfortable using. Drilling on walls or cutting with electric saws can make the user think twice if he is drilling or cutting in the right place. Piko is the first combination of aligning and measuring tools. It has been made considering what DIYers usually do on walls and how do they do it. The fact of merging a laser measuring and levelling in such a basic and minimalistic way brings a positive impact on how easily DIYers mark on walls being confident that the spot that they have just marked with a pencil is the right place, encouraging them to do more DIY tasks knowing that they won’t as many mistakes.
