Description:
This is a combination tool that adds a pivoting arm to a standard level, allowing it to be used as a square or bevel. The arm locks from a clever screw-activated mechanism on the side of the level.

Known examples of the production pieces do not use the patented locking mechanism, instead using a more traditional thumbscrew on the arm. They do, however, use the cute and clever heart-shaped cutouts on the arm, where the point of the heart is the indicia.
