Linear Extension Angular Extension
During the use, the instrument has to be supported in a way to not alter the results of measurements.
The optional accessories, thanks to the fast-joint mechanism, allow the user to carry out measurements by using only one hand. With the other hand, the user is able to drive the opening/closing device.
There are two versions available: the Linear Extension, for measures at 30 or 50 cm and the Angular Extension, for measures from 1.25 m to 2.5 m. This also requires use of the Straight Extension.
