Question about Cst Stanley 77189 FatMax PB2 SelfLeveling Laser Plumb Bob

Open Question

My stanley Fat Max 77-189 laser plumb bob will not emit a strong laser light. With brand new batteries, I can barely see a red light when looking inside. It has worked well in the past but not now. I use it intermittently..About every 3 months or so. All contacts with batteries are clean.

SOURCE: looking for instruction manual for Stanley Fat Max

The manual is available at the Stanley support site:!PAGETYPE?sq=FatMax%2b77-189&sc=2&sf=101113&sg=1&st=405165&documentid=342296&action=view . The direct link is:!DOWNLOAD?entryid=342296&attachid=29375 (but I'm not sure this will work).

If you have problems with those links, start at:!PAGETYPE?category=2 . Enter 77-189 in the search box and then click on the link.

I hope this helps.

Red light would not go out and beep would not stop when moving finder across wall.

I had this problem as well. The solution was to replace the 9 volt battery that it runs on. The beep was much louder and it calibrated correctly. Apparently the old battery was enough to make the beeping sound but not strong enough to emit the energy required to penetrate the drywall.

Fat max laser is in inches need feet

Press and hold the "+ - units" button and hold for over one second. It should then let you select your units of measure. In this case it should be the second selection, which is "0.00 ft". If you lost your owners manual, you can download one at If you find this helpful, please rank the solution.
