Ken, the housing that holds the vial is hinged. When opened or closed it rest on the point of a SS set screw. Via the screw, the level can be adjusted for perfect horizontal alignment, in the open and closed position. The quality of the components that make up this system are second to none.
I completly understand the objections about the price, but when considering the prices charged for just the standard made clamp on levels, anywhere from $30-$50 bucks. Then deal with the features that are not user friendly, set-up and actually precisly leveling such a unit, blocks the view of the turret or turret blocks the level.
Actually handling the Accu-Level, there is no comparison, USA made quality, strong, finely machined, superbly anodized, SS hardware, 100% user friendly all the little things that cost money to produce. I think this level may not fill the entire market, but there definetly is a place in the market for this unit. Serious LRH who strive for perfection in their set-ups and shooting are going to be all over this thing. I was a little skeptical, but after using the Accu-Level, I definatly see the justification in the price. It is as good as it gets.
