Sometimes your DIY projects don't require something as long and finicky as a tape measure, so the Trimline is a much smaller scale alternative. The tiny utensil assists you in making markings along the edges of various items so that you can more easily create cut lines and determine where to hammer in hardware.

At just over 5 centimeters in length and about 3 by 2 in width and depth, the compact implement holds your pencil in the perfect spot to delineate scribe heights of 1/4-inch, 3/8-inch, 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch, depending on the orientation. Simply set down the Trimline with your scribbler inserted and run it along a straight and flat surface to section off an even edge precisely. Made of aluminum by Quirky, this handy instrument is easy to store and certainly embodies the durability to coexist amidst your other tools.
