Frequently Asked Questions:
- Can the laser be seen in the bright sunlight? Unfortunately, the bright sunlight will filter out most lasers. The longer the line is stretched, the more the power is dispersed, and the fainter the line becomes. However, you can effectively project 2-3' start lines, even in brighter conditions.
- How long does the battery charge last? A fully charged 18650 3.7v battery will last +2 hours when left on continuously. You can purchase additional batteries from the website
- Do you provide a product warranty? Yes, each laser and remote carries a warranty for 90 days. However, we pride ourselves in ensuring your satisfaction with the product.

My general steps to assess aim on a straight putt are…
- Select a straight putt at a length of 8-10 feet. I typically have my student select the straight putt.
- I then instruct my student to step through their normal routine to execute a putt. If they normally use a line on the ball, have them use the line, etc.
- When they are set at address, ready to stroke, and acknowledge that they are aligned to the hole, I secure the putter with my left hand, move the ball, square the laser to the putter face, and shoot the light.
- The laser base is designed to shoot parallel to the ground with all three bumper legs attached. SAM users find this helpful to calibrate their system. For outdoor use, simply remove the front bumper leg by unscrewing. With the platform squared against the putter face, and back legs secured on the ground, simply tilt the front end up and down to trace the path on the surface of the green, or use the Target Backboard.
- I typically repeat this process at least three times to establish consistency and trend. Normally, if someone aims left, they consistently aim left, and vice versa. I have my student close their eyes on each attempt. I do not want them to see the results until I have established a trend. If you allow them to look, they of course will attempt to improve their misalignment on each following attempt.
- I also observe their body and eye-line alignment. Typically, if someone aims left, their body and eye-line is aligned left, and vice versa.
- Advanced – repeat the same process for breaking putts. Have your player identify their aim point, whether a spot located in their perceived path, or a linear spot near the hole (example, two inches left of hole).
Recalibration – it is possible for the accuracy of the laser to be altered due to a strong jarring, such as dropping it laser side down on concrete. The laser can easily be recalibrated. First, remove the hex set screw from the bottom of the base. Laser mount will need to be pried loose, as a small amount of epoxy is used to secure the base. Reattach the laser base with the hex set screw. Using a 4’ builders T-square or similar tool, square the T to a wall, square the laser against the same wall. Project the laser and tilt the base up and down running the laser point along the ground. Next, adjust the laser base until the laser point runs along the edge of the 4’ ruler, tighten and secure. Very easy and very accurate.

- LO v.III green laser secured in laser mount
- 18650 3.7v rechargeable battery
- USB cord
- Wireless ON/OFF Remote Control
- Carrying case
- Mount LO v.III laser to tripod and you are ready to go.
- Push the rubber ON/OFF button located on the rear of the battery cap (tube) to operate.
- The wireless remote should operate effectively from +15 feet 360 degrees surrounding unit. To operate remote, remove the protective tab by pulling. I recommend you reinsert the tab after usage to ensure battery power is not used. THERE IS NO NEED TO RAISE OR EXTEND THE ANTENNA FOR REMOTE USE.
- There is a blue light near the base of the antennae indicating the unit is ON. In the ON position, the Wireless Remote will operate ON/OFF. Be sure to turn the unit OFF (note blue indicator light is OFF) after usage. If the blue indicator light is ON and laser light is OFF, it will continue to use battery charge.
- RECHARGING THE BATTERY My recommendation is to remove the orange/black 18650 battery from the laser and recharge it directly. The built-in USB port is located at the positive end of the battery. Use the micro-USB cord provided, or use a standard battery charger.
- Recharging battery steps using the external USB Port 1.) plug USB cord into power cube 2.) with Laser ON, plug USB cord into USB port located near antenna 3.) Pink hue indicator light indicates charging. 4.) Turn laser OFF using remote 5.) charge until indicator light turns a blue hue.
- PLEASE USE CARE INSERTING USB CORD INTO USB PORT. Make sure USB configuration (male and female) match and are aligned.
- Similar to your cell phone, you can connect the USB cord and run virtually AC/DC. Use the external USB port.
- Project start lines, entry lines, and laser “chalk line”.
- Use the Wireless Remote to strategically turn laser ON/OFF to hone and assess visualization skills. Ideal conditions are early morning, late afternoon, overcast skies, and shadows. I personally prefer projecting shorter start lines (2’) for breaking putts to allow the imagination to visualize the complete path. Shorter lines can be seen in brighter sun conditions.
A few helpful tips about lasers...
- Lasers best operate in mild conditions. Extreme cold or heat may weaken the projection results. For example, do not store the unit in a hot car, or trunk.
- NEVER point a laser pointer of any power at anybody. Do NOT point at aircraft; Big Brother will come looking for you.
- Avoid "mirror like" (specular) targets and NEVER - NEVER stare into a pointer! Also, NEVER view a laser beam using an optical instrument, such as binoculars, microscope, etc.
- Laser are not toys and should not be used by small children.
