The new Crescent Ex6 Layout Square performs double duty through an innovative design feature, providing the functionality of a 7-inch square and a 12-inch square in one product.

The Ex6 (product No. LSSP6) features a patent-pending foldout extension arm, extending the straight edge from 6 to 12 inches. The company says that an easy-to-access thumb lock makes it easy to swing the extension arm out and then lock it back into place. Made from solid, lightweight aluminum, the laser-etched markings and corrosion-resistant finish provide greater visibility that won’t fade over time.

The Ex6 Layout Square is the flagship product in Crescent’s new line of measuring and marking squares, which includes:

  • Combination Squares: 6- and 12-inch options (L06CS and L12CS), with laser-etched numbers and an extruded head for improved accuracy and durability
  • Carpenter Squares: 8×12-inch and 16×24-inch size options (L0812US and L1624CS), steel construction with durable protective coated dual-sided markings and increments from inches to 1/16th
  • Framing Square: 16×24 inches (L1624RS), lightweight aluminum construction with durable protective coated dual-sided markings; and
  • Drywall T-Square: 48 inches (L48DS), aluminum construction with bolstered joint between blade and head for durability and lasting accuracy

Crescent is a brand of Apex Tool Group.
