First post, be gentle.

12" stair layout speed square, also a great crosscut guide for a circular saw. This set includes Layout Bar for use in determining out-of-square corners when building stairways.

Average price: $21.26

Lowest price since 2016 according to CCC.

What's the layout tool used for? Couldn't see it demonstrated in any pics or in a few YouTube videos. Tia

Edit: Looks like it's used for things like measuring/replicating unsquare/off cuts and quickly marking cuts like you would do on stair risers.
Thank you Jahlapenoez

Yeah, I have 4 Lowes stores within 30 minutes of my house, and they all had a different price for this square. I was lucky that one of them had it for $5.07 (the highest was $11.17). I bought the $5.07 one that had a free store pickup in 3-7 days.
