The glass level vial is composed of a glass outer covering and an unfilled inner liquid. The curved surface of the inner wall has a certain curvature. There are also symmetrically displayed scales on the glass level vial. When the level vial is tilted, the bubble in the level vial moves to the rising side, and it determined whether it is horizontal by seeing whether the bubble is within the scale range.
