If using two Stock Types you can define the types using square brackets. When the Stock Types are displayed, for example in the Stock screen, the Level 2 Stock Type is displayed with the Level 1 making it easier to track the hierarchy.

Note: Some system types, for example Packaging, do not use the square brackets i.e. [ and ].
