Product Reviews

Highly accurate, durable and ergonomic tape measure with metric and imperial scales. Impact resistant case, true-zero 3-rivet hook, spring return mechanism and bi-material design for comfort and grip. The Tylon blade coating gives greater durability than standard lacquer, while the matt finish reduces glare or reflection when reading measurements.

Average tape

"Tape started out okay, but end quickly became warped due to strong recoil spring causing end to hit body, then almost useless in use. So, okay for infrequent users."

"There's a reason these tapes are so cheap, the steel is wafer thin, cracks show up early on and if you get it wet then its the end of the road for your nice shiny Stanley tape.
Stanley used to make only good quality tapes from high quality steel but those days are gone and unless you're buying a Stanley FAT MAX you are unfortunately, buying Stanley rubbish."
