"My third tape from Stanley used daily when setting out on site in all weather conditions. It's light for its size and is very robust considering its homed in a plastic case, the locking mechanism has never failed and the Spring recoil continues to return the tape into its case unlike other manufacturers tapes purchased, their recoil failed leaving the tape unprotected and unmanageable. It's the firs tape that I have used until the painted numerals wore out before the case or mechanism broke."
"Bought this to replace an old cheap one as the end was moveable. Although the tape feels well made in the hand and works well, I was disappointed to find the end loose on this Stanley product. All tapes I have looked at were the same.
"I was off to see a customer and realised on route I had left my tape behind. I did a quick search on the sat nav for a Screwfix on route, popped in, bought the tape measure and carried on with the journey. The tape measure is perfect and the service in store was quick and efficient."
"It's hard to know what to say when reviewing a tape measure. It's strong points are that it is not one of these flimsy, limp tape measures that will collapse as soon as you extend it beyond 700mm; it is clear and easy to read; it has a Tylon coat that will prevent it from breaking if dropped, and best of all it's 2-for-1 until January 11th 2015."
