   If you need a tool that you can use without using your glasses, then this Stanley one inch wide tape measure is the one for you.

About this topic


These come in several different sizes but the most useful length of this tape that I have found out is the 25' footer. You probably will not be able to fit this into your pocket, unless you are wearing bibbed overalls. The pockets in these are a lot bigger and will accommodate a large tape measure such as this one. The outside of this case is made of plastic and the tape itself is made of a very durable metal. The measuring part is painted yellow and had little black marks that spread 1/16" apart. The yellow paint may wear off only after a very long period of time, unless abused and left out in the weather. Then of course the metal will begin to rust. The numbers are larger than most and if you need to use this to reach any high spots, then it will stand straight out 7 or 8 feet in length. This is how rigid the tape measure will stay, with this being so rigid, they also have a locking mechanism that you can use to allow you to use the tape measure all by yourself without having someone else hold the other end. If you do not have anyone to hold the other end, then Stanley has a double riveted metal stainless tang on the free end, to allow you to hook this end of the tape measure onto an object so that this will make it easier for you to take a proper measurement.
