Lefty/Righty Tape Measure
Posted November 4, 2013
Nice product. Looks good and provides an excellent way to always have your tape measurement available to you, regardless of which way (right or left) you are measuring something. However, I wish they had reversed the order in which the measurements are provided on the tape. As the measurements are currently arrayed, the measurement you need always appears along the BOTTOM edge of the tape. To use the measurement you want at the TOP of the tape, you simply look at the top of the tape where the same measurements are given, but at that position the measurements are upside down and backwards. Not the biggest problem in the world, but, darn it, it would have been so simple to have reversed the order.

I like the scale and the compact size. I used it for about a month and then discovered the tab at the end of the tape was not calibrated correctly. When you pull the tape using the tab from the end of the board, it was 1/8" short over 12". I compared it against two other tapes and against a steel rule to confirm it was this tape. Useless.Editor's note: Our customer service team at 800-376-7856 will be able to assist you with a replacement for the defective tape Bernie.

I didn't buy this for the lefty/righty feature, I bought it because it had the incremental markings such as 5/8, 3/4, 7/8 etc. Many tapes measures just have the lines and as I get up there in years the eyes don't work as good as they use to. So based on that I'm very happy with it. It's also much sturdier than the cheaper ones I've acquired over the years. I'm happy with the purchase.

I purchased one of these about a year ago. This is the only tape measure I use. I like being able to get measurements going both ways without having to twist my head around and read it or swapping sides of the table. This is just a good sturdy tape measure.
