4/29/2008When I first saw this tape,...

Guest from Niles, MI Posted October 9, 2008
4/29/2008When I first saw this tape, I was excited due to the inclusion of the pencil sharpener and note pad features. However, I can only give this one a "fair" for a number of reasons. The width of the body is 2 and 3/4 rather than the standard 3 inches, so you have to remember to take that into account when measuring with the tool "in the measurement".Next, the end "play" does not seem to be accurate as my measurements seem to be off by 1/16 when pulling the tapeThe pencil sharpener is too cheap and does not work that well and the spring belt clip must be shorter than normal as it falls off my belt a lot.Finally, I would prefer to be able to read either side with inches rather than millimeters on one side that I rarely use.Still, not bad for the price, but I would pay more for an upgraded version of this multi-function tape.Editor's note: The casing on this tape is only 2 ¾ long as this is only a 16' tape. For a 3" length case one needs to step up to a 25' tape. If the measurement is off and the pencil sharpener doesn't work well, we can get a replacement tape to you. In regards to not using the millimeter measurement, we have the Lefty/Righty tape that is all inches which you may prefer instead. After a follow contact by FastCap the previous reviewer writes:10/09/08I am quite surprised that this type of customer service still exists. Rare indeed! I recently purchased (from a local Rockler dealer) your green tape with inch markings on both sides. I like it much better. My only complaint would be that the belt clip doesn't hold as well as many other tapes I have used. I believe that was one of my complaints in the review. Overall, though, it's still probably the best tape measure I have used.No action is necessary on your part, but again, I appreciate your follow up and kind gesture.

I recently purchased 5 of these to give as gifts to a Japanese friend who is a surfboard shaper. Surfboards are still traditionally referred to in inches so he and his crew use inches as well as metric everyday. Price was right, and for their purposes the tape measure was all they really need - they were STOKED to get the both-in one unit - the pencil sharpener and note pad are just handy extras, but appreciated. One of the sharpeners was missing the blade however. 1 out of 5. Ah well.Editor's note: Our customer serice team at 800-376-7856 will be able to assist with replacement of that missing one Brian.
