I echo the sentiments of Blane Becker, 2008. I finally found a short tape measure. I don't think any of us need a 25 foot tape measure unless we are measuring a room for cabinets or doing finish carpentry. This little jewel fits right in my hand, is light, and easy to read. I say the blade is not more than ¾ inch wide. Now lets see if it holds up.

Finally! The ideal tape measure! Why did it take so long for this tool to be manufactured? I no longer have to fumble with awkward or sticky tape measure locks. Just pull the tape out and it stays where you stop until you push the button to retract the tape. It is just the right size to fit in the palm of your hand and in an apron pocket. For outdoor work or construction, I'll reach for a bigger tape, but this will handle most everything in the shop. It is brightly colored to be easy to find when I lay it down. It has comfortable, rubber cushioned, rounded edges. The tape has a great, non-glare finish and a sliding hook. The body is an even 3" long for easy addition when doing inside measurements. I plan to buy several more so I'll have spares for when they get borrowed or lost, and a few more for gifts.

The idea is great and so is the product until- it stops self locking after a period of use. Then it is worse than the kind you have to lock since there is no way to lock the self locking kind when it stops self locking.

This is my third one, but have not found any better. I just keep buying the same tape and hope it last longer than the last one.
