This simple accessory prevents your tape measure from slipping off the corner while measuring diagonals. The 90° inside corner securely straddles any outside corner, and rotates 360° to accomodate any rectangular object. It attaches easily to your tape with a single, powerful rare earth magnet. Use it while assembling drawers for a perfectly square batch. Also great for cases, frames and more. Slot for tape hook measures 1-1/8" wide. Made of durable plastic.

After reading some of these reviews I wonder if I got a faulty device. The only good thing I can say about it is that it has a good magnet. This dosen't stay on the corners at all. I even tried it with my Fat Max tape. Not worth the $.

This looks like a good idea on paper, but it is really quite useless. If you are spanning more than a foot or so, the tension required to keep the catenary angle out of the tape pops it off the top. If the angle is much greater than 45º, i.e., if the project is rectangular, the jig slips off to the side, since the center rotates so freely. Just putting the end of the bare tape on the corner is far easier and more secure. And if you are trying to set it down by extending the tape from where you stand, forget it. Even a Fat Max heavy duty rule can't reach more than a foot or two. I would return it, but the shipping would be more than I paid. Save your money.

I found the unit would not work on smaller projects or when using the four clamps and four square blocks used when gluing up cabinet doors. I had the clamps placed on the inside of the blocks, which still made it difficult to use the product. Otherwise it's a great product.

This is by far the easiest way to measure a box for square! If I lose or break mine, I'll definitely be buying another one.

I bought this about 2 years ago and is not worth the money. Everytime I put it on a corner with the tape measure it pops off. For small drawers two hands are needed. For large items it's a waste of time and money to square up a project when the tape will hold much better.
