Always had good luck with Stanley tapes. I carry this particular one most often because it's lightweight and compact. Durable to normal shop use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have had this measure for almost 20 years and still works like it did when it was new. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I've been using these forever. My 25' has been through lots of trials, I have installed a small metal clip next to the blade because it is worn through. I just got a new 16' for my work apron. It's perfect size to easily take out of an apron pocket or clip on. Numbers are dark and action is traditional instinctive Stanley. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have been using Stanley 16' tapes for over 35 years, luv the tape! I have 4 in use, just because I need them in my shop, in my toolbox and in my garage. Great having more than 1!
I have and have used A lot of tape measures for over 40 years. The Stanley PowerLock 16 ft is my Go To tape measure in my shop for woodworking . Accurate, right length, and right size for my xxl hands but still small enough for my wife's small hands.
