Exactly what I needed.
I was very impressed, but what I thought was just going to be a simple tape measure. I don’t think I would buy any other cheap measuring tape once I have played with this one. I love the finger hold to keep the tape from running around. I also love the Magnetic tip which will hold itself for a decent distance. It also fits quite well in my hand. On top of this there is a notch for a wrist strap. I felt the construction was high quality and also provided for good grip.
This is the best tape measure that we own. I like to keep one in the house for different projects but my husband loves this one. The magnetic tip comes in handy for a lot of different measurements when doing things alone. It has a handy thumb lock, a belt clip and something I haven’t seen on other tape measures, a place underneath to place your finger to control the speed of retraction. It has measurements on both sides as well which is something that you don’t see often on tape measures. There is a coating on the bottom side of the first 6 inches that will protect it from a lot of the normal wear and tear that we see on tape measures.The description states that it will maintain a 15 foot reach and I can vouch for that. We tried it out under different circumstances and it exceeded all claims. Often I will be on a ladder trying to measure the distance to a wall or other surface and the measure bends on me which is very aggravating. The soft rubber grip and casing will protect it during drops also. This is a nice tape measure that I think anyone would be happy with.
I have owned many tape measure over the years but none of these had all of the features that this Milwaukee Tape Measure offers. First off, this thing is built like a tank. You definitely know that you are holding something that is built with premium materials. With the impact resistant frame, anti-tear coating and beefy belt clip I am sure this will be the last tape measure that I will need to buy.
This tape measure is a major upgrade from my old one as it has plenty of enhanced features. First it is compact and I like the rubber moulding as it make it easy to hold. I dropped it from a ladder a few times on accident and it did not get damaged. Second it has a magnetic tip which is a nice feature id you are working with a metal part. Lastly what i like most is that it has the measurements on both sides of the tape. This is really handy if you need to make overhead horizontal measurements. I was installing some bolts in the ceiling of my garage and this feature came in very handy. Plus it has this finger stop feature to hold the tape in place.
One annoying feature about this tape measure is that the hook and blade have some wobble room in its default state. That is, when you haven’t extended your tape, the hook will shift up and down easily if touched/pushed by anything. That being the case, the hook does not hang below the tape’s frame – or even when it does, if you try to hook your finger into it to extend the tape, you’ll often accidentally push the hook up, then your finger won’t grab anything. In other words, you have to be slightly careful to actually be able to grab the hook and use this tape measure, or you could use the exposed part on the underside to get it started (but that’s hardly efficient when you’re rapidly measuring things). My coworker has an older model of this tape measure, the blade on his appears to be a sturdier material. On the occasion I pass him my tape measure because he doesn’t have his own with him, he comments that this one is crap. I think it’s not bad overall, but his is definitely better. His also has a larger hook on the end.
The measuring tape is sturdy against falls and seems well built. It feels heavy in hand, but not too heavy. You can stop the tape with your index finger on the groove, or use the lock mechanism. The tip of the tape is magnetic so you can stick to metal surfaces. It has a belt clip that also feels well built, doesn’t look like it would break. The sliding and rolling back mechanisms both feel well designed. The tape itself is resistant to breaking and has a lifetime warranty. You will enjoy this tape many years to come and keep it handy on your workbench.
I got the Milwaukee 16 FT magnetic tipped compact tape measure it has up to 12 FT standout I could get it to 10 FT with no problem at all. It also has inch and metric reading on top and bottom of the tape. I like the wire belt pocket clip easy to clip and easy to remove. I have the wire clip another milwaukee tape I have had for probably two years and its holding up better than the sheet medal clips on other tape measures I have owned. My favorite feature is the finger stop on the bottom front I can let it in slow or stop it any place I want with out having to use the lock.
I have a new favorite tape measure. Its a little thick but that is due to the 1 inch wide blade. but it is very compact otherwise. At top of list is the ability to extend out easily 112 inches and the 12 ft as advertised if holding blade with one hand about 2 ft out. This is Great. Has a very strong magnet on end and if you are measuring pipes or metal studs, its like having extra person. It has really neat finger stop on bottom, so that you can control rate of return very easy, no flying back,Also has first 6 inches with protective clear plastic cover. It has a heavy duty case. With the 16 ft length and other features I think this is going to be my go to tape measure.
