This tape measure is easy to read, with inches on one edge and centimeters on the other. The inches are subdivided into 32nds and the centimeters into millimeters. Meter markings are also highlighted. This instrument is handy because many items now are measured metrically and I’m often unsure of the size in inches or feet. This helps me visualize.
I bought this because I like using the metric system for some measurements. It’s easier and makes more sense to me. Everything is 10ths instead of fractions. Stanley makes quality products. This tape measure is bright yellow and easy to spot around the shop. I buy lots of stuff at Home Depot.
Had to purchase metric measure online It would have been better if available at the store We needed it immediately. We had to wait over a week for it
Just what I was looking for
Everything you would expect in a measuring tape from Stanley. The 8 meters does come at about THE very end of the tape…maybe another few inches worth of tape woulda been helpful.
Excellent product. Very well-constructed!
The measurement indicators are easy to read. The size fit comfortable in the palm of your hand, suited for both sexes. The lock and release button is easily used. Highly recommend this for DIYers who use metric and sea, it is not readily available in this size.
Really nice tape measure for the money. I have tons of tape measures but they’re mostly the 25′ variety that are big and heavy (especially the Milwaukee 25′ tape). This is a great tape, it’s just the right size, it really holds the tape tight when you push the lever down, and it has metric which I find I need more and more often. Seems like nice plastic, probably ABS, not the kind that makes you think it will crack in a short time. And it’s really inexpensive, to boot! What more do you want?
Your photograph of a British Units/Metric (SI, System International) tape measure shows a tape marked only in British Units, no System International in sight !
