Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stan Self Retracting Tape
Eliminates hand winding tape back into the case. Hefty, nearly 2 lbs. short cylinder shape (1-5/8" x 4-1/4"). Made to be used hooked on your tool belt with a spring loaded split ring clasp. Fat disc shape makes holding it in hand while spooling out tape a bit cumbersome. Spring loaded tape reel retracts nice & easy. Faster than hand winding.
A couple of work associates asked where I got it. Home Depot, of course! Took off 1 star for no provision of a hand grip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CK This thing really measures up.
I have an old style manual wind up 100' tape measure. This one is the difference between night and day. The new one makes every long measurement quick and easy.

The 100' tape with the auto rewind works perfectly. It replaced the shorter Stanley product that I had and works far better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1Joe1 Ok compromise
I appraise houses and routinely carry a 35' for most walls and a compact 100' manual rewind in my back pocket for longer stretches or barns. I was excited about the idea of a 100' auto rewind and only carrying one tape. The tape is rather heavy but feels durable. The swivel hook is useless for me, due to the weight and small size of the hook it takes two hands to attach it to your belt loop, and I get the feeling it might break a belt loop. I wish it had a belt clip like retractable tapes. Overall its a good tape, just cumbersome if you are holding anything else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey95 Auto-Rewind died within 3 months
The auto rewind feature on my unit stopped working after 3 months -- it never was that strong/effective -- so I exercised the DeWalt lifetime hand tool warranty and traded to a fiberglass manual wind tape. The auto-rewind tape is nice in concept, but failed in execution; in addition to having a weak retraction, it was heavy. This tape was compact; I have a big hand and it fit nicely in my hand.

This is a Heavy Duty Tape measure all metal construction, easy to clip on your belt and measure without holding the tape in your hand, after your measurement just let go of the tape and it will rewind on its own.

Heavy duty & heavy weight. It is a bit too heavy to wear on waist/belt for me. Item performs well.
