Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jaygeo914 OUCH!
This tape measure is built well and looks great. However the hook end of it is very thick and beefy. If your thumb is in the way of the hook end when the tape is retracting it will tear skin off, draw blood and leave a blood blister. This happened to me several times within the first week of use. I recommend a different tape measure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Johnny1234 Good quality
The tape measure is good. However, it does not stand up to the 13' stand out that it says it can do. I got it to 11'6" almost everytime before it bent. The operation is smooth. I would buy another one. It also has a limited lifetime warranty which is nice because I work in heavy construction

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tomr It's a Dewalt
Dewalt quality tape measure does what it says. Probably won't stand up to being run over by my truck which is why I needed to buy a new one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Projectpro Disappointing...
Disappointing from DeWalt. I've bought 3 of these and all with the same outcome. They break or stop functioning very easily (ie. within few months). Typically it stops retracting all the way back. Maybe it's because of the plastic case. They market this as a tougher tape with the ability to better handle drops. Not so! First drop it broke on 2 of the 3. The other just stopped working. Love DeWalt but save your money on this one and buy a Stanley for half the price. No issues since and they're made in the USA.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by breynold2 Holy FAT and quality tape measures, Batman!
This tape is tough! It's the quality you'd expect from Dewalt.... which is why you'll pay more for it. Oversized clip is convenient and the tape is easy to read. I like that it is durable and can withstand hitting the ground. I tend to drop things regularly so durability is important (I should wear a helmut and steel toe boots 24-7). This thing is fat though (~1 3/4" without the belt clip) versus my old Stanley 25 footer (1 7/16" without the belt clip). It's also heavier which I'm sure lends to the durability.
I tried extending the tape to 13' based on the claim that it wouldn't fall, but it bent just over 12'. That's good enough for me. It has lanyard holes, but no lanyard... they could have included a lanyard, but most of us use a tool belt anyway. No biggie.
Great addition to my primary tool box!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rey Every big contractor needs a trusted brand.
When i show up at a customers home and i land the job, they love to see the employees and the fencing contractor using the best. When they see you with a low budget device well they stay away from you thinking your cheap. Thats why i buy the best, and use the top rated tools out there because my customers deserve the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ed Dealt 25' extra strong 13' extendable tape
Supper deal for the price point! Great product, tough, smooth and it does what it claims. Plus I really like the large numbers and detailed scale especially on the first 3" of the tape.
