Customer Questions & Answers

How do you open the battery compartment?

Asked by: Hitop
With your fingernail or something similar moving the cover away from the jaws. Look for the arrow.

how do i switch from in and out on the digital display?

how do i switch from in and out on the digital display?
Asked by: todd
There is nothing to switch. The large jaws measure O.D. while the small jaws measure I.D. at the same time.

6 in. Digital Caliper is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery in calipers not seated well I took these calipers from the package and it had a battery already installed. I don't know if it was supposed to or not but that battery was dead. The dead battery was incorrectly put in and was very hard to get it out. Normally I would have returned them but i needed to use them right away. After putting in the new battery it worked fine. They do feel a little cheap.

The unit itself, I'd probably give 5 stars. However, the original battery that was in the unit, at the time I bought it, was dead. The plastic battery cover is quite thin. Mine came with a scratch. I'd recommend zeroing it every time prior to using it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money. I purchase this caliper for a spare in the shop. When I opened it the battery in the caliper was dead. A spare battery was in the package. I thought this a nice touch but even with a new battery, checked with volt meter and full charge, the unit still would not function.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low grade Caliper I wish I had spent more for a better quality caliper. The first battery was dead but it did come with a backup battery which worked. The caliper doesn't have an auto off like others I've used, which is probably why the first battery was dead. The caliper itself didn't seam as robust as others on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Product but no package recycling info This is an excellent product! Stable, reliable and strong, however the packaging is not eco friendly, there is no recycling markings on the packaging so all of the packaging material ends up in the landfill rather than a local recycling center or nearest 3d printer. As such I have given it an average value because of the environmental cost of purchasing this and having to throw the packaging in the landfill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting the Exact measurement These are really nice for exact measurement. These are not something you get at a discount/warehouse/special deal place. These are steel and very nice. A large digital readout is easy to read and can be adjusted at any time. The off/on switch is a plus, unless you forget to shut it off. It is easy to use and is very free flowing with the thumb wheel movement. You can get a depth or width reading so easy and if it needs to be the same across the project you can lock the moveable gauge so you get the same reading every time. Nice storage case so it doesn't get beat up in the tool box and it stays nicer longer. I like the feel of the gauge, its got a hefty feeling, not like a plastic one or a pot metal one it feels good in your hand. I love mine. Be Safe
