Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NicoleC Tape broke, Home Depot of Berlin CT wouldn't replace it
Stanley's quality and durability has dropped significantly over the years. Twenty years ago I bought a Stanley that lasted me 15 years. Over the past five years I've purchased many replacements. The tape cracks, rusts, splits. I've never had a problem having it replaced because they technically have a "Limited lifetime warranty." Today I brought this 35' tape to Home Depot in Berlin CT around 2 o'clock and presented it to the returns desk. The tape had broken at the 5" mark. At first there were no problems, the guy behind the desk told me to get a new one. When I came back with the new one he made a phone call and stated to me that Home Depot would not allow the replacement. He asked me for my receipt. I advised I didn't have it.. because likely this was the same tape that was replaced many other times after it broke. I didn't think to give him my email address or my CC number to look up the past purchase. I was disappointed and left the tape with them. It's garbage if Home Depot won't replace it. So... am I disappointed? Yes. in Stanley for making a non durable product and Home Depot Berlin CT for not replacing it. The competition isn't too far away, looks like they have a new customer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BGibson Works great
A little expensive, but for measuring longer distances without a helper, works great. Does exactly what I bought it for.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mastrkee Better get two
I use a tape 5 days a week and this one is good for about two months before the end will break. I love how you can reach out to 11+ feet before the blade breaks down and you have to try again. If it cost $20 bucks it would be an excellent value but for the $30 you have to pay for it I believe it should last a lot longer. That's why it's only an average rating from me.

Well first off I'm just your average home DIY-er. I bought this in replace my old Stanley tape. The feel of it is good because the grippy texture. The tape is a lil wider then most therefore when you extend it out it doesn't fold over collapse as easy as thinner ones do. Also it not small buy any means so therefore guys who wear an XL, XXL glove will like how it fits in your hand verses smaller tapes. And it has bend drop tested (not on purpose). It off the top of my 10' ladder twice while working with no issue.
