I have used similar products in the past, but they have never worked well for me. I need to use my tape measure hundreds of times a day, so I need to be able to do it quickly without giving it any more attention than absolutely necessary. This device requires too much focus to line it up to make the magnets stick properly. If I don't take the time to line it up every time, the tape falls off and I have to pick it up off the floor. I need an alternative to hooking the tape on my belt because the hook quickly wears out even a sturdy leather belt. I am planning to look for a tape holder with a metal loop.

I bought this product thinking it was a good idea being how frequently I take a tape on and off my belt unfortunately the thing lasted literally not quite ten min the magnets were strong but the belt attachment was weak and broke

This product is very handy. Quality workmanship. I work with steel so I can put it on my work surface. The magnet is very strong.

I love this, mostly because it saves my belts and pocket from being frayed to death. It works well under most conditions. The caviate here is if you step down in a jarring fashion or jump off something, your tape measure take a pretty hard tumble. So that a huge "let down"! (Pun intended)

I can see how this might have been a good idea. Belt clip, rare earth magnets, ferrous metal attachment on tape measure, It makes sense. It just doesn't work. It falls off easily when even lightly bumped. It's really inconvenient when you've got your hands full and you have to stop and pick up your tape. The magnets aren't strong enough and the attachments make your tape stick out so it' easy to bump it into things

I am constantly using a tape measure. clipping and unclipping from my waist took too much time, putting it in my apron was uncomfortable and I don't wear a belt. I want as little bulk as possible. this is very easy to unclip and reattach. if I bump it turning a corner or squeezing in a tight place it will fall off but it doesn't bother me. I have to have my shirt tucked in too. An untucked shirt will make it worse than using nothing.

I am a contractor and use a tape a lot. This is a great idea but needs a better design. If you return your tape to the belt holder without it being precisely positioned,it will fall off with the slightest jar. If you take the time to ensure its proper position,it will take a lot to dis-lodge it and it will be great. It needs to be designed to be easily engaged without having to look at it. If you use a tape and do not do a lot of physical movement in your job this would be a perfect tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Excellent product!
The product performs EXACTLY as advertised, at least on my 25' Stanley Fat Max tape measure. Anything larger might be difficult as your body could push tape measure magnets away from belt clip magnets when you bend over or get out of truck. But with a tape measure the size of the Stanley 25' Fat Max or smaller, it works perfectly. Most dont walk around with 35' measures anyway. A great product at a good price.
