Customer Questions & Answers

do you have a replacement for a tape that has a slight break in it

I have a 25' tape that i recently purchased and just after a short while, less than a month, the tape cracked at the 6" mark. What can i do to repair/replace this item. thanks ken
Asked by: KenA
By the time you purchase a replacement tape, you might as well purchase a new tape measure. Although a bit more expensive, a heavy tape measure will last much longer and pays for itself over the long haul.

The nylon bond does not hold up as well as they claim. I can usually get about 6 months out of a fatmax but I have not even been able to get 3 months out of the milwaukee tape measures. The first one broke at about the 1 inch mark. The nylon bond started peeling apart on the second one and made certain spots basically unreadable. The marketing behind their coating is a complete lie. It does not give you any more longevity on a job site. As far as I can tell, it is much worse than the classic design. Their lifetime warranty is a joke as well. You need to send it in to an authorized service center on your dollar and wait a couple weeks to get a new one. You can't take it back to where you bought it for some reason. Usually Milwaukee tools a pretty good but I really did not have good luck with either of the tapes I tried.

Just as with cameras, the best tape measure is the one you have with you when you need it. My problem with the Milwaukee tape measures is that the opening belt clip is fitted extremely tight to the housing of the tape measure and the metal clip is so strong and stiff that it is totally unusable. Not sure who needs a clip to be so tight-I have to use two hands to open the clip and attach it to my belt. I often want a tape measure clipped to my pocket or belt and this one is impossible to clip. I like the Stanley's for the clip mechanism but I actually prefer to use the Milwaukee if I am wearing a toolbelt or shop apron with tape measure pocket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 25'&30' tape measures I bought both tapes. They both broke with less than 30 day use. I do construction work. They do not hold up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from From an electrician perspective. Pros *Finger stop is very useful. *The regular stop works well. ... From an electrician perspective. Pros *Finger stop is very useful. *The regular stop works well. *The base has enough grip to stay on the ground without a lock when pulling back off an object on the floor *The back is useful measuring heights with "u-bend method". *The casing is very durable. *Magnet is sometimes helpful for measurements but amazing for picking up dropped metal objects from the ladder. The magnet is very strong, it can hold a 3/4" compression coupling. Cons *The end bends very easily, mine eventually bent enough to break off. *The first inch is almost unreadable. *The magnet can sometimes make measurements more difficult by snapping to other other objects. *The belt snap at the back doesn't fit standard clips-ons on tool belts well. Used it for 3 months before it broke on a job site before it the end broke off. I would recommend this tape if the end didn't bend so easy (and eventually break off). A coworker broke the tape itself after about 3 months as well, but I never had issues with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice change from Stanley I have gone through numerous Stanley and DeWalt tape measures, and found that they got the job done, but either broke or lost their legibility as time when on, and were nothing special. After my DeWalt just broke when I tried to pull it out to it's full 25 ft length, I went to HD and decided to be a bit choosier this time. There was not much difference in price between similarly featured tape measures, but I selected the Milwaukee model because it had a mylar finish and a more ergonomic design. What I particularly like is the feel of the retraction. Try that for yourself when you next need a tape measure. I don't know how well it will hold up in the long run, but subjectively it seems better designed than the Stanley or DeWalt tapes, so I am hopeful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for drywall I live this tape measure. I was skeptic at first, given it's awkward size, but it is extremely comfortable to use despite the clumsy look. Also, I absolutely love the hook. Something about the design of it makes scoring drywall so much easier. That being said, I'm talking about the non magnetic one without the finger stop. I'm reading a lot of negative reviews about the magnetic tape measure, and I don't use that one. This non magnetic one, however is excellent for any professional who uses a tape measure daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tape measure that is built to last the tape itself is high quality, easy to use, and I love the numbering system on the tape itself. The magnet on the end of the tape will come in handy at some point I'm sure. This tool seems to be of high quality and I expect it to last a long long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Performance The tape measure fits well in the hand and has all smooth edges. It is strong, stout, sturdy, accurate and repeatable. You can use your other tape measures for sacrificial purposes or loan them out, caring not if they return.
