Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit I always have one of these with me
lilrabbit here, trouble shooting a problem with the Home Depot review system (all my reviews are showing up under the name of "anonymous" instead of under my "lilrabbit" screen name. On to the review!
I bought my first 12 foot Stanley Powerlock tape measure when I was 14, and I have always had one or two handy ever since. I keep several in the shop in purpose made holders next to the chop saw and the table saw, and carry one on my belt as well. I buy one every couple of years, and I am pleased to note that the quality has not declined one bit.
Only complaint is that it no longer has the handy list of information printed on the back side...nail sizes, pilot hole recommendations for various screw sizes, rafter tables etc. Handy to have, but not a deal killer.
Still sold in a tough metal case, and still prone to getting lost or stolen before they break.
Great tape measure...about as good as they get.

I needed to replace my Measure for my tool box and this 12FT Tape fit the bill. The tape is very easy to read, I cannot believe I had been using a tape that was so hard to read for so many years! Oh and it actually retracts compared to my old one and it is super fast so be carful, it bites.

These are the best 12 foot tapes on the market. Easy to read, durable and convenient to carry.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Winstoniboy Perfectly good tape measure
Like most Stanley tapes, it appears to be accurate. I was surprised by how heavy it is. I guess I've gotten used to the lighter plastic bodied tapes. Must have dropped it three times before my brain could signal my fingers to hold on tighter. In brief, there is no reason not to buy this item. Accurate and solid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Walkdog GREAT Value purchase!
Great value buy, especially when you run a fabrication shop where these tapes are probably the most used tool in the shop!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bill Good product for the price
There is not too much to say about a tape measurer. The only issue I found is it bent a tiny bit so measuring items became somewhat annoying

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by David Stanley Brought Back the Metal Body Measure
This is probably the third or fourth of these I've bought in the last couple of years - mostly because my wife loses them. We love this tape measure, it is slim and has a metal body. Stanley switched all of their tape measures to plastic a couple of years ago, but the outcry was so sever that they brought back the metal body measure for only the smaller size. It is a great value and a handy device.
