About a week after purchase it stopped holding the tape- it retracts on it's own- defeats the whole purpose of a tape measure when you must hold it out. Right in the trash.

This tape measures up a little lacking in the sturdiness area. As an electrician I rely on my tape as well as all of my other tools to not only do the job but to hold up. This tape may be ok for Harry Homeowner who doesn't work out in the elements, but in 19 degree weather it didn't hold up to a drop from my waist level when it came loose from my belt and landed on a slab floor. I wouldn't recommend this tape to anyone who depends on their tools to earn a living.

I really like the Pull and stay put tape feature. I use to use another brand that has a "self lock" tape. But it wasn't really a quality positive locking tape. it had a tendency of retracting.
That 's not the case with this Stanley Lever Lock tape, this thing is great, Pull the tape out and it stay out. Positive LOCKED!
And yes the hook is very decent too.

I've bought at least four of these -- They are my favorite measuring tape. Seems they are a favorite with handymen too, because between my painter, yard guys and handyman, I'm back buying one this season. You can't go wrong with this as a stocking stuffer.
Although substantial (heavy) it is quite easy to use and the tape locks in place with one finger push.
It has the standard metal lip on the end of the tape and I've even taped it in place to faciliate one person measuring of a large mirror, etc. versatile & built to last.
trust me, it will walk off before you'll wear it out.

The "Lever Lock" version of these tape measures is my preferred one. It is just way handier than the ones where you have to manually lock and release the tape by sliding a button. There are two versions of this one. One, this one, has English units tick marks on one side of the tape and labels for the fractional marks on the other side. This is a real eye and brain saver for me, since I was always trying to figure out which mark I am looking at. The other, which I also have, has English units on one side and metric markings on the other. Glad to have both.

Excellent tape measure. Holds itself open at any length, and retracts smoothly when released.
