A:  It is not 0.5" as the Web site says. It is 1" wide when flattened out (tape has a natural arc to it).

by|Sep 16, 2021

    A:  No, it is 1" wide and not 1/2". Also, the standout is only about 8.5', not 12'.

      Q:Does the auto lock work flawlessly? I ask b/c I purchased (and returned) two Stanley auto lock tapes b/c the mechanism didn't lock the tape very well (would slowly pull back in and if bumped would go right back in easily). It's a fantastic idea if executed properly, but haven't had a good experience--tho with a different, but well respected, brand.

      A:  I've had mine for about 10 months now and have not have any issues with it, it just took me a few days to get used to the auto lock, old habits are hard to break! But I LOVE the auto lock!

      A:  I haven't had a single issue with the autolock of this Milwawkee tape measure. Once the tape is out, it stays out and doesn't creep back in.

        A:  Yes, on every use. Bumping does not affect it.

          A:  The auto lock does not work flawlessly and actually broke after the second time using it.Milwaukee makes great power tools but it’s absolutely horrible at tape measure. I would advise my daughter or my son or my wife to never buy this brand for tape measure. This is not the first experience I’ve had with a bad tape measure from Milwaukee. Stay far far away from Milwaukee tape measure! You have been warned.

            A:  Yes, I have had no problems with Auto Lock. I know that Milwaukee Tools are well known in several industries. I would definitely take it over any other brand

              Broke the third time using
              Seemed like a nice tape, fairly priced. I was extremely disappointed that the it jammed up and essentially became unusable on the third time using it.

                NOT 12' Reach
                Overall this is a very good tape measure, esp. for the price. However, the web description says 12' Reach. On the package, it specifically says 9' Reach. It does extend 9' without collapsing but there is absolutely no way this can be extended 12'. Despite this, a very nice product.

                  I love this measuring tape! It has a feature that most measuring tapes do not have. When you pull out the tape it stays out. This feature makes it much easier to work with. Then when you push the button it retracts. I also like the fact the tape is sturdy. All around a quality product. If you want a great measuring tape, you should buy this one.

                  I bought this around 2 weeks ago. I use it around the house for my DIY projects, so I have not used it all that much. The tape measure feels nice in my hand and the auto lock is stiff enough, but the numbers and lines that are printed on the top that we use to measure are starting to wear out already. Dont know if its because of the print didn't seal good or what. Have not tried taking it back for exchange, but after 2 weeks or so they probably won't take it back. Still a nice tape measure and probably won't 1st choice but not my last choice.

                  Don't buy!
                  I am a Milwaukee fanboy, but this tape is not up to Milwaukee's quailty! I bought this tape measure to replace my $3 tape measures because I ruin them a lot and I thought that this tape measure would last longer. I was wrong! The day I bought this is started to mess up already. The numbers started wearing off as soon as I opened it.(see picture) I had a 25' tape measure from Milwaukee as well but the auto lock broke on it within 2 days! These tape measures are not up to Milwaukee's standards do not buy!

                    I own about 15 tape measures, all different brands & sizes and this is the first one that has the auto lock & I love it! It's just so intuitive, pull out what you need and it stays, push the button and it retracts. Most times I don't need a 25' or 30' tape, it's bulky and easy to drop & the locking levers don't work that well after awhile. This little guy can do 95% of the measuring I need and is smaller & lighter in weight than the others & has a nice feel in hand The hook at the end is large enough to hold a knife to when cutting drywall & there are 3 rivets to help keep it attached to the tape. I also like the markings at the longer lengths, it actually says 15'4". If you need help with the fractions (or have a helper that does), they are printed out as well 1/8" 1/4" & 1/2", so it actually has 3/8" & 7/8" printed within each inch (see pic). The tape can stand out around 8'6" & is marked in red blocks with yellow numbers for 16 OC, and black blocks with yellow numbers for feet. The only minor learning curve I had was where to press to get the tape to retract, you have to push down toward back of the tapes black locking trigger rather than toward the front edge, but only took a few times to get used to it. This is how all tape measures should be made!
