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
I know this question is antiquated, but I felt a driving urge to respond so people that read this will know. Take it back to Home Depot and get a new one. They have excellent support. Milwaukee doesn't need to be involved. Just tell them the truth - "I am not happy with the durability of this product. It broke far too easily."

Is this lifetime warranty

Asked by: Champ
It has a limited lifetime warranty, not unconditional. Probably covered for defects in material and workmanship, but not for things like stepping on the tape, other abuse. You could call Milwaukee at 1-800-SAWDUST to ask their exact policy.

do Milwaukee tape measures have fractions

do Milwaukee tape measures have fractions
Asked by: Terry
I have more than a few Milwaukee tapes, and none of mine have the actual fractional equivalent of each tick mark printed on the tape.

16 ft. Magnetic Tape Measure is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 188.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I picked this up to replace another tape with a broken blade. I have had this tape for about 6 m... I picked this up to replace another tape with a broken blade. I have had this tape for about 6 months. What I like: Rugged build; locking mechanism; Has measurements on both sides of the blade; magnetic tip (great for attaching to corner drywall edging). What I don't like: Heavy; Belt loop holder is to stiff (takes both hands to attach to pocket). My biggest complaint is that the tip bend inward, throwing off my measurements by 1/16th of an inch, as opposed to outward (as happens when you keep pulling the tap to pop it out of a crack). I was hoping I could get a replacement blade. But no luck. So this one is in the garbage and I'm shopping for its replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tape Measure I’m picky about my tape measures and this one is awesome. Has a large magnetic tape end and nice clear markings. I was surprised how hard it was to find a tape without printed fractions, so this one is a winner!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of garbage $20 dollar tape didn't even last 3 months. Milwaulkee won't replace it without a receipt. Stick to the Stanley or fatmax tapes that actualy last. Never buying milwuakee again...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoughtful features make this a must have If you're like me, you probably think most tape measures are the same. While that's generally true this tape measure, in addition to having the standard features of others, has a few bonus features that I feel set it apart. Worth noting: - Magnetic end means it sticks to wall studs as well as your fridge (if you're trying to measure from one end of the kitchen to another) - The tape itself is semi-textured nylon, almost like a very rigid fabric which means it doesn't seem to have the tendency to fold or buckle like other aluminum tape measures I've had. - Finger stop: You can retract the tape measures with no fear of pinching fingers or slamming the end. Worth spending a little extra to get these thoughtful features.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 25-Foot Milwaukee Magnetic Tape Measure Doesn't Hold Up to the Mark Saw it on sale and thought it would be a nice addition to my tool box, but was wrong. Biggest flaw is that it doesn't stand up when the blade is extended and you lock the blade. So when measuring wood and other non-metallic products (like sheet rock), the body of the ruler rolls over, causing the end of the tape to detach from the edge of the object you are measuring. Guess it would be a much better tool if I was working with metal products. Going back to my old Stanlely 25-footer.
