Does this have a bottle opener on the back clip

Asked by Jorge September 24, 2020

Answers

Yep, Looks like the belt clip has a bottle opener cut into it. Just tried it, even if that wasnt the intent, it works.

Has anyone else noticed the play in the metal end clip? It measures an 1/8 of an inch off if you are not careful.

Asked by ROF August 23, 2020

Answers

Agreed. The play is too much. No way the end clip is that thick. Just account for it.

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 just got this item today. Upon opening it, a lot of the markings are almost completely faded and make it hard to read. The first place this starts is around the 3' mark, which is where a lot of measurements are needed.

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 love this tape. It is so smooth when extending and retracting the tape. The tape itself Is coated and has easy to read measurements. I prefer Auto-Lock tapes and highly recommend this one if you do as well. The ability to add a lanyard is a nice feature as well. Overall, the tape feels solid and I believe it will hold up very well.

The auto stand out feature does take a little getting used to but performs perfectly and is very convenient when needed. The tape itself is a little flimsy for my taste but is coated and works well. I would recommend this to a friend, especially if you do a lot of framing work.
