I would suggest calling customer service desk at Home Depot. They will look it up on their computers and try to help figure out why there is a price change when checking out. Did you double check to see if this may be shipping costs?

I had same issue so I ordered 17’ reach online but when it arrived package said 14’ standout, same as in store. If you look under “Details” on this site it does list 14’ standout, so my best guess is “reach” and “standout” must be 2 different things, meaning the tape I have with 14’ standout also has 17’ reach. Hey Home Depot/Milwaukee, is this correct?

Greatest invention as far as a tape measure since man invented the wheel. Love the locking 16’ Milwaukee Tape measure and the finger control lock. Love the longer stand out also. At one time I bought Stanley tape measures but not no more. Now I can measure the full length of my dog.

Marketing on this one is a little sketchy.
Typically respecting the Milwaukee brand, I purchased 2 of these as gifts from HD dot com for gifts. Waited till the eve of the 23rd to open the box so I could wrap them. That is when I saw the 14’ standout on the packaging and remembered seeing 17’ in the on-line description. I thought I must have received old stock so I went to 3 different stores and they all had the same packaging. Went back to the .com and looked up the item. 17’ reach and Milwaukee’s site stated the same. So I called Milwaukee and found out something interesting. I did receive the most current packaging but here lies the devil in the detail. 14’ standout is how far you can extend the tape from the dispenser before it “snaps” and drops to the ground. 17’ reach is that 14’ standout when holding the tape measure with your arm extended. Apparently Milwaukee chose this 17’ reach in their description to align themselves with how the competition is selling their tape measures. Pfft... BTW, I extended both measures out and they snapped at a little over 12’. The next thing marketing will tell me is that standout is extending the measure out at a 70deg angle upwards... If this sort of thing is important to you make your purchases accordingly.

Came apart internally the third time I used it.
I. was initially very impressed with this tape. From the heavy duty tape to the large numbers and easy to use clip, I thought that this tape was great. That is until the third time I used it and something came loose internally allowing the tape to fall out while the spring flung around inside the case unwinding itself. I tried taking it back to Home Depot for a replacement to be told that I would have to contact Milwaukee directly. So, I did just that. I sent an email over two months ago and am still waiting on a response. I love my Milwaukee tools and have spent thousands of dollars on them. I still believe Milwaukee has the best battery powered tools on the market. However I would not recommend this tape measure and I am very disappointed in their customer service.

Excellent Quality
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Milwaukee 25’ Wide Blade Measuring Tape is becoming the best measuring tape I’ve owned. From the time I removed it from its package, it felt tough and had a good weight (handy for staying put when left alone on a surface to measure elsewhere). The brake on the tape spool works quickly and smoothly. One of my favorite features is the finger stop so you can quickly manipulate the tape without using the mechanical brake (see photo). The tape itself is seriously impressive. It stretched over 10 feet through the air before collapsing. The metal is rigid and the numbers printed on it are easy to read at a distance. The claw at the end has teeth on both sides making it easy grab and easy to lock in place on what you are measuring. I’m looking forward to many years of dependable service. You can’t beat Milwaukee quality.

Great Quality!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] There are many things I really like about the Milwaukee 25ft Wide Blade Tape Measure. The numbers are very large and easy to see at a distance. The tape is wide and when you stretch it out, it doesn't flip and flop down, it actually stays standing straight out. That helps when it is one person using it. Great for contractors. It also has a clip so you can hang it on a tool belt, a belt, or hang if from your pocket. Very pleased with this.

Milwaukee Just Made a “Better Mouse Trap”
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Milwaukee just built the best tape measure in the world. Now that I have one, I can’t believe no one thought of this before. The wide blade adds so many advantages its incredible. The first is that the numbers and hash marks are HUGE, no more squinting. The comparison is startling. Second the ability to measure long distances with precision is nice. With the tape being so wide it does not move side to side and lays extremely flat. It is also allows you to free float the tape with out it bending. I had the tape stretched off the side of my deck 10ft before it actually bent. And last, the case, actual tape and coating is superior to many of the other tape I have owned over the years. It looks and feels like a precision measuring instrument. Once you get one of these wide blade tapes, you will never get another narrow tape again!!

I have about five different Milwaukee tape measures... they're all excellent! Sturdy, well made and operates smoothly. I keep this shorter tape measure in our tool box, as it's more compact than the 25 footers we have. The best features are the large, easy to read numerals on not one, but BOTH SIDES OF THE TAPE MEASURE. This is extremely helpful for those of us with "bad eyes" and measuring at angles where being able to read the length on either side is crucial. The very wide blade on this bad boy is also a plus. I highly recommend this.

Great tape. Accurate, good stand out, and easy to read. Im a do it yourselfer and carpenter the 14ft stand out comes in handy. This is the only tape measure I'll use now. Simple features, like being able to hold the tape with your finger from below, and how well the belt clip slides on and off but it will rust so wipe it off if it gets wet. If you want the best then this is the one to get. Well done, Milwaukee.

This is one beast of a tape measure! Weighs in at 1 lb 11 oz on my kitchen scale. Pro: Numbers printed on the both sides of the tape are huge, easily visible. I couldn’t quite get a 14 foot “standout,” more like 13 ½ feet. Still very impressive. Strongly built of high impact plastic, slightly surfaced to give a good grip without slipping. Favorite feature: “Finger stop” – on the underside of the unit, the tape is exposed and can be stopped/released with just a little finger pressure with no risk of slicing your finger on the edge of the tape. See picture. Con: None, just be aware that if you hook it on your pants, it will probably pull them down.

I have been a builder remodeler for 50 years, and as such I daily have many opportunities to use a tape like this MILWAUKEE 25 FT. X 1.3 IN. WIDE BLADE TAPE MEASURE WITH 17 FT. REACH. Almost anyone in the trades uses a tape, and these tapes are just another step forward, especially for bigger work where the smaller tapes are more difficult to reach. These Milwaukee tapes are of very high quality, and fit the need for bigger work.
