Great Small Tape Measure
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This tape measure is the perfect size. Its fits in my pocket without pinching, or getting caught on things. Its great for the smaller measurements where you don't need to go out far, or just need some trim work done. The measurements are easy to read, and are labeled very well. If you need a tape for smaller projects, this is really the one.
by Brad
works Great!!!!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been using this tape measure for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. It's small enough to hold in your pocket. It's easy to ready. The lock switch works great. When I lock it into position, it doesn't move at all, unless you put lot of pressure on it. When I unlock the tape, it rolls back in within a second or so. It has a belt hook that will hook over your belt and it holds it in place. It's another great tape measure that is well built and will last me a long time. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I have no cons to report on this tape measure. Everything works perfectly. It's a great engineer tape measure. I'm not sure if you can see the two scales in my photo.

Extremely handy size.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This tape measure has come in handy. Checking measurements on a use stove, measuring a puzzle to see if the table was big enough. It took time to go with the engineers scale having .02 inch increments ends up being good. Not having the foot markers is unusual for me. The tape is small enough to stay in my pocket so it is always available. The power lock works very well. I am hooked on using it all the time.

Durable Product.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was gifted the Stanley Power Lock Engineer's Scale 12" measuring tape and I am so glad to be a recepiant of this product. This product arrived just in time for the measurements of our kitchen blind's. The metal casting of this made it look very professional and sturdy. The tape was coated very well and ensured accurate measurements. The metal feature keeps the item from tarnishing and protected for years of use. I definitely will recommend this product.

Very handy little tape measure.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Stanley Powerlock 12' tape measure with engineers scale is very useful when I use it in the shop. It has 1/10's on one side and 1/16's on the other side. Also the first 6" has both 1/32's and 1/50th marks that are easy to read, very handy when working with close tolerances. I use it without the belt hook because it's small enough to fit in my pocket.

Great tool
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Got this few months ago and love it for all my small projects

Great Little Tape Measure
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very handy tape measure to keep in the house. As my wife and I have been contemplating several home improvement projects we have frequently grabbed this to check wall lengths and floor dimensions. The 12 foot size fits well in our hands and is lightweight to carry around.
by ToddR
The mighty mouse of tape measurers!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As a guy who is used to the Stanley FatMax Tape Measure, I was excited to get the Powerlock 12' Tape Measure, and compare. As soon as I got it I kept it my pocket throughout the day. As a master plumber, a good measuring tape is important to my everyday work. The fact that this Powerlock was so compact yet, sturdy and with an extremely legible set of numbers, I was very pleased. I used it for quick measures off the cuff. What is really neat about this tape, is that it has an engineer's scale, so I was actually able to use it when reading plans. I think the small tape measures could always improve in rigidity, and that's one thing I hope in the future can be done.

Tried and true
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I work in metal fabrication mostly cutting tubes to long but very accurate lengths. These tape measures are the standard in our shop. They are very accurate and maintain their accuracy over the long term. When properly taken care of they can last years under daily use. They're small and light weight, very easy to keep clipped on your belt.
by Will
Perfect for the pocket
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Had this now for a couple of weeks and it’s already a habit to reach for my pocket for a quick measurement. I don’t know about anyone else but I am constantly measuring things, is there enough space for the thing my wife wants to mount on the wall? Is it tall enough for 3 of these to go in? Is that fish big enough to keep? This little package fits in my front pocket b has a big tape measure feel. With the lack and easy to read numbers it’s a winner !
