About This Product

The Stanley 25 ft. LeverLock Tape Measure features a magnetic tip, fractional markings and an automatic bottom lock for steady operation. The blade automatically locks at the length to which it is extended, allowing the user to control retraction and thereby reducing the risk of injury and prolonging blade life. A magnetic end hook makes easy work of measuring metals like pipe, beams and ductwork, while the fractional markings ensure accurate readings every time. The unique Write-On Label allows users to jot notes and numbers on the side of the tool with a carpenter's pencil.

Q:Does this unit have the light grey “Write-On” label or an all black label?

Answer This Question

A:  i think so

by|Nov 22, 2020

    A:  The Stanley LeverLock I have is all black. I would NOT recommend buying the LeverLock tape measure because the mechanism which keeps the tape extended is POORLY constructed and will fail within a year or less!

    A:  Hi Rai, the STHT33281L has a light grey label to write on with a carpenters pencil that can be erased.

      Q:Description says "decimal scale", but "fractional scale" is printed on pictured tape measure. Which is it? I am looking for an inch tape with decimal divisions, not fractions.

      A:  No

      by|Oct 15, 2019

        A:  I bought several of these because they didn't have decimal on them. I think that either it is a typo in the description or the picture is wrong.

        by|Aug 16, 2019

          A:  It’s a fractional scale so it will show the number in inches but won’t say feet and inches. So if you want to measure out 3’ 3” you have to know that it’s 39”. The ruler indicates each foot but like I said if you want 3’ 3” you have to count out 3 more inches after you’ve pulled the tape out to 3 feet, of course unless your brain just tells you automatically that that’s 39”

                A:  if you squeeze the lever, it releases it. when you stop squeezing the lever, it locks.

                  A:  The auto lock function on these seldom work. Brother in law also has one and the autolock on his never worked either. Test in the store before buying as many are defective. Poor quality assurance testing

                    A:  You push down on dispenser to lock it

                    by|Jun 15, 2021

                      A:  Pull out the tape without squeezing the lever on the bottom. Pulling the tape out it automatically is locked. Squeezing the lever on the bottom releases the tape / unlocks the take and it retracts back in

                        A:  You shouldn't have to push anything to lock it. As soon as the tape come out it should automatically lock...I believe if this is not happening it may be defective. The one I have automatically locks.

                            A:  It’s locked when you pull it. It stays there until you squeeze the lever to retract it.

                                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First of all, I love the size. It fits on a belt or nicely in a jacket pocket, or in the cup holder of my SUV. Secondly, the magnet tip is super strong and is a nice addition to a tape measure. Great for doing jobs solo, and/or you don’t have your kid readily available to hold the tip to get the exact right measurement. Also, the fractional read makes it easy to record precise cuts. Great for us who are blessed in mathematical fortitude. Overall, super happy with this tape measure so far, and will likely buy another. Happy measuring!

                                          Great tape measure
                                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm impressed with my Stanley Leverlock Tape Measure. It is incredibly sturdy, I don't feel like it will break easily if it falls during a job. This tape measure feels comfortable in my hand, and has a good strong magnet for when I use it on metal. The tape pulls out easily and quickly retracts with the push of a button. It definitely helps to make my job a little easier.

                                              Great Features - THE Perfect Tape Measure!
                                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had this tape measure for a few weeks now and it is BY FAR the best tape measure I have ever owned. It is a very high quality tool - it's got a good weight to it, easy to hold and use, and overall feels as though it will last. the magnet is strong, and the tape is accurate. The lock holds well and takes a good amount of force to press. The only thing I could complain about is that the tape took a few days of use to retract past 3 feet without assistance. It will easily bring the tape in under 3 feet, but needed a little help with anything over that. It is now bringing it in without issue at all lengths. Overall this is a great tool and is worth every penny! This is the last tape measure I will buy for a while.

                                                Great Tape!
                                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this tape because of the fact that it has the fractions already marked which I believe helps make accuracy as simple as a direct read caliper. It has a good heft to it, and the leverlock works great and seems more secure and easier to use. The magnet at the tip and the blade hook work excellent. One thing about the magnet on the tip however, it will tend to pick up iron particles in dirt, in the shop and just about anywhere that it comes in contact with the ground. That however is more than compensated for by the fractional markings, the usual markings for standard stud placement, and the good anti-glare finish on the blade itself. So the magnet is just a minor annoyance compared to its usefulness. One suggestion I might make is to replace the upper markings with metric ones - that would make this truly an all-in-one tape for practically any use. It's a great tape that I would recommend to anyone, amateur and professional alike.

                                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This 25 foot tape measure is great. The measure has a leverlock on the bottom which makes for easy one hand operation. The lock is on bottom of the tape measure it is the best. The tape has great print easy to read and has a curve to it that adds stiffness to the tape and the magnetic tip can be yse to great effect over the length of the tape, the magnetic strength is fantastic.

                                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The ABS frame feels durable, yet lightweight and it's very easy to grip without accidentally pressing the release to retract the tape. I LOVE the LeverLock tape measure. The lever lock type doesn't require sliding a brake button to keep the tape extended; you simply extend however much tape you need, and it stays out until you press the retract button and the spring pulls it back in. Nice thick steel with a good coating; I can extend the tape 8-10 feet before it folds from it's weight. The fractional scale and markings are exceptionally well printed and easy to read and the yellow paint feels like it won't flake off easily. If you need a tape measure for woodwork, building, crafts and around the house I wouldn't hesitate on buying this tape measure. Absolutely worth the price.

                                                        Solid tape with smart features
                                                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I work mostly with wood, both in the shop and out in the field. Rarely do I need to measure anything beyond 25 ft. So this tape is the perfect size for an all day carry, either in my tool belt or easily on my pants belt. I have never had a problem with figuring out the fractional increments of an inch but I do think it’s nice that Stanley put them on this tape. Also, the magnetic end is handier than I initially thought it would be. If I worked with metal more regularly, I’d probably get more use out of it, but sure does come in handy when I’m on top of a 10-12 foot wall and I drop something metallic on the ground. It’s a pretty strong magnet on the end of the tape. Overall, a great tape. Only one negative is that it doesn’t have as far as a “standout” ad the Stanley 25’ fat max (about 10’) this tape has a standout of about 6.5’. No big deal, sometimes it just nice shoot your tape out 10’ to the end of a board or wall.
