Small and mighty.
[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.

Measured success
[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.
Excellent quality, great features!
[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
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Seems like a really well built tape measure. The magnet is surprisingly powerful and it has a great standout! Lever lock feature is a nice touch!
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.

Everything you need in a tape measure!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great quality tape measure that is affordably priced. Stanley has always been my brand of choice when it comes to tape measures. This tape measure is very easy to read and has a fractional scale for a more accurate reading. I love that it stretches out to almost 7' without support, allowing you to complete jobs without the assistance of another. The magnetic tip has come in handy when working with sheet metal in my garage. Being a long term user of Stanley tapes, it's great to see that they are constantly working to make their products the best!
