This little guy is great for wood working or even metal work if your common size materials are max length of 8' . It has a handy and strong little magnet which allows me to place it on a vertical metal structure making it easy to find when misplaced or in my case I forgot where I put it.

Magnetic! But maybe just an “ok” little tape measure.
Tape is high vis but scant of detail and narrow (the Milwaukee mini keychain 6’ tape measure has a thicker width tape). The hook is also a bit small for the nice 9’ tape capacity of the device (the 6’ Milwaukee hook wins here).

The DeWALT 9' measuring tape is awesome for it's compact size. I love the magnetic attachment that is incorporated into the design. I have been recommending this product to all of my friends and loved ones. Definitely worth the investment!

This is a nice, compact tape measure. I use it in my woodworking shop, where I seldom need even a 9’ measure. I bought it because it was small and because it has a built-in magnet, thinking it would be very convenient to have this stuck to a piece of machinery and readily available.
Of course, these features wouldn’t mean anything if the tape measure wasn’t accurate. First, I checked it in the store against a ruler from their display as best I could, and it seemed right on. When I got it home, I checked it very carefully against a steel ruler that I use to check all my measuring instruments. Because of the movable tang (for inside and outside measurements), I’m always leery about tape measures. This one, I’m pleased to report, proved as accurate as anything else in my shop. I’ve only had it a short time, but it is very convenient having it on my drill press. As time goes on, I may get one for each of my other big tools. Highly recommended.

This is a handy tape measure because it has a magnetic back. I stick it to the refrigerator door along with other essentials like a bottle opener and a utility knife. The tape measure measures up to 9 feet which is good. It is also really inexpensive.
The only issue I have with it is that it doesn’t include metric units. I’m originally from Britain and after visiting Europe last time I was determined to convert to metric even if the rest of the US isn’t because it makes more sense to me.
Very Handy and Convenient to keep track of with the magnet.
I tend to have an issue with misplacing my tape measure. I'm excited about this convenient size tape having a magnetic plate that allows me to stick it to my refrigerator or my tool box, wherever i have a metal surface. This is a small unit and it is only 9 ft so if you need a longer tape it may not work for you but for things around the house and most of my smaller projects it is perfect. I have only had this tape for a couple of weeks but I am a big fan of Dewalt products so I'm comfortable that the unit will last for a long time.
I carried a folding carpenter's ruler for a while but didn't like the size and inconvenience using it.
I wanted something that would fit in my pocket for general use.
I like DeWalt and have two of their bigger tape measures so I thought I'd try out the 9' magnetic tape.
NOTE: This is essentially a pocket sized tape measure. If you are hoping for a 9 foot standout with an oversized hook end this isn't it.
FIT & FINISH:
I like the compact size of this tape. Slips in my pocket nicely and doesn't create an uncomfortable bulge. The case seems rugged enough for a small tape. The tape extends and retracts well.
This tape features both a belt clip and a magnet. The belt clip doesn't grab my belt as tightly as I'd prefer, in fact it is rather loose, so I won't normally carry it that way.The magnet is handy when I'm working at a metal table because I can slap it on the side out of the way of the work surface and without the hassle of hooking it on my belt or putting it back in my pocket.
This is working perfectly for my particular needs. Small, sturdy, and easy to use.
If you are looking for a pocket tape measure this may be what you want.
Easy to use
Belt clip is too loose for a standard thickness leather belt.
