The Best Tape Measure For Your Needs
The Maerble Tape Measure is an attractive looking and easy to use tape measure. The product is very durable with a metal casing surrounded by high quality hard plastic and rubber, and so can easily withstand many drops. The tape measure extends to the most standard used length of 5m, 16 foot, and the tape is 19 mm in width. The nylon cladding blade allows more wear and corrosion resistance, five times life compared with normal nylon. Extension stiffness without bending can be up to 7 feet.
The most important feature is the self lock mechanism which prevents the tape from retracting. Two buttons on the front side and front rear allow easy access to release the tape. The button can be released at any time to maintain the lock.
The body of the tape measure comprises a clip so that it can be stowed on your belt. Alternatively, the strap can be used to clip it on a holder or keep it around your wrist when in use to prevent dropping.

I love the default locking feature of the blade when making a measurement. When pulling the tape out for a measurement, the blade will remain extended automatically. The blade can then be retracted by either pressing the recessed tab underneath or the lever on top. I was able to extend the blade out to 73-inches before it collapsed.

The 3/4- inch wide blade is divided in half for standard and metric measurements. On the top standard side; there are black numerals at every inch, and red progressive numerals every 12-inches and every foot.

The rest of the blade is marked with only 16ths of an inch.
On the bottom, metric side of the blade, there are black numerals for every 1 through 9 centimeters (cm) and a red progressive...
This is a really nice tape measure for the price. The build quality feels really good and it feels comfortably light while maintaining the feel of heft that I associate with a well-made tape measure. It's long enough for my needs (I don't need anything longer than about 10 feet at the moment) and is surprisingly featureful for a $10 (or so) tape measure. The metric and imperial units are a nice touch, but if you can't live with marking lines only on one edge of the tape you might want to look elsewhere. Each edge has measurements: one side is inches and feet, the other side is centimeters and meters.
My favorite feature is the dual lock releases. There is a big release above the tape that features prominently in the design. (It's big and angular and impossible to miss.) What might take a bit longer to find is the release button on the underside of the housing, right next to where your index finger curls under it for stability. A quick press after moving your finger and the...
I build custom doors and love that the tape stays out without having to fiddle with a lock - I wish my big tape did that.
