      Sturdy measuring tool

      I prefer these sort of DIY measuring tapes compared to the soft rolled up ones as they usually have a lip which you can hook onto whatever you are measuring which is particularly useful if the item is large or if there is no one else around to hold the end of the tape measure. This tape cost £5.95 from B&Q and they also do it in 3 and 5 metres sizes.

      It is quite chunky and is black and yellow with the Stanley logo at the top. It has a metal tape inside and the measurements are marked clearly on the tape in centimetres, metres, inches and feet which is useful as I do sometimes switch from imperial to metric or the other way round according to what I am measuring. The tape is a bright yellow colour and the numbers and markings are clearly marked and are large enough to see at a glance even if you are short sighted.

      It is rigid enough not to bend when it is stretched out but it also winds back into the casing easily enough. It has a lever which you push down to lock the tape in place which is particularly useful when I need to make a note of a particular measurement as I can leave the tape in place and write down the measurements without having to try and write one handed whilst holding the tape. The metal lip is quite deep which allows you to hook it over the end of whatever you are measuring.

      When you slide the lever back the tape does start to rewind back into the casing which it does quite quickly so you need to make sure that your fingers aren't in the way. As well as using this tape for measuring my things to sell on Ebay I also use it for measuring in the garden if I am planting rows of vegetables or seeds.

      This measuring tape really does have a wide range of uses, for both domestic and professional use. It is strong and well made and also easy to use, with clear well marked measurements. You can probably get cheaper measuring tapes but I think that this one will last for ages if not for ever so I think it is good value and would recommend it to others
