Komelon Tape Measure
Komelon Professional High Viz Tape Measure
As a remodeling carpenter the tape measure is probably one of my most used tools. In fact, every trade I know of uses a tape measure! It is also probably my most replaced tools as well – they take a beating on the job site. For that reason it’s important to find and use a durable, high quality tape measure.
A fellow named Alvin J. Fellows in 1868 was the first to patent the spring loaded tape measure. Back then carpenters and contractors used fold-able wooden rulers. I still use one today but only when making cabinets and mantles. They’re still great for super accurate inside measurements.
We’ve come a long way since wooden rulers were the norm. The Komelon Tape Measure takes the spring loaded tape measure to a new and improved level. It has a high-visibility coating on the blade which really makes this tape easy to read in all light conditions. Designed for professional use and is durable enough for daily use.
Komelon Tape Measure has a nylon coated blade and when I tested it I was able to get almost 9′ of stand out before the blade bent. The blade tip is duarble and the blade itself opens and retracts smoothly.
The Komelon Tape Measure will be available in lengths from 10-12-16-25-30 and 33 foot tapes.
