Ideal Industries 25-ft Auto-Lock two-sided measuring tape

January 23, 2010 | By Anthony Capkun

Ideal’s 25-ft Auto-Lock tape measure boasts 1-in. blade with bold, black numbers on both sides, meaning you don’t have to twist the tape to read a measurement. This simple enhancement can take several minutes off a multi-bend conduit job, says Ideal, facilitating more precise fits. The Auto-Lock system automatically locks the blade into place when it’s pulled out, eliminating snap-backs or the need to manually lock the blade with a push-button mechanism. Once finished, you simply push the retrieval button to safely unlock and return the blade. (Appears EBMag April 2010, Products)
