Have you ever tried to measure something and can't figure out the little ticks between the bigger numbers? Now I am not trying to sound dumb-but to the person that doesn't exactly understand measurements, this is the measuring tape for you. This Olympia 25' measuring tape is the easiest tape measure to use. It goes all the way down to 1/8 measurements and lists them on the tape. It is a bright orange "dispenser" making it easy to locate on your shelf or tool box. I use it alot to measure my boxes for UPS-and wouldn't use anyother kind. The tape doesn't get stuck inside and it easily clips onto your belt or waistband if you need to keep it close by. It also has a safety feature so the tape doesn't recoil back in fast and cut you. Alhtough inexpensive this tool is a must have.
