Sometimes it’s convenient to measure right to left, sometimes left to right. This new tape measure lets you do it without standing on your head! Its heavy duty 1” wide tape is 33% heavier than other tapes on the market and it reads from either the left or the right. Add an erasable note pad on one side (pencils only!), a built-in pencil sharpener, a separate temporary blade lock on the bottom, AND a nifty thumb tab to easily spread the belt clip and a rugged, rubberized case and you have one very user-friendly tape measure! 16ft. Made in China.

16ft FastCap Reverse Read Tape Measure
By Dr. Bob
from Los Alamos, New Mexico
I am a right handed person. That means that I hold the tape in my left hand and mark with my right. With this product I can measure directly, not having to read the tape upside down. The major problem is that, over time, the cover on the spring clip peels away and it does not clip tightly to my pocket. When the tape drops to the concrete floor - especially from 20 feet - bad things happen to the tape. That is why I buy three at a time. I have been using this product daily for about 10 years.

The reversibility of the measurement limits your need to do mental gymnastics, the pencil sharpener saves dull pencil inaccuracy, and the built in note pad on the side is always there for us who do hundreds of cuts a day!!
