I have lost more tape measures over the years than I care to admit. The belt clips on most tapes tear up my pants, or take too long to reattach after taking a measurement. So I lay the tape down, and before I can reach for it again, the tape gremlins have added another to their collection. This ingenious holder clips to your belt, just like a tape measure - but you only need to do it once a day. An adapter plate you install on your tape measure with just a screwdriver then holds the tape to the belt clip with a powerful magnet. Simply snap the tape on or off the belt clip when you need it. Like magic, no more lost tapes! (The tape gremlins won’t be happy.) Unfortunately, this does not fit the new Starrett Digitape. Tape holder includes adapter plate and belt clip.

Comments about Magneto Tape Holder:
This took me a little while to stop pulling up to remove the tape measure but is not a flaw of the product. Great product that does what it's designed to do very effectively. I bought some for gifts and extra plates to attach different size tapes that I use. I have found no faults with this product, congrats to product design and manufacture for a great job. Highly recommend this product, best I've found and I've tried others.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

superb customer service
Tape measures get bigger and heavier. This magnetic holder works very well, much better than the leather pouch on tool belts. It is strong and stays put.

About Me Professional
I owned a magnetic tape holder I purchased from one of the chain hardware stores. I liked the idea but the magnets were small and I seem to knock the tape off everytime I turned around and bumped something. The Magneto tape holder works ! I like the position the tape is held in and the magnet is strong. I purchased extra plates for my 16 and 25 foot fat max tapes. The plates fit flawlessly and not once have I bumped by tape measure and had it fall. Excellent product.
I would buy again!!!
This holder is perfect for the person who can't seem to keep up with your tape. I bought 1 for everyone on my whole crew.
Magneto pocket saver

Ive seen these used on job sites by my subs and noticed they dont have a torn up pocket from sliding a tape measure on and off the pants all day. Its time to stop wrecking my pants.
