The only down side to this tape measure is it's packaging. The price at Walmart was $4.77 which is very reasonable. The quality seems quite high. I really like the stay put feature and it retracts smoothly. However the packaging is daunting. It shows a schematic on how to cut it to get the tape out. The plastic is so tough I broke a razor blade trying to cut it. It took a serious pruning tool to get it open cutting where they suggested and I still had issues getting the darn plastic off. A good product and lousy packaging.
From the vendor: The Komelon 16' x 3/4" Self Lock Tape Measure features a revolutionary design and makes a welcome addition to any toolbox. The nylon-coated blade automatically stops itself when it's pulled out. The Komelon tape measure retracts with the push of a button. Use it for several applications such as carpentry, construction, home projects, hobbies and much more.
