Often in life it seems that when two items are paired together it just doesn’t seem quite right; like the spork, peanut butter and jelly in the same jar, rabbits and eggs, LiLo and reality, and a measuring tape glued to a small square. Happily I can report that at least the latter works very well! I got the square ‘n’ tape in the mail and my initial thought was wow this thing is really pretty bulky. I was pleasantly surprised to find it actually fit in my tool belt. The next pleasant surprise involved the tape measure itself. The tape has a nice smooth return, clear numbering, and a double locking mechanism which allows you to lock the tape from top or bottom.
