Default New Tape Measure

I have never seen on of these tape measures before, It was waiting for me when I got home, my wife and daughter had gone to one of the big box stores and my daughter decided I needed one cause it was neat .
I haven't used it yet so I can't say if its just gimmicky or its usable, but checking it out quickly it seems quite accurate. It measures to either side of the case, useful for inside measurements and displays the measurement in quite a few different formats, best of all you can choose from inches or mm/cm.





sorry for the crappy cell phone pics

Thanks

My tape loves to find safe-haven under the saw or under the workbench, just about everywhere I decided to drop it. Glad to see it comes with "back-up"

A good old-fashion steel tape.
