Posted Date: 8/27/2013
Milwaukee Tool is expanding its Tape Measure offering over the course of the next few months; the first in their new line of Tape Measures are the 16-foot Magnetic Tape Measure (48-22-5116) and the 25-foot Magnetic Tape Measure (48-22-5125)
. They feature a Dual Magnet design, in which one magnets holds the hook in front of the tape to the edge of the material, and the other magnet secures the tape to the material from below. Also, each of the Tape Measures includes a Finger Stop area to hold the blade in place instead of using the lock. The wire frame protects the user's finger when the hook retracts. The Tape Measures also include a blueprint scale for 1/4-inch and 18-inch drawings, as well as a wire form belt clip. The 25-foot Tape Measure is currently selling for around $22, and the 16-foot Tape Measure for around $18.
