Johnson Level 916 16-Foot Big Johnson Power Tape

I concur with what most of the reviews have said which is why I purchased this tape, however; after less than half a years time and use the tape measure itself is bending at the hook. Sure, the hook is strong but if the material used to make the tape itself isn't equally strong, once again you have a poor product. Don't know if there's any warranty on this but it hasn't shown itself to be equal to the reviews and is a disappointment. I only use this in my furniture work so it really isn't a lot of stress on the tape.

This is the only tape measure out there that makes accurate (1/16 inch) inside measurements.
It does this with two unique features:
1. The red pointers on the tape make an accurate reading possible from a wide range of viewing angles.
2. The fold out tab on the opposite side extends the body and gives you a nice square surface. The rounded shape of all other tapes makes adjusting for the size of the body impossible to do accurately.

I have had this tape measure for about 18 months now. I have had other good quality tapes that do a good job of measuring inside and outside measurements, but the belt clip on this one is what makes it unique. Regular belt clips often fall off (usually when I'm at the top of the ladder). The clip on this tape has a piece that securely fits over your belt and the tape is removed by pressing a lever. The tape slides and locks into position when returned to the holder.
Another nice feature is the top locking mechanism. Most tapes have a small lever on the front that is difficult to engage hard enough to hold the tape and then difficult to disengage. This tape is very easy to lock and unlock.

The tape is very easy to read and is very durable. Although after 18 months of use mine has scratches and chunks missing from the protective rubber, it still functions perfectly.

The holster makes this the best tape ever. All other tapes have a litte metal clip you put over your belt, this one has a holster that goes over your belt so when you use it you just pop it back it the holster instead of trying to find your belt and get that little clip over your belt. This is my second one I have already worn out one and searched everwhere for one and finally found one on Amazon. Will probably buy more for Christmas gifts. Greatest ever because of the holster.

I bought this for the holster (which works very well) but the whole tape is a well made and accurate tool. The tool pops out into my hand whenever I want it and I am able to make very accurate measurements (inside and outside) with amazing ease. As an added plus, how could you pass up any tool with this name?

Truly a good tape, durable , nice feel ,lock works everytime. The part that caught my eye was the belt clip,this is the closest thing to the perfect way to clip on a tape that I have seen. Eyes closed I can quick draw and REPLACE the tape. It is so handy,and no fuss to keep on my side.

Keep in mind I bought this on some deal a while back where it was like a couple bucks. But I must say it's a nice tape. I especially like how you can slide the end so that you can take accuracy inner / outer measurements. The yellow color makes it easy to spot too.

I've owned Big Johnson tape measures for about 5 years. I find them to be the most useful and easy to keep track of especially because of the belt clip. They feel very good in the hand and I like the size of the metal tape on the 30 foot model. In the shop or on the jobsite, I do not have to waste time and focus on finding where I last put it. Over the years I got tired of most other tapes that slipped off my belt while getting into the truck or squatting down to do a task. I'm disappointed that the only size now available is the 16 foot model. I bought two more for the future, just in case...
