Well, the outside of this retractable tape measure are two fitted shell pieces.

This retractible tape measure, as with all retractible tape measures, works with an inner-spring.

Tape-measures for sewing, in my experience, are often without coverings. Lose, they must be folded and refolded, and finally bound with a rubber-band, to prevent tangles. The better ones are made of fiberglass or flexible plastic, (as is this MABIS tape-measure), but many are made just of a thick paper stock -- easily torn and so, quickly useless.

Tape measures for building purposes, however, come in nice, protective housing, (as does this MABIS tape measure), and are SO conveniently retractible -- but they are made of metal, and so do not have the flexibility needed for sewing or health purposes.

This nice little MABUS tape-measure, however, combines the advantages of the flexible, sewing-and-health, superiour fiberglass
tape-measure, with the protective housing, (and full retractibility!), of the building-construction tape-measures, at a very reasonable cost!

True, the tape measure, inside the housing, is only 5/16" wide -- a bit less than is found in many "non-housed" sewing/health tape measures. But it is perfectly adequate for most purpose. Too, this tape-measure is WHITE, with red printing -- a bit different from the usual yellow, with black printing that I have seen on other, flexible sewing/health tape-measures. But the red is a nice dark red, and is easily seen when in use. This tape measure also has metric measuring on the reverse side, something which all tape measures -- whether made of fiberglass for sewing/health purposes, or made of metal, for building should definitely have. This MABIS tape measure is a full 60" in length, but there is also a convenient 12/16" of extra, non-measured tape at the beginning, and slightly more than a full inch of extra, non-measured tape at the end, for even more accurate, and easier measuring.

Not to much to review. I'm satisfied with the measure. It did the job I needed it to do, which is take my measurements. There is a button that locks the tape in place which is a nice feature. I recommend this measure to any one needed one that's cheap and easy to use.

A pretty good product. The tape gives you inches and centimeters, which is always nice, and the tape itself is small enough to fit between any bumps or rolls you might have. The small size is perfect for a travel sewing case (fits right in the palm of your hand).

I highly recommend this product for those who make clothing or for those who just want to keep tabs on their body size.

((Update: Some people think my review is funny, but I was really pissed off at this product. If you want the best, then buy Clover "Shiro" Tape Measure. I knit and I use this. It's 60 inch. long, won't warp, is retractable and sturdy.))

...cause there's nothing holding this together.

Why? Well, the outside of this retractable tape measure are two fitted shell pieces. And by "fitted", I mean it's not even screwed together like the lid of a jar. I mean it's like a hamburger where the top bun cups onto the the bottom bun and there's not even any ketchup to work as a pathetic adhesive.

This is a problem because this thing's selling point is its ability to retract the tape measure. The retraction is enabled by this thin and sharp metal strip coiled up inside, dying to be set free. This product is so small and light that dropping it is like dropping a plastic soda bottle, which shouldn't hurt the product one bit. But the shell is so weak that dropping it will just make it explode open on impact due to the metal coil inside.

Another way is that it'll pop open when you pull the tape out too fast at an angle (which is what happened to me). Oh, and please DO NOT give this to kids because the thin metal strip inside of it can cut them if it escapes. The only bright side I can see if this breaks is that you can easily take out the measuring tape and continue using it as is, because it isn't tied or glued into the container.

But if you wanted something retractable, you're better off looking elsewhere.

It measures, it's comfortable, it's sturdy (my 2 and 4-year olds gladly test it over and over), and it locks when you need it to. The "clicking" noise that some reviewers have mentioned doesn't happen when you hold the button down. It's never been a problem for me and I use it on clients often.

Love this little gadget. Fits great in my purse. I use it mostly to measure plant pots during summer season - I plant a lot of flowers on my balcony and have various planters which I love buying just the right size pots for. Also handy while shopping in supply stores. Clicks when you roll it out, push of a button retracts the line. I love the fact it's flexible, so it can be easily stretched around objects.

I was looking to get in shape and needed something to help measure my body to calculate body mass. Its hard to review a product such as this because it either serves its purpose or it does not. I use this item once a week and it is in the same condition as the day I bought it. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to measure body for health purposes.

Once I started ordering clothes over the Internet, I immediately needed a measuring tape like this one. This is a basic measuring tape for such purposes and auto-closes when the button is pressed.

I recommend this tape for purposes like the one I described.
