About Stanley LeverLock Tape Systems
Designed for home improvement and everyday use, LeverLock tape systems provide innovative features at an attractive price, all while maintaining Stanley's commitment to quality and performance. Featuring a 20-percent smaller rounded bi-material case to improve functionality, increase comfort and help prevent the tape from slipping out of the user's hand, LeverLock tape rules includes a slip-resistant rubber grip and a rubberized blade-locking lever. A red blade lock override button allows the tape to be used in two modes. When the button is set with the locked padlock icon pushed out, the blade will not retract unless the user depresses the black lever on the bottom of the tape rule case. When the button is set with the unlocked padlock icon pushed out, the blade extends and retracts freely.

From the Manufacturer

The Stanley Works, originally a bolt and door hardware manufacturing company located in New Britain, Connecticut; was founded in 1843 by Frederick T. Stanley. A few years later, in 1857, Frederick’s cousin, Henry Stanley, founded The Stanley Rule and Level Company. In 1920, The Rule and Level Company merged with The Stanley Works and would go on to become it’s famous Hand Tools Division. Over the years, The Stanley Works has produced some of the most innovative and useful tools ever made. Among these tools are the Bailey Plane, the Surform shaper, the PowerLock tape rule and most recently the FatMax line of products. Today, more than ever, Stanley continues to be an industry leader in tool innovation. In 2001, Stanley introduced more than 100 new products, bringing to 400 the number of new products introduced in the past four years. As a direct result of Stanley’s commitment to excellence, Stanley was awarded the Prestigious Golden Hammer Award, presented for New Product Innovation in both 2000 and 2001.

The good: Very lightweight and slim -- perfect for sliding into your purse or the back pocket of your jeans if you're on an excursion to shop for furniture or household items. Plenty long enough for such outings. I haven't found another tape measure that's as easy to carry around.

The bad: I've owned at least four of these. Every single time I've ended up having to throw the thing away. The problem is the little silver hooked tab at the "loose" end of the tape, the thing you hook at the end of whatever you're measuring. The rivet that holds it on isn't secure enough. It fails with no warning, the tab pops off suddenly, the tape retracts completely into its case, and bingo, the tape measure is trash.

Bottom line: this tape measure is useful enough and cheap enough that I'll keep buying more -- but it's not a long-lasting item.

Stanley used to make a little metal-cased 10-foot tape, 1/4" wide like this one, in a little rounded-square-shaped case. I pine for those but this is the next best thing I can find.

This newer model has a case that's a little bulkier, both in its thickness and because it adopts the "Powerlock" design of its big brothers. (Not so useful IMHO with a 1/4"-wide tape, since the tape itself is flat, not cupped -- won't cantilever rigidly like its big brothers -- so you can't really use it one-handed anyway.) But the case is smooth around the corners and edges so it's nice in your pocket.

The new ones do have one slick feature I find handy: the back side is a girth scale calibrated in inches of diameter -- wrap it around a cylinder (up to 3' dia.) and it reads the diameter of the cylinder.

And then, at least in mine, whose cases are plastic, they have one point of vulnerability, which is how two of mine so far have bit the dust (I ended up finding it advisable to buy three at a time because of this). The current listing claims that the casing is now chromed METAL, which might fix this -- but I'd want to see one to be sure, because mine are chromed, all right, but chromed plastic. The weak spot is the post in the middle of the housing, that anchors the rewind spring -- because it's plastic just like the rest of the housing, and isn't strong enough. If yours are like mine, BE CAREFUL not to pull out these little tapes ANY beyond their 10-foot reading max. You'll twist the anchor post off. You can still carry the ten feet of yellow tape around, in big loops like surveyors carry theirs in, and still measure stuff, but you can't put it back in your pocket any more.

The Stanley 33-115 10-Foot-by-1/4-Inch PowerLock Pocket Tape Rule is a great little tool with respect to its portability! There are so many times I've wanted to measure a piece of furniture, a wall decoration, or the length of some hardware item and have had nothing but my handspan by which to gauge the measurement. Frankly, my spouse's tape measures were all to big and bulky - even the shorter length ones - to warrant carrying them. Then I saw the reviews on the Stanley 33-115 10-Foot-by-1/4-Inch PowerLock Pocket Tape Rule when searching on Amazon for a new tape measure for my spouse. I ordered this product and am so glad I did. No more handspan measuring for me.

The Stanley 33-115 10-Foot-by-1/4-Inch PowerLock Pocket Tape Rule is compact, lightweight and easy to use. It locks so that one can measure one length repeatedly. However, because of the width of the tape and its light weight, the tape is not rigid. This makes measuring something without assistance rather challenging. My spouse was less than happy with this item as a tape measure for inside our home; it was not something he would care to use for "real" measuring. I, on the other hand, loved its compact size and the fact I would no longer have to tote a large, heavy tape measure when shopping for something requiring measurement. However, I must honestly admit that it is difficult to measure longer items without assistance. The small hook at the tape's end does not stay placed well; as a result, the tape tends to flex so it is not always straight.

I feel the Stanley 33-115 10-Foot-by-1/4-Inch PowerLock Pocket Tape Rule is a fine product and would recommend it for anyone who needs to carry a tape measure when shopping. However, it is not sufficiently rigid so that measuring items without assistance is easily accomplished. For that reason, I did not feel I could rate it a five star item.

This is a very well made product. Very compact and high quality. It pulls out easily and retracts smoothly with confidence. It has an inches-in-diameter ruler on the other side of the regular inch ruler. You lay the tape over the circumference and the ruler reads out the diameter (instead of the circumference itself) in inches, thus saving you from doing the calculation for the conversion. But frankly, I seldom use this feature and would have preferred an international centimeter ruler (denary basis of course) on the other side. However, I still would give it five star for its own design even though I prefer something different.

This is a small tape measure that is perfect to keep in your purse or car. My wife is always shopping for furniture, etc and this keeps her from buying things that wont fit. It is a very basic simple (and light) 10 ft tape measure. It is metal, but will not support its own weight for more than a foot or two.
