Product Description

Size: 25-Foot

Amazon.com

The Stanley Powerlock 25-Foot by 1-Inch Measuring Tape is a classic, and for good reason. Designed for professionals and weekend warriors alike, this top-notch product offers maximum usability in all types of measuring situations. Equipped with a range of useful goodies, the highly-portable tape will meet just about anyone’s needs. Standard features include a lockable blade for precise measurements and minimal slippage, a belt hook for easy access, a 1-inch wide blade for easy reading, and 16-inch and 19.2-inch stud center markings. Plus, Stanley has added a heat-treated spring to increase the tape’s lifespan.

Two unique features make this tape a standout. First, the blade is coated with mylar to help it stand up to abrasion associated with repeated use. Second, the patented Tru-Zero hook doubles as a pivot for drawing circles and arcs, and it automatically adjusts to handle inside or outside measurements. What this means is that the hook on the end has a small amount of play that is equivalent to the thickness of the hook blade. This is so that when you measure with the hook inside a stop (like a window jam), the front end of the hook is the zero point. When you hook it over the edge of a board, the zero point becomes the back of the hook.

Stanley does make a host of other measuring tools that may be worth checking out. At such a great price, most users can’t go wrong with this one.

The Stanley Story
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 most important part of any project is getting the measurements right. This is the most accurate tape rule I have ever found. Both inside and outside measurements. After almost 20 years of continual use I have to buy another due to a small tear at 5". This is simply the best tape rule you can buy.

You have to have a tape measure for do-it-yourself projects. I have three tape measures myself, including a Stanley. The belt clip is very handy, particularly when you are carrying lumber or are going up or down a ladder. The mylar coated blade helps keep the tape from rusting. A heat treated spring is a must for long life of any tape measure. I like the tape lock on this tape measure too. A tape measure I have from another company tends to allow the tape to move.

Stanley has become a well-known brand with quality products. I own several Stanley tools, including this tape measure. I recommend this one highly.

Stanley 33-430 Powerlock 30-Foot by 1-Inch Measuring Tape

Pros:

- Based on the several of these I've used frequently for over 25 years, these high quality tapes have a long life.

- Locking lever works well with little effort, and the tape doesn't slip once locked.

- Spring assisted tape return is just right - neither too fast or too slow.

- Easy to read numbers and lines (to 1/16"), with stud markers every 16". There are no metric markings.

- Belt hook slips onto my belt reliably.

- Accuracy between tapes is perfect. There are no problems in measuring something with one Stanley tape and marking the cut with a different Stanley tape.

- Most tape holsters I've seen appear to be designed to hold the 25' or 30' Stanley measure.

- One inch wide tapes such as this Stanley are a good compromise between unsupported tape standout and tape curvature affecting an accurate reading. E.g., wider tapes like the Fat Max have longer standout, but you really need to push that tape edge down to make a reading.

- Even though a section of one of my Stanley tapes gets wet occasionally, I've never had one rust.

- At this price, it's a bargain.

Cons:

- Two improvements could be made: modify the end-of-tape hook to include a top hook, and the belt hook should "lock" onto your belt so it won't slip off so easily.

Summary:

If you need a 30' tape measure, and DON'T require the longest possible tape standout (as featured with the Fat Max style), this Stanley is a good choice.

I keep one in my truck and one in my shop. I use my tapes dozens, sometimes hundreds of times a day. My current ones are over 10 years old. I have tried other brands and configurations and find them to be poorly designed. This is the best.

Size Name: 25-Foot
I had used one of these tapes for quite a few years, and was very satisfied. But recently, when I was extending it fully to measure a deck, "sproing!" the tape fell off, and when I took it apart, it seemed the spring had failed as well.

So I went out and bought another one, thinking the first had just exceeded its lifetime. The second time I used the new one, fully extending it, the tape fell off. Taking this one apart, it looks as though the metal piece that is supposed to lock with the tape end had broken off, although the spring still appears to be functional. Other reviewers report similar problems. So now I don't know whether to try again with this tape or try another brand.

My father was a carpenter for years and he recommended this particular tape measure, and I would have to agree that it's one of the best out there. I got mine for 9.50 at a local hardware shop, so for the price it can't be beat. One thing he mentioned to me that really sold me on this was that it was "metal" (or rather used to be). I was a little disappointed to see that it was some sort of "ABS plastic" with a chrome coating. But I suppose in the end it really doesn't matter much as it has a good weight and the holding mechanism for the blade is excellent (I examined probably 10 or so different measures before deciding on this one). Something I noted on the back was it said "Made in the U.S.A." Which if it's true is one more reason for everyone to get one, keeping jobs in the U.S. has become a priority for me when buying tools these days. The distance the tape adds when doing inside measurements is 3" and NOT 3 1/4" which I'm not fond of, having a nice round number seems much better and simpler in my mind. Also unlike many new rounded measures it has a flat back so you can stand it vertically which is nice. Simply put this is a classic tool apparently still made in America, what's not to love?

Nice tape measure, but buyer beware: the case is now made of chromed plastic, not metal. Still a great tape, but lacks the solid feel the Stanley tapes used to have.

I really don't consider myself an old time construction man yet... But I have been using Stanley 30' Tapes for 26 years now. Nothin else feels right. Even when Stanley came up with bigger and better, the Powerlock 30' is what I buy and will continue to buy, for a good piece of time to come. The only reason I gave this tool just 4 Stars is that I can beat tools up pretty bad and they just CAN'T last forever. Stanley will give ya a good run for your money though.
