Clever multi-function tool is a tool no household should be without! Puts a 16-feet tape measure, calculator, note pad and super-bright LED light right in the palm of your hand. Ideal for hobbies, home improvements, and routine repairs. Metal and plastic. 3 1/2" x 2" x 2 3/4" high.
This is a great item that combines everything you need when decorating and then shopping. It is larger than it looks and a bit bulky, but in my opinion, the convenience of having all in one outweighs the size. It fits easily in a med to large purse. I purchased one for all my girlfriends and they love it!
Pros: The tape auto locks (which is handier than you might think), has a good spring return, and numbers on the tape are highly visible. The light is really bright, aimed perfectly where you need it, and is the best idea since sliced bread. The attached calculator functions well, has an easy to read display, the buttons don't stick, and it holds itself open with a good spring. The note pad is big enough to write multiple measurements on, and is easily replaceable with double faced tape. The housing is sufficiently sturdy for light duty work, the belt clip has a strong grip, and I'm fond of the colors.
Cons: The switch for the light is somewhat awkward to get used to, and is a little stiff. The belt clip location makes it better suited for Left-Handed users however, it has a right-handed reading tape. Idealy would have a Calculator/Note-pad side choice option. Also, the belt clip could be bigger (though it does hold well as it is), a wider clip is easier to clip onto a pocket without having to look to see exactly where that pesky clip is. Not construction grade.
Overall the Pros far exceed the Cons on this item. Very well suited for lighter duty tasks like estimating projects & in-shop woodworking. Probably wouldn't endure many drops off a roof, but that's what a strong clip is for. I like this product and would recommend it to others.
