Tape measures work absolutely perfectly as expected/described.
Hearts (Hybsk Gold Love Heart Stickers 1.5 Inch Adhesive Label 500 Per Roll(Gold)) fit nicely to personalize the tape measures.

Das gelbe Gehäuse wirkt leider sehr billig. Handschlaufe ist mehr Plastik als Gummi. Schade, hatte mehr erwartet. Geht zurück.
The tapes come in a sturdy cardboard box, which has a foam insert with a place for each tape. I am keeping the tapes in this box, in the vain hope that whenever I need a tape measure I will actually find them here, rather than having to turn the house upside down looking for one.
For most measuring I will be using the smallest tape measure (5M) the numbers on the tape are large and easy to read, and it has scales for both inches and centimetres. You can measure something and the tape will hold in place and then you can retract it using either the button underneath the tape measure or the larger button on the front of the tape measure. It doesn't retract as quickly as some tape measures I've used but you need to make sure you keep your fingers clear of the metal edges when it's retracting otherwise you could get a nasty cut.
The current price for the set is 18.60 which feels reasonable. These are well made, robust pieces of kit which should last for years if looked after.
Overall - Impressed and should come in handy when doing DIY or just general measuring around the house.
Amazon Basics is actually a first class brand and I’ve had several of their products in the past, all good quality. However, on the Amazon page it says that the tape has MID accuracy. As I understand it the tape should therefore have a CE mark on it. The CE mark indicates that the tape measure conforms to all European Union regulations that apply to it. In the case of tape measures that means the European Measuring Instruments Directive (MID). This doesn’t mean that it was manufactured in the EU but is, to a certain extent, an indicator of quality. There is no CE mark on these tapes. However, the lack of a CE mark in no way indicates a tape measure of poor quality but begs the question: Why is there no mark?
Overall a nice pair of sturdy tapes, well made and clearly marked.
- Super durable and bulky. You're certainly not going to break this in a hurry!
- Handy little hand strap for easy carrying (and it's actually comfortable, it's not a scratchy fabric loop like some have)
- Has an 8 metre length which is more than our standard tape measures
- Convenient button on the top and bottom (the top is a bit stiffer) to retract tape back in
- Really wide tape, and fairly stiff too, which means when you retract the tape it doesn't just fly back dangerously like most tape measures do - it's nice and slow and controlled!
- The stiff tape also means it's quite easy to measure floor to ceiling as you can just push it upwards and bend it
- Locks securely and doesn't bend too soon over long distances, can stay straight on its' own for a good few metres
- I really can't think of any. Maybe a bit heavy if you just want a simple, small tape measure
I'd really recommend this. It's such good value and brilliant quality. It beats any tape measure we've ever owned and is perfect for home use and measuring large rooms. Great product.
Unlike our current one, you don't have to pull out the tape part and keep pressing the button in one direction to stop the tape retracting - it stops where you pull it out to, allowing you to just keep on pulling until you get to the desired length. You only use the buttons to retract it, and depending on how much you press this button, the tape will retract accordingly fast.
There is a small wrist strap that we won't be using, but which would put strain on the average wrist, and there's a belt clip that also won't be used, though I can see how both might be handy for a workman. The only complaint that I have is that is it huge and heavy, so much so that I nearly injured a cat and myself yesterday, as the body of the tape measure kept falling out of my small hand during use.
This set contains three measuring tapes (5, 8, 10 meters) each suitable for different applications, 5 meters one is small and useful for almost all uses, rarely do domestic needs exceed 5 meters, 8 and 10 meters are more common for construction as there they are needed more often than in domestic use.
The retraction mechanism is strong, yet not too strong that it will snap the tape back and potentially hurt you, the release buttons on the front and bottom can be pressed to release the tape, you can adjust the retraction force by changing how strongly you press on the release button.
The build quality is very good, however, the wrist wrap is nothing much so I do not expect it would last, but I seldom use it.
Overall, AmazonBasics made another great product of great quality for an affordable price, so it is easy to recommend it.
Here we have a three-pack of metal tape measures - 5, 8 and 10m in length with metric and imperial measures.
Each comes with a belt clip and a wrist loop. The tape extends and self-locks (a very nice touch). To release the tape there are two buttons - a big one on the top and a small one on the bottom. There are no instructions but playing around with it soon gets you the hang of it.
The units are quite chunky, especially the 10m one.
These are good tape measures. I have only two quibbles. Currently there's no price given so I cannot comment on value for money. I also don't see the point of a three pack. Surely most people will only need one length?
The locking mechanism for these is a little bit different than my previous tapes in that it will automatically lock when pulled out and pressing either of the the buttons - one on the front and one underneath - will retract the tape. It takes a bit of getting used to but is quite intuitive after a while.
You can never have enough tape measures around, and it is often handy to have one at the site and one in the workshop, so a pack of three does sort of make sense as opposed to just buying the longest one and not using the full length.
