Less subjectively: the metal end of this tape is lose, and it slides around on its rivet quite a bit. So for nice and accurate measurements, I use the 1" mark as the start and subtract an inch from number that I read on the tape. Super annoying. It's an indicator of low quality, and it's frustrating to use.
Next, the tape has inches on one side, centimeters on the other. The numbers on each side of my old Dritz tape start from opposite ends of the tape, so no matter which end I pick up first, it's the "beginning" of the tape, and I can start measuring. But with this Singer tape, the numbers on each side start on the same end -- so I have a 50/50 chance of grabbing the "end" of the tape (noting that there's some blank space at the end of the tape, so I can't even just use that and do the math), and then needing to find the other one to actually start measuring. Which is extra annoying when I'm holding a seam closed with one hand, or when I have it draped around my neck and the "end" of the tape is handy, so I have to pull the other end across my body uncomfortably. If that makes sense.
And finally -- the marks on each face don't match up precisely. Since the numbers start counting from the same end of the tape, when you look at the tape from the side, you'd expect to see inch markings coming from exactly the same spot on the tape. But on this, they're noticeably off -- roughly 1/32". Not a huge deal, as this isn't the tool you'll want for precision but, c'mon! Again, it's just low quality.
I can't believe I care enough to write such a thorough review of such a simple tool, but apparently I do! I'm going to go order another tape from Dritz, and I'll throw this one in the household toolbox.
This tape is well built and a quality item for such minimal cost. I noticed several reviews being negative for a number of reasons but the one I just received is all that it should be and nothing is wrong with it.
Small investment on your part. Order it and see if you get a good one -- otherwise send it back to Amazon within the 30 day return period.
The side in centimeters it's just fine. If you looking to use this tape in inches DO NOT buy. Also, this item
is listed as a Prime item but it's actually NOT. It took almost a month to arrive from China.
