This 25-foot measuring tape features a magnetic tip that sticks to metal surfaces for fast, hassle-free one-person measurements.

IDEAL Industries introduced the MAG-TAPE, a 25-foot measuring tape featuring a magnetic tip that sticks to metal surfaces for fast, hassle-free one-person measurements. The MAG-TAPE's tip acts as a second person, gripping tightly onto steel or iron. Further enhancing the MAG-TAPE is its thick rubber boot, which provides the user with a non-slip grasp while also protecting the case from harmful drops. In addition, a built-in stopper absorbs the impact of the returning tape to prevent the case from being damaged. The MAG-TAPE's nylon-coated steel blade maximizes the life of the tool by being resistant to abrasion and rust. The blade graphics are oversized to enhance readability. Smooth retraction is assured due to a strong spring. (IDEAL Industries, Sycamore, Ill.)
