Use your Tape Measure for more than just measuring
A product review
This is a handy addition to your tape measure. It adds a few functions to your tape to keep you from reaching for another tool, saving you time.
This simple add on to your favorite tape measure will allow you to add 8 features not presently on your reliable tape. It provides the following:
Ability to mark a 90 degree square mark
notches for 45 and 22.5 degrees
a reusuable note pad for jotting down dimensions
notches to allow scribing at 3.5 and 1.5 inches for standard stud and 2x2 dimensions
Easy measuring for single stud and double stud layout.
I found the note pad and the 90 degree square features the most useful. It can keep you from finding your square for every cross-cut. The note pad also came in pretty handy.
The biggest drawback was just the awkwardness of having something attached to the side of my tape measure. I'm a right-handed person, and the tool is attached to where my hand holds the tape measure, and it didn't fit neatly in my hand. Perhaps with time I would get used to it.
If you have more than one tape in your box, you might want one with the square'n tape to give you a tool that can help in many situations. Priced right at just under $6.
