1. Product Introduction
When it comes to construction and craftsmanship, taking accurate measurements can be the difference between a great finished product and a subpar one. Luckily, with the proper approach, using a tape measure can be a quick, easy way to get you the information you need about your project. Knowing how to use and read both a retractable measure and a traditional ribbon-style tape measure can be a major asset to anyone working with his or her hands, so learn today and start measuring!
2. Parts of a Tape Measure (with Diagram)
A good tape measure is absolutely critical for those in construction, plumbing, or one of many other professional trades. Did you know tape measures are a lot more complicated than a simple case and metal measuring strip? There are actually five major parts of a tape measure, each of which has an important role in fast and accurate measuring.
▲ Belt Clip
Due to the extreme usefulness of having a tape measure on hand, it can be a pain to lose your’s. Manufacturers understand the need for quick access and include a belt clip on one side of all but the smallest models. Even if you normally use a tool belt with a built-in tape measure pocket, the clip won’t get in the way.
This retractable, flexible metal strip is the main component used for measuring. Markings allow for both metric and inch scales (sometimes on the same tape measure), while additional markings provide additional scaling information.
This might come as a surprise, but the case is actually part of the measuring device. When measuring into a corner, you can add the length of the case (most standard models have a 3 inch long case) instead of trying to fold the tape into the corner.
You probably already knew that the metal hook on the end is for latching onto the end of a surface. But that little slot in the hook is actually designed to help attach the hook to an anchor point and prevent sliding. This also gives you a nifty way to draw circles by turning the tape into a compass.
