Since 1869 Lufkin has been manufacturing and supplying top-quality measuring tools with very high accuracy.
True to their reputation, 1000 series power return tape measure is precise in its measurements and durable in its materials and design.
Designed to fit perfectly into your hand, the closed case is made from super-strong, lightweight, ABS plastic that has an eye-catching color so it's easy to find. The 1” wide yellow blade is made of steel with a clear coat for excellent visibility. The numerals are in a clear, easy-to-read font.
This engineer's tape has the A30 style blade. It is 26' (8m) long with 2 sets of graduations. On the top edge the measurements are given in ft/in/16ths, while the bottom edge is graduated by m/cm/mm.
This tape measure is a self-rewind with its power return. There is a special cushion for the blade return so as to prevent injury. It also has a toggle lock feature so that you don't have the blade return while reading.
As added benefits, there is a virtually unbreakable quad hook at the end of the blade, and a convenient, removable belt hook.
