There are a lot of fancy “tape” measures on the market today that use apps and the like which are very useful. Sometimes you just want something that’s pretty standard, with a bit more features. The Laser Tape Measure is a physical tape measure combined with a laser one for added benefits.
This tape measure doesn’t require a second set of hands to use. You can measure up to 16 feet with the standard tape measure and up to 50 feet with the laser. This way you have a solid tool for short distance, small jobs, and a tool for things that need a little more reach without adding a second piece of equipment to the box.
The laser is button activated and reads out on a LCD screen, no special bells or whistles. It runs on two AA batteries (which are included). Unfortunately it only measures in in feet and inches so if you’re part of the world that uses the metric system (which is pretty much everyone) then you’ll need to do a little math before committing to cutting. You can pick up this gadget for $24.99.
