The old adage is, “Measure twice, cut once” which is super sound advice. After all, in most cases, you can’t cut twice if your single measurement was wrong. The Quickdraw Pro is a measuring tape that takes your measurement accuracy to the next level and marks the cut line for you.
This handy gadget works just like a normal measuring tape. Just measure out the distance you need as you would if you were handling any measuring tape. But with this one, after you’ve reached that, you can then use it to mark what you’re working on with graphite before you make the cut. No pencil searching needed.
This measuring tape is pretty low on tech which is the downside here. No digital read outs, no connection to an app. Just a normal measuring tape. It would be nice to see something like this with a little more tech added but we all need our basic tools too and this can help lead to less mistakes when installing shelves. The Quickdraw Pro is $25.63.
