A push-button finger brake provides smooth, controlled blade retraction with no snap-back.
This 16 ft. Slide-Lock Tape Measure from Bauer™ has a durable steel blade with a protective nylon matte finish for easy readability and extra long life. The rugged rubber overmold case offers a better grip and increased impact resistance. The heavy duty slide-lock secures the blade during use and a convenient push-button finger brake prevents snap-back when finished. The blade is marked in 1/16 in. graduations for precise measurement.
