Our standard Steel Tape (ST) series tapes come in the industry’s most durable metal housing. These long, steel tapes have a compact, closed, metal case that fits nicely in your hand. The flush-folding crank pops up for easy rewinding. If you’re measuring alone, the metal catch hook is set at zero, so there’s no need for a correction. The graduations are painted black on a durable, bright-yellow steel blade.
