Milwaukee Tool announces the next generation of tape measures – new Magnetic Tape Measures with Finger Stop. The new Tape Measure lineup is designed with features that build upon the innovation that has made Milwaukee tape measures an industry favorite among professionals, improving ergonomics and maximizing functionality, while continuing to provide the longest life in the industry.
“Milwaukee® tape measures have come to be known for their extraordinary durability and longest life in the industry,” said Brandon Miller, Group Marketing Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “As a result of our user-focused research and the success of our tape measure line, we’ve now set the bar even higher by enhancing key features on these news tapes to help deliver an even better experience for the professional tradesman.”
Striving for continuous innovation and improvement, the new line of premium tape measures are more compact and ergonomic, providing a better fit in the user’s hand. An improved finger stop mechanism protects users’ fingers during retraction, while maximizing stability during layout applications. A more compact magnetic hook will allow users to get into smaller spaces while taking measurements. For added functionality, the tape measures also include an improved wire form belt clip that has been optimized for bag/belt storage and reducing pocket tearing.
Just like all Milwaukee tapes, these new tape measures continue to deliver longer life than other industry-leading tape measures because of proprietary Nylon Bond Blade Protection, and a 5-point reinforced frame for drop protection. Together these features make Milwaukee tape measures the most durable tape measures in the industry. Dual-sided printing with blueprint scale on bottom side provides even more functionality while working overhead and with blueprints.
Available August 2016, the Magnetic Tape Measure with Finger Stop line will initially include (4) Tape Measures, in lengths of 16’, 25’, 30’, and 35’, as well as (2) metric options.
The Premium Magnetic Tape Measures confirm Milwaukee’s unrelenting commitment to constantly improving upon solutions, and increasing jobsite productivity. All are backed by Milwaukee’s limited lifetime warranty.
