The Tape Tip a little plastic end that slips on the and of your tape measure to eliminate creative body contortions when measuring at an angle over long distances. 

The flat “tip” of your tape inserts snuggly into a slot cut into the center of the ‘Tip, and tiny rare earth magnets lock it in place, also helping the ‘Tip to stick to metal surfaces for measuring.  The ‘Tip’s arrow-like shape fits perfectly into corners (with a 1″ addition to measurement) or a lip on the bottom simulates use of the standard tape.  You can also measure to the outside tip for a 1-1/2″ addition. 

For $3 dollars, this looks worth a try if you measure corner-to-corner often.

    Does this mean I can start measuring once and then cutting once now?

  2. Sean O'Hara says:

    Well for me it’s always been: Measure twice cut once… swear, measure again, cut again… swear some more – then, redesign the project to utilize the “new” shorter lengths.

    Of course there are other methods I suppose 😉

  3. Mark says:

    I measured it twice and but it was still too short. Darn!

    Measure long & trim…

    That’s the Vulcan carpenters motto.

    measure twice cut once, trip to hardware store, measure again and cut final time.

    I have one of these in my tool belt. I don’t use it often, but when I do, it saves me from a heck of a lot of frustration. It’s well worth carrying.
