“Never have torn pants from your tape measure again,” reads FastCap’s Speed Clip product page. Maybe I’m a bit insensitive to some men’s plight, but I’ve never ripped my pants grabbing my tape. Still, clipping and unclipping a tape measure to your pants can sometimes be a real pain in the ass. This heavy-duty clip secures to your pants or belt and accepts just about any tape measure, holding it at the ready.
Since a tape measure is only as useful as the measurements you record, it also holds that pencil you keep losing behind your ear. And at a whopping $1, the Speed Clip is indeed “cheaper than new pants.”
