I have a self locking tape measure that I loved until it wore out and wasn’t self locking anymore. It would want to wind back up every time you pulled the tape out. It made it so difficult to use. Last night I pulled it apart to see why it wasn’t working anymore. So with a little help of my friend JB Weld I was able to get it working as new again!!!

my wife got me one for my stocking this Christmas. I had not had one, and really liked it. Unfortunately it wore out in a month. Nice concept but once a little worn it started slipping. I’m back to my old tried and true. But love the concept.
