Swanson Tool Co. Inc.: Tape Measure
The GripLine tape measure features a patented rotating tip specifically designed to hold rounded edges up to 2 inches in diameter, such as metal conduit, rebar, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and black iron pipe. With the ability to catch, hold, and measure multiple types of materials, the GripLine tape is ideal for plumbers, electricians, builders, and carpenters. A slotted groove in the pivoting head allows the oversized 1 3⁄8-inch tip to slide seamlessly toward an object, thereby extending the tape’s gripping range and strength. With the 360-degree hooking capability, the tip design gives contractors maximum control when drawing the tape against an object, making the tape feel more like an extension of the user’s arm than a hand tool.
