Very intuitive device. Where has this been all my life?
Not as good as I thought it would be.

I bought one of these for me and one for my son. He uses his all of the time. I rarely use mine. The last time I went to use it I could not get it to work correctly. I changed the battery and it still did not work correctly. Totally disappointed in this for the price of the product.
to see the how many inches

It is perfect to see measure because I was always mistaken. Thank goodness.
Difficult to use

It would be real nice if this model matched the one that currently has. I found this one extremely frustrating to use, but the one on eTape16 (must be version 2.0), and its accompanying PDF file were much easier. Alas, I can make it work, but am disappointed.
Easy digital readout

Another great Grommet product. Get exact measurements in the digital readout. Don't have to squint and try to read the little lines. . Easy to save the measurement

Digital Tape Measure

The eTape16 is a digital tape measure that displays results as you measure. Quickly convert measurements to a variety of formats, calculate midpoints, and store results.


Inventor Stephen Crane has spent 15 years on a mission: to make a better tape measure. eTape16 is his third iteration—an easy-to-use physical measuring tape with digital readouts and functions.

As you lengthen the measuring tape, the measurement displays on screen. Tap a button to save. Or convert measurements quickly (from fractions to decimals, or inches to centimeters, for example) and calculate midpoints (great for helping to hang a picture). And no need to bend the tape when measuring into a corner—just select the back of the device as the starting point.

This digital measuring tape simplifies projects with less lunging for paper and pencil and less math to mess up. more Their Story
