That is pretty slick. My tape measure is all gritty and grimey, it could never glide out like that. But I don't have the skill either, so it doesn't matter.

i'd like to know what kind of a tape measure this is that allows you to throw it out that far and still retracts properly

Stanley makes them. You can get them at a hardware store. Craftsman makes them too I think. You have to keep it clean and well oiled though.

A fake one.

i've been using a 25'x1" stanly for 30 years and 'though i think it is the best tape made, of all the ones i've bought over the years i never had one that would do this

Do you know how? I know there is a technique to it. But I don't know that technique. I know you have to hold the lock open, thats about it. I've seen millwrights do it. Just fling it out fat, not actually catch anything with it.

I could be wrong about stanley, I went on their website to find witch one I've seen do it, but it wasn't there. It was a leverlock design, not the power lock. But it was a steel case with a burgundy lever on the bottom. None of them on the site are like that. I could have sworn it was Stanley.

I have seen many people toss them out 10 or 15 feet, but it was to catch the side of a machine or hit a wall, not to turn on a light or open a portapotty door. I have tried, but I can only get it a few feet.

Get pissed off, but you can fling thoes tapes out pretty far. I don't know about hooking things though.

I have owned many brands of tapes in the past and as we speak,no fuckin tape and no amount of skill is gonna let you fling that thing that far,EVER.

all i hear from all you retarded naysayers is "i cant do it so neither can anyone else"
8 years ago
no seriously guys. that was not real, i hope you're joking. You can see the obvious editing with the first thing he does. Just keep your eyes on the guy that reacts.

Nice try but no Cigar. No decent tape extends like that. It may have a 10 foot standout but doesn't extend like that.
