Note:
On SHINWA tape measures you will find a small red arrow every 455 mm, ie, at 455 mm, 910 mm, 1365 mm, 1820 mm, etc. This is the distance measured from the centre of a post to the next between any two or multiple posts that support the roof of a traditional Japanese house. 455 mm is the rounded sum of 1 shaku (303 mm = 10/33 m) plus 5 sun (5 x 30.3 mm = 5/33 m). These units were officially obsoleted in Japan as long ago as 1966, but they continue to be popular, especially with artisans. Japanese manufacturers still add these markings to their modern tape measures.

Pocket Tape BMImeter It is not just the fantastic design that distinguishes this tape measure, but also it’s extreme practicality. In contrast to other tape measures with a rounded top, this measure has a rounded bottom, enabling one to get a much more precise lineal measurement comparable to those taken with a straight ruler. This tape is especially useful while measuring and marking on a wall because the band is very stable. And the round, open housing is also very light so that the tape held on the wall won’t kink and fall away. It can also be held easily in place to mark the distance needed. The band, in white painted stainless steel, is waterproof, unbreakable, light, and very durable. Push on the stopper, and the band will roll itself up.

Pocket Tape Steel Rule "472 twoComp" made by BMI This pocket tape measure has very robust mechanics with high durability. The complex structure of the band guarantees long-lasting readability. The decimal numbers are in red for better visibility. The band automatically rolls itself back into the housing, and can be locked to length with a stopper button. There is a middle setting on the button that allows the band to be adjusted in or out slightly with one hand. The housing is made of shock-resistant ABS plastic with a soft component for a better grip. The other components are made of stainless steel and so designed to be used both inside and outside in all weathers.
Accuracy according to EC-class II.

BMI Tape Rules This tape measure from BMI features a plastic grip with excellent ergonomics, and a very solid aluminum frame. It can be changed from right-handed to left-handed use in seconds using a 4 mm Allen key (not included).

Park position prevents the accidental unrolling of the measuring tape.

The end of the tape features a ring to fix it in place, but there is also the possibility to hook it over an edge using a fold-down lever with spurs to hold it in place (see the photo on the left below). The lever can be folded back up to use the ring. The end of the tape can be locked in the stowed position. The Flextop-Tapefitting protects the first 10 centimeters of the steel tape using flexible plastic sleeve, to assure that the tape is protected in the area of highest wear and potential damage.

The rule is manufactured to the EG-measurment class II (2.3 mm over 10 m for plastic and steel measuring tapes, at a temperature of 20° C and a tension of 20 N.
