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.

TOUGH GEAR 5.5 m pocket tape with belt clip

This pocket tape measure from SHINWA with a 25 mm wide tape is designed for regular outside use under harsh conditions. The carbon steel tape is nylon-coated to protect it against moisture. The highly effective return spring is made of carbon steel. The belt clip is separate and firmly attached to your belt, you snap the tape into this clip. It is released from the clip by pressing the top red button. Even in the most awkward position the tape will not part company with the belt clip as would be the case with more basic belt clips. A spring-loaded retaining cord with a wire core extendable up to one metre and with a snap hook at each end makes it virtually impossible to lose this tape even if you detach it from your belt - or if it happens to drop out of your hand.

BMImeter pocket tape 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 when measuring and marking on a wall because it is very stable. 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 tape, in white painted stainless steel, is waterproof, unbreakable, light and very durable. Push the stopper to rewind the tape.
  • Rewind stopper
  • Belt clip
  • Millimetre graduation
  • Width of tape 16 mm
  • Thickness of tape 0.25 mm
  • Case (open, round) 70 x 22 mm
  • Accuracy EC-class II (±0.9 mm per 2 m)
