New Power-Return Rule from Klein

Klein Tools recently added a Tape Stop power-return rule to its existing line of power-return rules. The 150th anniversary limited edition tape measure features a unique self-lock blade that automatically locks the blade.
For ease of use, the new power return rule is designed with oversized, easy-to-read, numbers and a dual-end hook that allows for effortless attachment.
The Tape Stop Power-Return Rule features architectural markings in 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch scale printed on the first 10 feet on the back side of the nylon-coated blade for easy elevated and flat surface measurements. Weighing less than a pound, the rule is one inch wide and can be extended to 25 feet.
This year marks Klein Tools’ 150th anniversary. In 1857, Klein Tools’ founder and blacksmith Mathias Klein forged the first-known U.S.-made pliers in Chicago. Since then, Klein Tools has grown to be the leading manufacturer of a variety of hand tools and occupational protective equipment.
