self locking tape not my favorite

Review Summary

This tape measure is getting good reviews on Amazon, but personally I don't like it as well as the type you lock down with a button. These lock automatically as you pull them out. You have to push the button for the tape to retract. Only problem is that they tend not to lock down very well. They creep back in too easily and there's no way to lock it down solidly, which can obviously effect accuracy.
The overall quality and accuracy is very good but I wouldn't buy another one of these, due to the locking mechanism.

Not impressed

Review Summary

I purchased this tape measure because it was inexpensive. After about a week of hard usage I discarded it because the blade was breaking and the mechanism was malfunctioning and not retracting. I will never purchase this brand of tape measure again.
