Product overview

• Large, clear and easy to read digital display
• Centre line to ensure accurate measurements
• Long-term memory that can store up to two measurements
• Re-zero function to ensure accuracy and allow offset measurements
• Inside and outside measurements for flexibility when measuring in awkward spaces

What makes the eTape16 different from other tape measures?
The eTape16 is digital tape measure built on the traditional solid tape measure design. The eTape16 can either operate digitally using its large clear integrated LCD display, or by using the clearly marked measurements on the tape’s side. The case of this tape measure is made from high quality polycarbonate to ensure durability.

What happens when the battery in the eTape16 runs out?
The battery supplied can give you up to 64 hours of continuous measuring, and is easily replaceable (CR2032). If the battery does run flat, however, you can still use the tape measure as it displays all the numbers on the blade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good purchase and has proved very useful. The instructions let it down. I had to request some advice which was good and solved my problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Marvellous but some bad basic design I live this tape and it's great in every area but one. If you hold unit in left hand and draw out tape to the right the display is upside down. if you hold unit in right hand and draw out tape to left the buttons are underneath and you cannot see the buttons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Accuracy I brought this as I thought it would be more accurate to read than a normal tape, soon found out digital display is out to the tape by 2mm which is not good
