GATORTAPE Metric Scale Tape Measure

  • The GATORTAPE was born out of a passion to improve speed and accuracy when surveying for blinds and shutters. The requirement to quickly and accurately measure internal dimensions and highlight imperfections in the window reveal, became the basis for the original specification.
  • When you hold the GATORTAPE it fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and no matter what measurement you're taking, the weight of the body is balanced and there is always a spare finger to lock in that important measurement.
  • The GATORTAPE sets a new standard, re-thinking the ergonomics of a tape measure and encompasses many design features that will allow you to complete and repeat tasks easier than ever before. The Class 1 accuracy, large viewing window and comfort will ensure this tape measure is always at the top of your tool kit
