New tape measures from Kapro


Kapro Tools offers its 510 Optivision tape measure series in 10' (3m), 16 (5m) and 26' (8m) with a dual scale of imperial and metric measurements.

“The 510 Optivision sets a new standard in tape measure visibility with its double-printed blade for horizontal and vertical quick-reading and marking. With triple-colored oversized gradation, it provides a clear reading at all conditions,” the company said in a statement.

“With built-to-last features, the 510 has a 10-foot drop-tested polycarbonate casing, an impact-resistant mechanism and a Nylon-coated steel-blade abrasion-resistant blade. The 510 includes extra-strong rare earth magnets on a double-sided end-hook for measurement stability. An auto-lock mechanism allows users to conveniently lock and unlock the extra-wide blade and the 26' version features a 12' standout.”
