The GripLine tape is ideal for plumbers, electricians and carpenters, according to the company.

“Combined with an 8-1/2-foot standout and pivoting magnetized tip design, the GripLine tape saves time spent securing conventional measures by allowing the user to grip multiple types of surfaces – such as metal conduit, rebar, threaded rod, PVC pipe — from a significant distance,” product manager Loren Doppelt said in a statement.

The GripLine tapes are available in 16’, 25’ and 30’ lengths and retail for $16.99 to $23.99
