Stanley brand 3/4" X 16' Leverlock nTape: A Measure of Quality at a Reasonable Price
Jan 2, 2011

a Very Helpful Review
by the Epinions community
Pros:16" on center markings
easy release bottom lever
Cons:no extra markings on back of tape
The Bottom Line: I like the Stanley brand 3/4" X 16' Leverlock Tape. It looks good, works well, has lasted and keeps good measure.
I purchased the Stanley brand Leverlock 30-812 3/4" X 16' measuring tape about a year ago as a supplement in my home where I have a few different tapes...somewhere. I like the Stanley "Leverlock" series.

This plastic housed tool is lightweight. Much lighter than most others. Though I do like a solid feel tool in my hand what this lacks in weight, it offers in design. The 2 1/2" x 3" size fits nicely in hand and clips well onto a belt. The top offers three rubber non-slip ribs that keep the tool steady in the palm of hand. I like that. The bottom release button works easily and freely. I prefer the bottom release rather than a thumb release on some tapes. The release works much smoother and is controlled better in that position. I like the rubber feel of that bottom release too.
The release works fast upon a squease and immidiately stops the tape when released.
The 16' tape is broken down into 32nds, 16th, 8ths, 1/4s, half and full inch on both sides of the top of the tape. The boytom offers nothing. I like finding handy measurement scales and such on other tapes, there. On this one it is totally blank. Not good.
I lioke the inch markings that go along with footage. If a measurement is given two feet three inches a quick look takes the eye to the black marking stating 2FT and the red makings stating 3. I like that when framing out window or door.
There are also 16" on center stud markings in a red colour, differing from the black of all the others.
There are no markings on the very bottom of the tape either. Some do have a handy measure there. Not a big loss in my mind.
I have dropped this Stanley 16' Leverlock many times and aside from burrs and scratches it holds up very well. The bright yellow colour casing remains a bold colour and looks good. The release action continue to react well and the measurement lines continue to be clear to read.
I can recommend this as an extra measuring tape around the house.
