Tape measures have really gone down hill the last couple years. Craftsman was my "go to" supplier for tape measures but, they switched suppliers and now I'm lucky to get a month out of one before it's broke. I spend a couple hundred $ on different brands trying to find one that wasn't complete junk and this is the best I've found.
The one I'm currently using is about a year old and still works great even though the case no longer looks quite so shiny. I've started to build a stock pile of them before Stanley decides to junk them down and starts making them in China. They're still currently Made in the USA. If your looking for a good, no frills tape measure, you might want to give one a try.
