Another returning manufacturer, this time it is Komelon that have come back with a second entry. Just like their first model we looked at, this model also seems, on the surface at least, to be quite simple. But look a little deeper and you have a very interesting feature built into this tool.

Whilst the majority of tape measures are designed to retract automatically, this device is the opposite. So that button on the top is not there to lock the measuring blade. No, instead, as you pull out the blade it automatically locks. The button is actually the release mechanism and once pressed, allows the measuring blade to retract into the tool body.

That is actually pretty cool if you think about it, and it certainly impressed us. It does take a little time to get used to, as you are used to pressing that button to lock not to retract the measuring blade! Still, we like to see some innovation being deployed in the tools we review so well done Komelon.

Aside from that stand out feature, there’s not too much else to get excited about here. The measuring blade is a tad on the thin side, making the measurements look a little bunched and hard to read. The case is rubberized so it feels great and adds protection. The price tag is surprisingly low too, so that’s good to see.

All in all an innovative little tool that is well designed and built.
