Background

Sometime back in the 1st quarter of 2020, I had been thinking of getting a long measuring tape to measure some of the stuff that I plan to buy for the future. I happened to stumble across a new MR. DIY shop at Anchorpoint Shopping Centre. As such, I went in and take a look at the stuff that they have. There were various measuring tapes available, and I found the INGCO 8m Retractable Steel Measuring Tape to my liking. After some quick thought, I decided to get it from the shop.

The Product

The INGCO 8m Retractable Steel Measuring Tape has an all rubber cover with a self-locking function. It has two retract buttons, one on top and one at the bottom. As it is an 8m measuring tape, the thing itself it's big. It is a solidly build measuring tape.

Here are some pictures that I've taken on the measuring tape:

Usage and Experience

The INGCO 8m Retractable Steel Measuring Tape is now my go-to measuring tape if I need to measure big stuff like furniture, walls, and appliances length. One good feature of the measuring tape is that it is self-locking. Pull to measure and when you stop measuring, the tape stays there. 

To retract the tape, simply press either one of the retract buttons on top or bottom of the measuring tape.

Conclusion

Overall, the INGCO 8m Retractable Steel Measuring Tape is a solidly well-built measuring tape. It is the only measuring tape that I need unless I need to measure stuff of more than 8m. It is unlikely, but we will never know :)
