4.0 out of 5 stars Simple
Does just what it should. Only not five stars as you can't choose which colour you get, but that's f course no relflection on the product. It's small enough to keep in your pocket, and feels quite robust despite being made of plastic. It has a small button in the middle to retract the measure.

1.0 out of 5 stars give an inch and take a mile - literally
I am giving this one star as there is no zero star option. Now, call me picky, but a tape measure has a certain function. It measures things. So its a little surprising to find that the inch scale on this tape measure actually stacks up at 1.3 inches rather than the preferred inch. Therefore, the tape measure is useless. Thank goodness I realised this before I used...

I am giving this one star as there is no zero star option. Now, call me picky, but a tape measure has a certain function. It measures things. So its a little surprising to find that the inch scale on this tape measure actually stacks up at 1.3 inches rather than the preferred inch. Therefore, the tape measure is useless. Thank goodness I realised this before I used it to provide measurements.
For all you metric bunnies out there, the centimetre part of the tape is fine.
I was also annoyed at the leaflet that came with the product. If you are not satisfied then contact the seller. If you are happy give us a rave review - ok I have paraphrased that but essentially I don't like being told what I can and cannot do in terms of reviews....... so I have gone ahead and contacted them and left a review. Surely the purpose of Amazon reviews is to help other customers??!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you need to use inches, 3 Nov 2013

This is useless if you need to use inches. If you use this if you measure something at 6" the true measurement is 8". It may be ok if you are on a diet and need to make yourself feel good but no use for anything else. Metric measurement is accurate. I am sure there are much better out there. It does retract. Even at the price I bought it for it was really a waste. Sorry.

when i looked at the measurement markings on the tape measure i found the the inch markings where incorrect, so i compared them to other tape measures/rulers i have and found that the centimetre/millimetre markings where correct but the inch/16ths/8ths markings are incorrect so i cannot use the item for the purpose it was designed for. the following included for reference to fact [1 inch = 2.54 cm].

1.0 out of 5 stars Measurement inaccurate, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Retractable Dressmaker's Tape Measures 60 inch ~ 150cm Assorted Colours
I would not recommend this product as 1" actually measures about 1½" which is a huge difference! The reverse side of the tape has centimetres, which are relatively accurate, but as I needed the inches rather than centimetres, it is un-useable. I bought two, which were inexpensive, but would not use this company again. Very disappointing.

The measurements on this are in no way accurate, but did result in a elated few minutes when I thought I had lost 4 inches! It's a bargain, but for good reason...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dodgy measurements, 8 Oct 2014
This review is from: Retractable Dressmaker's Tape Measures 60 inch ~ 150cm Assorted Colours
I purchased this for work - had been using it to take measurements for people who have had hip replacements as there are precautions to follow after so certain furniture needs to be at the right height. Luckily, after a very confusing couple of days at work and using a conversion on the internet, i realised that the inces side is totally wrong and does not correlate the right conversion from the cm side. Luckily i saw this and rectified my mistakes before someone was harmed. I wish i had of read the previous feedback but i really did not expect that a tape measure would be faulty. I definitely do not recommend anyone buys this!
