Stanley 33-116 16-Foot PowerLock Tape Rule

What is this?

A metal, 16 foot tape measure.

Why did I buy it?

I received this a LONG time ago when I went to college and needed to look after my own apartment. At 16 feet it is just the perfect size for the average apartment while still being small enough to use for measuring the random object. 

You can't fake knowing the size of something, and when it comes to shipping a package I want to know my measurements are accurate. Everyone has some form of tape measure, but if for some reason you don't I would highly recommend this one from Stanley.
