The new design of the Milwaukee STUD Tape Measures allows for a more compact, comfortable, and ergonomic fit for the user. An optimized spring controls the blade retraction speed, minimizing whip. The STUD comes with a Finger Stop to control blade retraction and 2-sided blade printing for increased readability. The tape comes with a fully reinforced frame that can survive an 80 foot drop*.

EXO360 Technology

Protecting the blade from rips and tears; the tape comes equipped with EXO360 Blade Technology. The technology creates a high-density nylon coating that wraps 360 degrees around the blade, assuring a blade that is abrasion-resistant and can endure continuous use. With cutting edge technology, the tape has the longest-lasting blade on the market.
