A quick fix to the consistent losing of your tape measure.
Here’s a tip I discovered by accident. I had been installing some rare earth magnets in a project, so I had a few in my pocket. As I stepped away from my workbench, I noticed that my 12 ft. tape measure was attached to my pocket! It’s not a lot of trouble to use the tape’s clip as intended, but having the tape measure stuck to your pocket is even easier. I keep a couple magnets stuck to my tape measure’s clip so I don’t lose them. This won’t work with a 25 ft. tape; they’re just too heavy. And don’t put the magnets in the same pocket as your phone or credit cards.
