Frankfort, IL - The GripLine is the first tape measure designed to grip round surfaces, such as metal conduit, rebar, threaded rod, PVC pipe – from a significant distance, saving users’ time. The patent-pending GripLine has the ability to hold rounded edges up to 2-inches in diameter. 

The new ProScribe tape measure features a retractable 1-1/2-inch rigid scribe guide and centering pin to help contactors’ measure and mark to cut lengths and radiuses. The ProScribe integrates several valuable marking functions, including the compass-like ability to measure and scribe circles, as well as the chalk-line-accuracy to measure and mark/score straight lines. Users can also easily position a case knife or carpenter’s pencil against the tape's metal tip to cut/score or mark the desired width.
