This small and shiny Craftsman pocket tape measure might be small, but it packs a couple of nice features into its compact size.
To start, the new Craftsman tape measure, CMHT37109S, is small and pocketable, which makes it convenient.
It has a 9-foot tape, which Craftsman says is long enough for use on standard lengths of building materials. I don’t usually like using tape measures at their maximum extension, but if you want to use to measure ~8 foot boards and sheets, you can.
Ooh, it’s got a magnet. A tape measure you find easily is a tape measure you’re less likely to lose or misplace.
And… a bottle opener. Because… why not?
It’s a compact 9-foot tape measure that you can fit in your pocket, stick to your steel tool cabinets, workbench legs, or most refrigerators, and the bottle opener might also come in handy.
Now, to answer the question posed by my headline, the Craftsman pocket tape measure has everything except for… a pocket clip.
If you are okay giving up the bottle opener to gain a pocket clip, check out Dewalt’s pocket tape measure, also with a 9-foot tape.
There’s also a Milwaukee 10-foot keychain tape measure with LED light. Personally I like their smaller keychain tape measures better.
