It is obvious that we need to cover some basics about tape measures that most people will not be able to understand, but also it can be useful for people who are curious about these things like me.
The basic principle of a tape measure is that it tells you how much space you need to make between two points. The more space you have between points, the more accurate the measurement becomes. A real-life example could be measuring out your own door frame. But let’s imagine we have a corner in our house where we intend to put a shoe rack. The corner itself is 5 feet by 5 feet, and the shoe rack will be 6 feet tall, so let’s say we want to make sure that our rack fits right into the corner — it should be 3 feet tall — sticking up out of the wall by 1 foot. So if we measure out 2 inches from the wall (where our shoe rack will go), then 1 inch from the end of our rack (where it meets with the wall), and another 2 inches from our corner (where we want to stick it together), then we get an accurate reading: 3′ 10″ or 3 ft 10″. If instead, we measured our mount at 4 inches from where it sticks up into the wall, then 4 inches from where it meets with the wall, then another 4 inches from where it sticks up into the wall, and another 4 inches from where it meets with the wall, and so on until we get an even more accurate measurement: 5′ 6″ or 6 ft 6″. In other words: when you are measuring something small like a door frame in a room, always use an angle measuring device like one of those little plastic strips used in chemistry labs. This way you can make sure your measurements are accurate enough for any situation in which you might want to use them — say if you are renovating an old house or repointing an existing one; if you are doing home improvements like putting up new walls; or if you need measurements for ongoing maintenance work on your home such as painting walls or repairing plumbing fixtures (as long as they seem relatively stable). You can also check your angles with a ruler too.
2. What is a flexible stainless steel tape measure used for?
Some products, such as stainless steel tape measures and flexible stainless steel tape measures, are designed to be flexible, while others are designed to be rigid. And both types have uses that are very different from one another.
A flexible stainless steel tape measure is simply a metal strip that can bend into various shapes, usually in order to measure the length or width of things — including human body parts, objects, furniture and stuff. The most popular example of this type of product is the plastic-coated stainless steel tape measure. Some examples of rigid stainless steel tape measures are the metal strips used for measuring height in buildings or industrial applications; or the road sign or traffic sign that use a spike to indicate a certain length or width.
3. Uses a flexible stainless steel tape measure
There is no easy way to answer this question, but we can make a more educated guess. If a flexible stainless steel tape measure was considered to be a commodity good we might say, “a good tape measure for that use case”. However, as we saw in the other subtopic, there is an increased need for flexibility in the use of these tools and they are also used extensively in manufacturing. So, there is likely an increasing need to be able to achieve that flexibility. It follows that there must be an increasing demand for these tools.
The question: What are the uses of a flexible stainless steel tape measure?
We have seen many different uses for flexible stainless steel tape measures. We experimented with them at home with our houseplants and found that they worked well almost everywhere in our house (including on the walls and ceilings). They are also highly useful when setting up your home studio or recording equipment because you can position them anywhere you want and move them wherever you want – even upside down!
