Swanson Tool unveiled a new tape measure under its premium Savage brand.
The product features a patent pending rotating tip designed to hold rounded edges up to 2-inches in diameter, such as metal conduit, rebar, threaded rod, PVC and black iron pipe.
With the ability to catch, hold and measure multiple types of materials, the new GripLine tape is ideal for plumbing, electrical, builder and carpenters, framing pros and DIY enthusiasts.
A slotted groove in the innovative, pivoting head allows the oversized 1-3/8-inch tip to slide seamlessly toward an object, thereby extending the tape’s gripping range and strength. With a 360-degree hooking capability, this new tip design gives contractors’ maximum control when drawing the tape against an object, making the tape feel more like an extension of their arm than a hand tool.
“This multi-function, magnetic and pivoting tip is what makes the GripLine tapes a truly innovative solution for builders, contractors, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and DIYers,” says Loren Doppelt, director of product development and marketing for Swanson Tool Co.
