Need to keep the tape cleanI agee with Sid and the locking mechanism soon fails once any dust or dirt gets on the tape. I've found you need to wrip the tape clean when it starts to fail. Also blowing it out on low pressure with an air gun helps.

Ok if you don't need a tape that locks !Used this tape a hand full of times and the " self locking " mechanism just about hardly works, really poor for setting out rods when the tape won't stay still.
