Clipping your tape to your belt is at best fiddly and leaves your tape exposed. The Makita P-71831 has an over-flap to secure your tape when walking or climbing ladders. It works well; it’s robust, very simple and very effective. It keeps your tape safe, secure, clean and dry; a strong recommendation to anyone in the building profession. It is suitable for any common builder’s tape measure from 3 to 10m. Rigid sides keep the shape of the holder and the hole on the side makes it easy to remove the measuring tape from the holder. The polyester material construction makes this a very durable item. The holder fits on any Makita tool belt or normal clothing belt.
