White Series Tough Case Tapes
Made with a sleek, triangular design, the new White Series Tough Case Tape boasts an improved stability and extra durability with its nylon coating feature. It provides users with a comfortable anti-slip hold material with matching easy-to-lock capability allowed by its ergonomic design slider.
The tough Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) casing passed four major tests to ensure optimum quality and usability. For the drop test, the White Series Tough Case Tape passed the drops from ten different locations; its Airlock Technology even survived the drop from a height of nine meters.
What’s more, the new tape technology undergone and passed the solvent test, which immerses the material in a variety of oils and acids. It also went through the lifecycle and standout tests where the tape went through repeated cycling tests with a spring and blade tape rule, and used the distance extended as a measure of effectiveness.
With the new White Series Tough Case Tape, users are expected to enjoy measuring for up to 1.8 meters, experience better readability and increased versatility due to its double end hook design, and higher accessibility with its 45-degree clip.
Stanley knives are ergonomically designed to maximize performance for professionals while bearing safety in mind for their added ease of mind. With the new Snap-off Knife, Stanley ensures that this new hand tool boasts torsional resistance, blade opening force and cap removal force to meet high-quality performance. To make this possible, the new Snap-off Knife has gone through rigorous tests including drop, solvent and compressions tests.
What sets this new knife apart from other brands is its rigid stainless steel barrel feature which provides smooth action and corrosion resistance, and its unique ergonomic thumb pad which enables firm and comfort holding position.

It measure distances even when point A and/or point B is not acceptable for linear measurement and stores up to the last five measurements taken by the user. With its backlit, two-line display, the unit can provide visibility in all working conditions. Its robust design technology allows the device to be water and debris resistant.
Lastly, the new Laser Distance Measuring TLM330 has a range of up to 100 meters, with accuracy of +/-1mm. It is built with an inclinometer, which may be used as a digital level, calculate indirect height values or indirect horizontal distance. Compared with the TLM165, the TLM330 has a large backlit with three-line display, and can store the last twenty measurements taken by the user. Same with the TLM165, it has a Pythagoras indirect height solution, multifunction end piece that delivers versatility and accuracy of measurements, and has an over-molded housing and IP 54 water/debris resistance.
